Wound contact layers – Mepilex® Transfer

Effective and comfortable exudate transfer dressing

To maintain a moist wound environment, Mepilex Transfer allows the exudate to move vertically into a secondary absorbent pad. This way, the risk for maceration is minimised. To further minimise the risk, the Safetac® layer seals around the wound edges, preventing the exudate from leaking onto the surrounding skin. 

Minimises pain and trauma at dressing changes

Transfers exudate away from the wound, thereby minimising the risk of maceration

Convenient and conformable for difficult-to-dress wounds, can be cut to suit various wound shapes

Promotes patient comfort; thin and comfortable to wear

When to use Mepilex Transfer

Mepilex Transfer is designed for a wide range of exuding wounds such as fungating tumours, epidermolysis Bullosa (EB), donor sites, and venous leg ulcers. Mepilex Transfer allows the exudate to move into a secondary absorbent pad as Mesorb or Mextra Superabsorbent. The Safetac layer seals around the wound edges, preventing the exudate to leak onto the surrounding skin, thus minimises the risk for maceration. It also ensures less damage to the wound and skin at dressing changes. Mepilex Transfer can be cut to suit various wound shapes and locations. Safetac is a patented adhesive technology that minimises pain to patients and trauma to wounds.

 

Use Mepilex Transfer

  • For medium- to high exuding wounds
  • For fungating tumours, epidermolysis Bullosa (EB), donor sites or venous leg ulcers
  • As a protective layer on non-exuding wounds and/or large areas with fragile skin
  • To provide less painful dressing changes for your patients
