MAKE THE CHANGE TODAY
A History of Innovation
The Comfort Family:
Health care professionals have trusted the proven all-in-one foam dressing Mepilex® Border for years. The New Mepilex® Border Comfort Family is an evolution of this, thanks to is unique combination of Flex Technology and Safetac®. It is designed to conform and stay on, aiming to give time back to nurses, realise cost saving for managers and improve quality of life for patients.1 2
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
EFFICIENT WOUND HEALING WITHOUT COMPROMISE
Introducing proprietary Flex Technology
This cutting-edge Flex 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 1 2 and it is better at handling exudate than comparable dressings. 3
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. 6 Backing ﬁlm prevents entry of external bacteria. 7
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. 4 5
Tracks exudate without dressing removal:
The Exudate Progress Monitor allows the spread of exudate to be objectively assessed and recorded, without disturbing the wound. 8
