Multipurpose all-in-one foam dressing
Mepilex Border Comfort
All-in-one dressing that stays on and uniquely conforms
Mepilex® Border Comfort combines innovative Flex Technology with our proven Safetac® technology to create a dressing that stays on and is still gentle.
Designed to conform and stay on
Our proprietary Flex Technology creates greater conformability, and a dressing that is more flexible than comparable bordered foam dressings 1 . A dressing that moves with the patient and stays on even in the shower 2 . Gives more time back to nurses to focus on care, not unscheduled dressing changes.
Smart exudate management
The 5-layer dressing absorbs, channels and traps exudate and allows you to track exudate progress. Keeping exudate away from the wound bed, and preventing re-entry, even under compression 3 .It has better exudate handling capacity than comparable dressings and can handle both normal and viscous exudate 4 5 .
Reduced pain and trauma
