BARRIER Flex surgical drapes

BARRIER Flex drapes with stretchable adhesive edge

The BARRIER® Flex surgical drapes from Mölnlycke Health Care have a transparent adhesive edge that is stretchable and conformable. This facilitates draping contours of the body; for example the head, neck and breast. The BARRIER Flex range consists of universal and speciality sets, and also of all-in-one and single-packed drapes. All these drapes can be incorporated into ProcedurePak® trays. To learn more about BARRIER Flex and to see the full range, please download a short-version brochure or a full-version brochure.
