Mepitel® One is a gentle one-sided wound contact layer with Safetac® – the original atraumatic contact layer proven to minimise patient pain at dressing changes. We designed it to mould softly to skin without sticking to the moist wound – so you can remove it easily without damaging the skin. That means less pain for your patients.
Safetac also protects new tissue and intact skin – so wounds remain undisturbed to support faster natural healing. Plus, Safetac seals the wound margins to protect skin from damaging leaks and maceration.
Mepitel One has a perforated design that lets exudate pass through to a secondary absorbent dressing. It enables easy delivery of topical treatments and it allows secondary dressing changes without disturbing healing.
Mepitel One is adhesive on one side, so it’s easier for you to handle. Plus it’s transparent, so you can instantly assess healing progress without removing the contact layer.

When to use Mepitel One
Mepitel One is a wound contact layer designed for the management of a wide range of exuding wounds such as painful wounds, skin tears, skin abrasions, surgical incisions, partial thickness burns, traumatic wounds, blistering, lacerations, partial and full thickness grafts, leg and foot ulcers. It can also be used as a protective layer on non-exuding wounds and on areas with fragile skin.
The open structure of Mepitel One allows, where clinically indicated, topical ointments to pass through onto the wound.
It can be applied together with Mesorb®; or for high-exuding wounds with Mextra® Superabsorbent; with Tubifast® fixation or under compression bandages. Mepitel One can also be used in conjunction with Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT).
