  • Mepilex® Border Flex and Exufiber® Ag+
    Advanced foam dressing and gelling fiber for wound management...

  • Mepilex Border Flex was designed to conform and stay on for longer wear time and reduced dressing changes.  By reducing dressing changes, Mepilex Border Flex may support undisturbed wound healing as well as a reduction in cost.1,2  Innovative Flex Technology allows it to move in every direction, reducing skin stress, increasing comfort3-5 and keeping it in place. The five-layer dressing absorbs, channels and traps moderate to heavy exudate and allows you to track progress. It also keeps exudate containing bacteria from the wound bed and minimizes re-entry, even under compression.6

    For wounds with depth or additional exudate management needs, Exufiber Ag+  can be used in combination with Mepilex Border Flex. 

    Exufiber Ag+ dressings with Hydrolock® Technology are unique, next generation gelling fiber dressings made of tightly packed fibers to minimize the free space for fluid or exudate to flow, keeping it locked in. This structure simultaneously increases the integrity of the entire dressing to stay intact, without the need for reinforcing threads to hold it together.  

    Exufiber Ag+ efficiently transfers exudate from the wound bed to the secondary dressing,7 while locking in exudate to minimize leakage and reduce the risk for maceration. 8–11, 18 It promotes autolytic debridement,8  locks in exudate and stays intact both during use and at removal. 8-12  The superior exudate lock-in capacity11 provides moist wound healing and supports a clean wound bed, aimed at reducing additional nursing time for wound cleansing. Through the combination of Hydrolock Technology and silver sulfate, Exufiber Ag+ removes wound debris that supports bacteria growth and biofilm reformation. 16,17  It provides antimicrobial effect up to seven days on a broad range of pathogens 13–17.

  • Mepilex® Border Sacrum and Heel
    Proprietary Deep Defense™ technology helps to prevent pressure injuries, but also protects existing pressure injuries from further deterioration....

  • Only Mepilex Border dressings have over 80 evidence pieces to support their effectiveness in preventing pressure ulcers.1   The cost effectiveness of Mepilex Border Sacrum is supported by several clinical studies, including real-world  health economic evidence showing a $77 reduction in per patient treatment costs in a cohort of 1.03m patients. 2 

    When used for management of wounds, Mepilex Border Sacrum effectively absorbs and retains exudate and maintains a moist wound environment for optimal healing. 3, 4  The Safetac® technology layer seals the wound edges, preventing exudate leakage onto the surrounding skin which minimizes the risk of maceration.3 The Safetac technology layer allows the dressing to be changed without damaging the wound or surrounding skin,3 or exposing the patient to additional pain.5
