Mepilex® Border is an all-in-one, foam dressing that effectively absorbs and retains exudates, maintaining a moist wound environment. The Safetac® layer seals the wound edges, preventing the exudates from leaking onto the surrounding skin, thus minimizing the risk for maceration. The Safetac® layer ensures that the dressing can be changed without damaging the wound or surrounding skin, or exposing the patient to additional pain.
