- Waterproof film
- Simple, effective application technique

OPSITE FLEXIGRID has set the standard in moist wound healing by retaining the natural wound exudate. OPSITE FLEXIGRID provides a high moisture vapor permeability allows excess exudate to evaporate, helping prevent skin maceration.
Superior film with acrylic adhesive
The OPSITE FLEXIGRID film is highly extensible and conformable, which combined with its high moisture vapour permeability, means the dressing can be left in place for up to 7 days. This minimises interference at the wound site and reduces the amount of nursing time required.
OPSITE FLEXIGRID is resistant to water and body fluids, allowing the patient to bathe without changing dressings. It also aids in the prevention of bacterial contamination.
Simple, effective application technique
OPSITE FLEXIGRID provides a simple and effective application system. The flexible carrier enables single handed application allowing the dressing to conform to the contours of the body. Its transparency enables accurate positioning over the wound site.
Adaptable to Awkward Areas
OPSITE FLEXIGRID has been designed to be adaptable for use on all areas of the body. It can be easily cut into strips or shapes for application to awkward areas such as heels, elbows and knees.
Unique Wound Management Grid
OPSITE FLEXIGRID incorporates a unique wound measurement device which allows simple but accurate assessments of the healing process to be made. After tracing the edges of the wound, the Flexigrid carrier can be removed and stored in the patient's notes.
