Features of Mepilex Border Sacrum Foam Dressing

  • Sacral Shape: The dressing is specifically shaped to fit the sacral area, which is the lower back region above the buttocks. The shape ensures optimal coverage and adherence to the contours of the body, enhancing comfort and protection
  • Foam Absorbent Layer: The dressing incorporates a soft and absorbent foam layer that effectively manages exudate (fluid) from the wound. The foam absorbs and locks away the exudate, preventing it from pooling around the wound and promoting a moist wound-healing environment
  • Safetac Adhesive Technology: The Safetac adhesive technology used in this dressing ensures gentle and secure fixation on the skin. It adheres securely to the surrounding skin, minimizing pain and trauma upon removal while also preventing leakage and reducing the risk of maceration (softening of skin due to excessive moisture)
  • Moisture-Regulating: The dressing has a moisture-regulating function, allowing for moisture vapor transmission while maintaining an optimal level of moisture at the wound site. This helps create a balanced and conducive environment for healing
  • Multi-layered absorbent foam pad: Retention layer stores exudate, non-woven layer spreads and retains fluid, absorption layer transfers exudate to layers above
  • Easy Application and Removal: Features convenient handling tabs that facilitate easy and aseptic application. The tabs ensure a secure and precise positioning of the dressing during application. When it's time to remove the dressing, the Safetac adhesive minimizes pain and skin damage
  • Bacterial Barrier: Self-adherent soft silicone bordered foam dressing that is waterproof and bacteria-proof. This reduces the risk of infection and promotes a clean and sterile environment for wound healing
  • Soft and Conformable: The dressing is made of a soft and flexible material that conforms to the shape of the sacral area, ensuring a comfortable fit. It contours to the body's movements, allowing for improved patient comfort and facilitating a better seal around the wound
  • Areas of use: Treatment of moderate to highly exuding wounds such as pressure ulcers, leg and foot ulcers, traumatic wounds like skin tears and secondary healing wounds, aid in the prevention of skin damage, surgical incisions
