Molnlycke Mepilex Border Flex All-in-One Dressing combines cutting-edge Flex technology with tried-and-true Safetac technology to create a gentle, long-lasting, and unobtrusive exudate management dressing. Patients can shower while their dressing remains in place for up to 7 days thanks to the water-resistant layer. Border Flex is a 5-layer dressing that absorbs, channels, and traps exudate, allowing healthcare professionals to monitor exudate progression without removing the dressing. To reduce the risk of maceration, the patented Safetac technology seals the wound edges, preventing the exudate from leaking onto the surrounding skin.

  • Conforming flex technology
  • Rapid absorption without swelling
  • Exudate channelled to increase breathability
  • Traps bacteria away from the wound

  • If you see signs of infection e.g. fever or the wound or surrounding skin becoming red, warm or swollen, consult a health care professional for appropriate treatment.
