Mepilex® Border Lite is a thin all-in-one foam dressing for low-exuding wounds. You can use it for chronic wounds and acute healing wounds such as traumatic wounds.

The low-profile design is conformable  1  2, making it a suitable wound dressing for difficult-to-dress areas such as the feet. Patients can wear it in the shower 3.

The design includes Safetac® which is clinically demonstrated to minimise damage to the wound and skin at removal  4  5  . By sealing the wound margins, dressings with Safetac help prevent maceration  6. With less damage to the wound and skin, pain at dressing change is minimised  4  5.

  • Thin and conformable to dress wounds on feet and toes, hands and fingers 1  2
  • Dressings with Safetac minimise pain and damage at dressing changes 4  6
