Pressure Reduction For Fragile Skin
DermaSavers protect fragile skin from sustaining damage caused by friction, rubbing, abrasion and and pressure that could lead to skin breakdowns, tears and splits. DermaSavers can also help to heal existing skin tears, splits and lacerations without the restriction of bandages and dressings.
Each layer of MicroSpring Textile has 4000 microfilaments per square inch to act as mini pressure reducing springs. Microfilaments flex to reduce pressure on bony prominences and cushion fragile skin from bumps and abrasions that cause skin tears.
This revolutionary multi-layered textile offers breathability, moisture transfer and anti-microbial protection not possible with foams, gels or fleece. Up to 20,000 microfilaments per square inch act as mini springs which flex to reduce pressure on bony prominences such as heel, elbow, vertebra and trochanter. This unique fabric construction allows for a loose-fiting, non constricting, flexible sleeve which holds its shape. DermaSaver skin tubes won’t bunch up or slip down.
DermaSavers are protected with Aegis Microbe Shield permanently bonded to the fibres. Aegis Microbial Shield prevents bacterial and microbial growth. It is a permanent protection that does not fade, wash out or leach and lasts permanently for the duration of the DermaSaver protector’s life.
