Molnlycke Mepilex Flex-Foam Dressing is a five-layer bordered foam wound dressing with exceptional conformability and a longer wear time. It also has better exudate management, which means fewer dressing changes. It has a longer wear time and requires fewer dressing changes to lower the risk of wound disruption, as well as dressing expense and waste.

Benefits of Molnlycke Mepilex Border Flex Foam Dressing

  • Innovative Flex Technology in the spreading and retention layers allows Mepilex Border Flex to move in every direction reducing skin stress, increasing comfort and keeping it in place
  • Smart exudate management
  • The 5-layer dressing absorbs, channels, and traps exudate and also allows you to track progress
  • Mepilex border flex also keeps exudate containing bacteria away from the wound bed and minimizes re-entry, even under compression
  • Mepilex dressing reduced pain and trauma during dressing changes
  • Border bandages by mepilex reduced risk of maceration compared to traditional (adhesive) dressings

Features of Molnlycke Mepilex Border Flex Foam Dressing

  • Mepilex Border Flex is proven to handle more fluid than other all-in-one foam dressings
  • Flex technology enables 360° stretch, to mirror body movements and avoid premature detachment, so it can stay on for longer than non-flex dressings
  • Flex technology distributes the load force evenly, patients consider it comfortable
  • Dressing edges are better protected with 18% less load transfer, to reduce the risk of dressing rolling
