The Mepilex Border Dressing is an unparalleled dressing designed to provide complete protection to the wound and enhance the speed of recovery. The dressing is ideal for both chronic and acute wounds with heavy to moderate fluid discharges. Wounds like pressure ulcers or ulcers on the foot or leg, malignant wounds, thickness burns, or surgical wounds can be effectively protected and treated with the dressing.
The Molnlycke Border is an ergonomic multi-layered dressing with Safetac technology that provides self adhesion. This technology seals the edges of the wounds well and only sticks to the dry skin around it. It also minimizes the pain incurred to the wound while removing it and hence feels painless when redressing.
The polyurethane backing film makes the dressing moisture-proof and also acts as a barrier keeping external harmful bacteria and viruses outside. The film, however, is permeable to moisture vapor and hence allows the wound to breathe. The multi-layered foam pad below the film is the absorbent layer that keeps the wound dry. It absorbs all fluids discharging from the wound. A nonwoven layer spreads and retains the absorbed fluid to ensure that there is enough room to absorb more discharge. The Molnlycke Mepilex Border is sterilized for use and can be effectively used to heal wounds for a number of days. It is available in different sizes to accommodate for the size of the wound it is used to dress.
