Mepilex® Border Flex - Oval
All-in-one dressing that stays on and uniquely conforms
A unique combination of Flex Technology and Safetac®
Mepilex® Border Flex with proprietary Flex Technology is an all-in-one wound dressing with improved conformability and stays in place - even in motion! It manages exudate containing bacteria, trapping it in a more effective way. It is designed to treat a wide range of exuding chronic and acute wounds 1 such as diabetic foot ulcers, venous leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, skin tears, and traumatic wounds.
Proprietary Flex Technology enables 360-degree stretch, thanks to patent-pending Y-cuts in its retention and spreading layers. It conforms to the body – even difficult-to-dress locations – and stays where needed for longer, compared to other dressings 2 3 4 .
When to use Mepilex Border Flex
You can use Mepilex Border Flex for a wide range of exuding wounds such as pressure ulcers, leg and foot ulcers, and traumatic wounds such as skin tears and surgical wounds. Plus it can be used on dry and or necrotic wounds in combination with gels.
