Grouped Product Description : Mepilex Border Flex with proprietary Flex Technology is an all-in-one wound dressing with improved conformability and stay-on-ability. 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 such as diabetic foot ulcers, venous leg ulcers, pressure injuries, skin tears, and traumatic wounds.
Features & Benefits:
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.
With over 40% more superabsorbent fibres than Mepilex® Border, the retention layer manages both normal and viscous exudate while locking fluid away so the dressing can continue to work. Fluid handling capacity tests prove that Mepilex Border Flex outperforms other all-in-one dressings by as much as 125%.
The highly breathable backing film features the new Exudate Progress Monitor – a dot pattern that allows you to easily track and record fluid as it spreads, without disturbing the wound. These dot counts can be recorded and shared between nurse visits or shifts, potentially avoiding excess dressing changes.
All combined, the five-layer construction is designed to absorb, channel, and trap exudate containing bacteria away from the wound bed and prevent re-entry, even under compression.
