Mepilex® Surgical dressing is extra-conformable and easy to use for surgical wounds, cuts and abrasions. It’s self-adherent, thanks to Safetac® – the original atraumatic contact layer that helps reduce pain at dressing change. It’s designed to conform softly to skin without sticking to the moist wound so you can remove it easily without damaging the skin.
The absorbent pad has Flex technology for extra flexibility – so you can rely on it for treating joints such as hips and knees – to support early patient mobility. The design is highly absorbent, to reduce dressing change frequency. Reducing dressing change frequency and the incidence of peri wound blistering can support the reduction of surgical site infections (SSIs).
Your team can include Mepilex Surgical dressings in your customised Mölnlycke procedure trays – for even more efficiency gains.
