When to use Mepilex Border Flex Ovel Dressing?

Mepilex Border Flex oval dressing can be used for the following:

Mepilex Safetac Technology

Safetac technology allows the Mepilex Border Flex foam dressing to gently adhere to the skin without adhering to the moist wound bed. This minimizes damage to the wound bed and intact, surrounding skin. Safetac technology provides trauma-free removal, protecting the newly formed tissue and the patient from unnecessary pain at dressing changes. It also prevents exudate from leaking onto the surrounding skin by sealing the wound margins, thus reducing the risk of maceration. All this results in optimized conditions for wound healing.
