Mepilex® Border Sacrum all-in-one dressing is the only five-layer foam sacral dressing with proprietary Deep Defense Technology® – proven to prevent pressure ulcers when used in conjunction with other standard prevention protocols.
The design also creates an optimal healing environment for managing moderate- to high-exuding wounds of the sacral area. It effectively absorbs and retains exudate and it balances moisture properly avoiding the risk of maceration.
This recently-launched enhanced design includes new handling tabs and thicker borders allowing easier application and patient checking. When used for pressure ulcer prevention, the sacral shape has been refined so you can achieve good coverage of the high-risk sacral area – and it features an improved gluteal seal for maximum protection.
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 – you can remove it easily without damaging the skin . That means less pain for your patients .
