Dressing the heel is rather awkward and is made difficult by the fragility of the skin in this area.
Mepilex Border Heel is an all-in-one foam dressing shaped to fit the heel that effectively absorbs and retains exudate and maintains a moist wound environment. The Safetac layer seals the wound edges, prevents exudate leakage onto the surrounding skin, thus minimising the risk of maceration.
The unique design of Mepilex® Border Heel delivers essential benefits such as:
- Optimised and less stressful healing which promotes a faster recovery for the patient
- Unique and efficient absorption structure delivering optimal healing conditions
- Retention of exudate in the dressing avoids leakage to allow less frequent dressing changes
- Ease of use and high reliability for your patients to feel safe and secure
