As a patient’s wound heals, the levels of exudate rise and fall, and so do the demands from the dressing. When dealing with a smaller, less exuding wound or a wound located on a challenging contour, a lite dressing could be a perfect fit. New Mepilex® Border Comfort Lite introduces Flex Technology into bordered foam lite dressings, allowing the dressing to stay on and uniquely conform.
Mepilex® Border Comfort family now has you covered for all stages of wound healing.
It's time for change
Smart Exudate Management
360° Flex Technology
EFFICIENT WOUND HEALING WITHOUT COMPROMISE
Introducing proprietary Flex Technology
We’re always working to deliver innovative solutions, and cutting-edge Flex Technology is the latest among them. This proprietary technology enables the 360° stretch in Mepilex Border Comfort, thanks to patent-pending Y-cuts in the retention and spreading layers.
Unique Flex Technology = 360o Flexibility
Thanks to Flex Technology, the unique conformability of Mepilex Border Comfort allows it to adapt to the shape and movement of the patient. 3 Reducing pressure on the skin and pull on the borders increases comfort and minimizes the risk of detachment. 6
Effective Dressing Change Management
Smart Exudate Management
Rapid absorption with minimal swelling:
The foam layer allows rapid absorption of both normal and viscous exudate and it is better at handling exudate than comparable dressings.
Maximises capacity by channelling exudate:
Exudate is channelled away from the wound and over a wider area to increase moisture vapour loss and reduce swelling.
Traps bacteria away from the wound:*
The superabsorbent ﬁbres in the retention layer prevent exudate containing bacteria from re-entering the wound bed, even under compression. Backing ﬁlm prevents entry of external bacteria.
Tracks exudate without dressing removal:
The Exudate Progress Monitor allows the spread of exudate to be objectively assessed and recorded, without disturbing the wound.
