Description

Mepilex Border Flex 7.5cm x 7.5cm Dressing 10 Pack

All-in-one dressing that is designed to stay on and uniquely conform

Our next generation of flexible dressings are designed to stay on and uniquely conform; giving time back to nurses, cost savings back to managers and quality  of life back to patients 1  2 .

Designed to conform and stay on

Our proprietary Flex Technology creates great conformability, and a dressing that is more flexible than compared bordered foam dressings  3 . A dressing that moves with the patient and stays on even in the shower  4 . Gives more time back to nurses to focus on care, not unscheduled dressing changes.

Smart exudate management

The five-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  5 . It has better exudate handling capacity than compared bordered foam dressings and can handle both normal and viscous exudate  6  7 .

Reduced pain and trauma

Our proven Safetac® technology means less pain 8  and trauma  8 during dressing changes, and reduced risk of maceration than traditional (adhesive) dressings  9  10 .

Areas of use

You can use Mepilex® Border Flex to treat a wide range of exuding chronic and acute wounds such as diabetic foot ulcers, venous leg ulcers, pressure ulcers*, skin tears and traumatic wounds. It may also be used as part of a prophylactic therapy to help prevent skin damage, e.g. pressure ulcers.

Being available in square, oval and rectangular shapes, it can be used on a wide range of wounds and considered as your ‘go to’ all-in-one dressing.

Easy application

Our proprietary three-part release liner makes it easy to apply Mepilex Border Flex**    11  . So you can place your dressings accurately and securely – avoiding wrinkles, rolled edges and re-applications. Which could save time and reduce waste, too.

  • Flex Technology provides excellent flexibility  3   and conformability to avoid early detachment  12   
  • Proven to handle more exudate*** than other all-in-one foam dressings 6    

  • The Exudate Progress Monitor allows the spread of exudate  to be objectively assessed and recorded, without disturbing  the wound  13  

  • For use on a wide range of exuding chronic and acute wounds   

*Where a repositioning or offloading protocol is used
**Available in 15 x 15cm and 15 x 20cm

***In vitro studies

    Wonderfully effective; healed a de-roofed blister very quickly and painlessly. Great to be able to shower with waterproof dressing that can be left on for days.

    These bandaids can be left on for say 5 days which gives the sore, skin tear time to heal. Very good for xx thin skin, those who are on chemo and skin tears and doesn’t heal well..

    Bought 2 sizes and am very happy with both. I have a long term issue with troublesome boils and these dressings are extremely easy to apply, stay secure and provide the waterproof protection which is so useful.
