All-in-one foam heel dressing
Mepilex Border Heel
Five-layer foam dressing for pressure ulcer prevention and management of heel wounds
Mepilex® Border Heel dressing is the only five-layer foam heel dressing with proprietary Deep Defense TechnologyTM – proven to prevent pressure ulcers when used in conjunction with other standard prevention protocols
This all-in-one dressing design also creates an optimal healing environment for managing moderate- to high-exuding wounds on the heel. It effectively absorbs and retains exudate
This recently-launched enhanced design includes new handling tabs and thicker borders, allowing easier application and patient checking. The heel shape has been refined for good coverage of the high-risk heel area and the malleoli.
The enhanced design still includes Safetac® – the original less-pain contact layer with silicone adhesion. So the dressing moulds softly to skin without sticking to the moist wound
- Proven to prevent pressure ulcers – when used with other standard prevention protocols
- Proprietary Deep Defense Technology* protects against the extrinsic forces - pressure, shear and friction; and manages micro-climate, the key factors responsible for pressure ulcers
- Mepilex Border with Safetac technology minimises pain during dressing changes
- Excellent fluid-handling capacity and retention
- Reduces risk of maceration
