Mepilex® Lite

Mepilex® Lite is a unique, customizable, absorbent dressing featuring Safetac® technology. Mepilex® Lite is preferred by nurses and patients because the proprietary Safetac® adhesive is designed to make dressing changes pain free.

Mepilex® Lite can be cut using clean scissors to fit your specific wound’s shape and size. The absorbent foam in Mepilex® Lite is superior to a gauze dressing because it can absorb and retain more drainage. This is important because leaking drainage can actually damage the skin around the wound.
