Featuring a highly absorbent five-layer design and Safetac® technology, Mepilex® Border Flex Foam Dressings are designed to assist with managing moderate- to high-exudate chronic and acute wounds. 360-degree flexible, adaptable and self-adherent construction further helps with preventing heel and non-sacrum pressure injuries.

How Do Mepilex® Border Flex Foam Dressings Work?

Accommodating a wide range of injuries, Mepilex® Border Flex Foam Dressings pair flexibility with construction designed to absorb, distribute and lock in wound exudate. This combination helps it remain in place while blocking out bacteria and moisture and creating a balanced healing environment.

Each Mepilex® Border Flex dressing is equipped with:

  • Breathable backing film: This feature allows moisture to evaporate from the wound, provides water resistance for shower usage and blocks bacteria and viruses from passing through to the wound bed.
  • Retention layer: This superabsorbent layer traps exudate to prevent leaks and maceration.
  • Polyurethane foam pad: This highly absorbent core further helps manage wound fluid while protecting the surrounding skin.
  • Surrounding layer: Non-woven construction distributes exudate over a wider area. This action reduces leaks and enhances absorption capabilities.
  • Safetac® technology: Integral to Mepilex® dressings, this silicone layer improves contact while lessening pain and reducing skin damage during removal. Safetac® further helps lock in fluid to prevent leaks and allow new tissue to form.
  • Flex technology: 360-degree flexibility allows each Mepilex® Border Flex dressing to adapt to the contours and movements of the patient’s body without detaching during wear.

With these components, each Mepilex® Border Flex Foam Dressing:

  • Quickly draws in normal and viscous exudate without swelling.
  • Diverts the fluid away from the wound, allowing it to spread out over a larger area.
  • Allows moisture vapor from the wound to evaporate.
  • Keeps viruses and bacteria away from the wound bed.
  • Prevents leaks and pain during removal, limiting disturbance to the wound.

Benefits of Mepilex® Border Flex Foam Dressings

Mepilex® Border Flex dressings:

  • Lessen pain and damage to the wound during dressing changes.
  • Do not require a secondary dressing.
  • Can be worn underneath a compression bandage.
  • Allow for more comfortable wear.
  • Can be worn in the shower.
  • Can be used over multiple days.
  • Absorb more exudate than other foam dressings.

Uses for Mepilex® Border Flex Foam Dressings

Alone or in combination with a wound gel, Mepilex® Border Flex Foam Dressings assist with treating a range of moderate- to heavy-exudate wounds, including:

  • Venous leg ulcers
  • Pressure injuries
  • Surgical incisions
  • Traumatic wounds
  • Diabetic foot ulcers
  • Skin tears
