Mölnlycke Launches Mepilex Border Sacrum

Mölnlycke Health Care is launching a new Mepilex dressing, which is specifically shaped to fit the sacral area.

Mepilex Border Sacrum features all the benefits of the Mepilex range of wound dressings and is the ideal shape to fit comfortably and securely on wounds in the sacral area.  The dressing’s breathable film backing helps the dressing stay in place, as friction between it and clothes or bed linen is low.  In addition, the film protects from outer contamination as it is both viral and bacteria proof. Mepilex Border Sacrum also features an innovative three-step release system for simple ‘hands free’ application. 

The whole Mepilex range benefits from the patented soft silicone adhesive technology, Safetacâ.  Safetacâ technology provides a good seal around the wound bed, which for the sacral area means less risk of both exudate leaking onto the surrounding skin, causing maceration, and urine or faeces reaching the wound, potentially causing infection. In addition, Safetacâ technology minimises trauma to the wound and surrounding skin, thereby minimising pain to the patient at dressing changes.   

Mepilex Border Sacrum will be available in two sizes, 18x18cm and 23x23cm, on prescription, and via hospital supply routes, from July 1 2007.
