The no 1 wound contact layer in the world1 used on more than 100 million wounds.
Mepitel is a gentle, yet effective wound contact layer with the unique Safetac technology. The open mesh design enables good transfer of exudate to a secondary dressing and easy delivery of topical treatments.
Mepitel is clinically proven2 to heal scalds faster and with less pain and cost compared to silver sulfadiazine.
Mepitel with Safetac technology protects the wound and the skin. It prevents an outer dressing from sticking to the wound, therefore minimizes trauma and pain. Mepitel is designed and clinically proven for a wide range of wounds such as skin tears, skin abrasions, surgical incisions, second degree burns, blistering, lacerations, partial and full thickness grafts, diabetic ulcers, venous and arterial ulcers. Use together with e.g. Mesorb or for high exuding wounds with Mextra superabsorbent, and with Tubifast fixation.
14 days of undisturbed cost-effective healing:
Mepitel can be left in place for up to 14 days in order to not stress the wound or newly healed tissue. It will stay in place and not dry out which can cause trauma and pain. The wound can be inspected at any time thanks to Mepitels transparency. Mepitel promotes undisturbed wound healing as well as a cost-effective treatment.
