Mepitel is a wound contact layer.
INTENDED USES: Protects the wound and the skin. It’s designed and clinically proven for use in treating a wide range of wounds such as skin tears, skin abrasions, sutured wounds, partial thickness burns, lacerations, partial and full thickness grafts, diabetic ulcers, venous and arterial ulcers. Mepitel can also be used as a protective layer on non-exuding wounds, blisters, fragile skin and exposed fragile tissues.
CLAIMED FEATURES: It is a gentle two-sided wound contact layer with Safetac® – the original less-pain contact layer with silicone adhesion. It's designed to mould softly to skin without sticking to the moist wound so it can be removed easily without damaging the skin, that means less pain for the patients. Clinically proven to heal scalds faster and with less pain and cost, compared to silver sulfadiazine. Doesn’t leave residues and maintains functional qualities over time. Good transparency, so you can assess healing progress without removing the contact layer.
