When to use Mepilex Heel
Mepilex Heel is an absorbent heel dressing – designed for a wide range of low to medium exuding wounds. Whether applied to the heel or malleolus, Mepilex Heel effectively absorbs, which minimises the risk of maceration . With its Safetac® interface, Mepilex Heel can be removed with minimal risk of trauma to the wound or surrounding skin. Safetac also prevents Mepilex Heel from sticking to the wound bed yet adheres gently to the surrounding skin allowing easy application of secondary fixation. When necessary, secure Mepilex Heel with Tubifast® fixation.
