Mepilex Border Flex
All-in-one dressing that stays on and uniquely conforms
Our next generation of flexible dressings are designed to stay on and uniquely conform aiming to give time back to nurses, cost savings back to managers and quality of life back to patients.
Designed to conform and stay on
Mepilex® Border Flex has greater conformability compared to other bordered foam dressings tested due to unique Flex Technology. A dressing that moves with the patient and stays on even in the shower .
Smart exudate management
The 5-layer dressing absorbs, channels and traps exudate and allows you to track exudate progress. Keeping exudate away from the wound bed, and preventing re-entry, even under compression. It has up to 2.2 times greater exudate handling compared to other tested bordered foam dressings and can handle both normal and viscous exudate.
Reduced pain and damage
Our proven Safetac® technology means less pain and damage during dressing changes, and reduced risk of maceration than traditional (adhesive) dressings.
