Smith & Nephew Opsite Flexigrid Transparent Adhesive Film Dressing is a transparent, adhesive film, with a unique wound measurement grid. It is widely used to provide a moist wound healing environment for superficial wounds and is also ideal for use as a secondary dressing. The film is moisture vapor permeable, conformable and extensible. High moisture vapor permeability allows excess exudate to evaporate, helping prevent skin maceration.
