When to use Mepilex
Mepilex is designed for a wide range of low- to medium-exuding wounds. You can customise Mepilex by cutting it to fit an individual wound or body location. This makes it ideal for difficult-to-dress areas. You can use Mepilex together with our Tubifast™ fixation.
How to use Mepilex
