When to use Mepilex Border Heel


Mepilex® Border Heel is specifically designed to fit the heel. The five-layer absorbent foam structure effectively manages exudate and the wound environment. So you can use it in the treatment of exuding wounds such as pressure injuries, diabetic foot ulcers, heel ulcers, traumatic wounds, and other secondary healing wounds.

Pressure injury prevention

Mepilex Border Heel has been proven to prevent pressure injuries . You can apply the dressings prophylactically for at-risk patients , such as the immobile, those with poor skin perfusion and impaired skin condition, in emergency rooms, in intensive care, or before and during long surgical interventions. Scientific studies have demonstrated that Mepilex Border Heel has the ability to impact four extrinsic factors that can contribute to developing pressure injuries: by minimising and redistributing shear, redistributing pressure, reducing friction and maintaining an optimal microclimate .

Note: using dressings as a prophylactic therapy does not replace the need a comprehensive pressure injury prevention protocol.
