  • Soft breathable cover
  • Highly absorbent pad
  • Low allergy adhesive
  • Conformable pad and cover


Highly absorbent and low-adherent pad

The polyester wound contact layer enables the passage of blood or exudate into the highly absorbent pad while maintaining a good healing environment and minimal pain on dressing removal.

Safe and secure fixation

The low allergy acrylic adhesive is evenly spread onto the non-woven backing surface providing a safe and secure dressing fixation over the wound site.

Soft and conformable

Ensures patient comfort and conformability to all wound sites (even the more difficult areas like shoulders and axillae).

Ease of use

The protector paper, which is slit across the width of the dressing, enables quick application without the risk of touching the absorbent pad or adhesive area with fingers or forceps. The easily opened packaging facilitates aseptic dressing technique.

Patient comfort

The thick pad minimizes fluid strike-through and helps to protect the wound from trauma.


OPSITEâ—Š FLEXIGRIDâ—Š may be used on clinically infected wounds if the following precautions are followed:

* The patient should be under medical/clinical supervision
* The dressing should be changed daily
* The patient should be receiving suitable systemic treatment.

Immuno-compromised patients and diabetic patients may require extra supervision. Care should be taken to avoid skin damage by repeated applications on patients with thin or fragile skin.

In common with all adhesive products, some cases of irritation and/or maceration of the skin surrounding the wound have been reported. It should be noted that inappropriate use or too frequent dressing changes, particularly in patients with fragile skin, can result in skin stripping.
