Ankle Bumper

DermaSaver Ankle Bumper

DermaSavers promote wellbeing by protecting fragile skin from damage. DermaSavers are the perfect skin protectors for the elderly people and for disabled people suffering with thin and fragile skin prone to easy damage.   

Please note: Selected models and sizes of the DermaSavers are available from the NHS Supply Chain in England and Wales and the NHS National Services Scotland in Scotland.

DermaSaver Ankle Bumper Protector has been designed to protect fragile skin around the ankle and especially the malleoli, the bony prominences of the ankle. DermaSaver Ankle Bumper Protector has been designed with user comfort and effective protection of the ankle malleoli in mind. DermaSaver Ankle Bumper does not turn, slide or slip off during use. 

DermaSaver Ankle Bumper Protector is perfect for people, who suffer with painful problems around the ankle joint, such as sensitive skin, bruising and painful erosions. Three layers of MicroSpring Textile form the soft and breathable cushioning of the ankle bones and the skin around.

Layers of soft and lightweight MicroSpring Textile used in making of the Ankle Bumper, protect the ankle from pressure, friction and minor bumps that lead to bruising, tears in the skin and abrasions. The microfilaments in the textile allow access of air to the skin, whilst wicking the moisture away from the skin, keeping skin comfortable, dry and protected. 

DermaSaver Ankle Bumper information

To establish required DermaSaver Ankle Bumper Protector you need to measure the circumference around the widest part of the ankle (i.e. around malleoli). For borderline measurements, choose the larger size for extra comfort.

Fabric composition: 94% polyester and 6% spandex. Latex free.

DermaSavers are Class 1 Medical Devices. 

DermaSaver MicroSpring Textile background information

DermaSavers are made from breathable medical MicroSpring textile that replaces foam, gel and fleece. MicroSpring textile is cosy to touch, self-supporting, stretchy and naturally springy with thousands of microfilaments between 2 outer layers of soft breathable fabric per each square cm. The air is captured between the fabric layers and flows easily around the microfilaments, reaching the skin through the breathable fabric for constant soothing air ventilation.

Additionally, the MicroSpring textile has superior moisture wicking properties that facilitate fast transfer of moisture away from the skin, ensuring comfort and dryness that supports healing.  

MicroSpring textile fibre composition is 94% polyester and 6% spandex. There is no latex component in the MicroSpring fabric.

DermaSavers are compatible with medicated ointments, creams or lotions. Simply spread the preparation on the skin as needed, allow a short time for absorption to take place and then dress the leg with the DermaSaver Ankle Bumper..

DermaSavers are fully machine washable at up to 95°C and can be air dried or tumble dried at high temperature for speed and convenience. The fabric will not crumble, crust or lose its integrity due to washing and tumble drying. Alternatively, DermaSavers can be air dried, if speed is not crucial. DermaSavers must not be dried on hot radiators.      

Please note that DermaSaver Heel Protectors are sold in singles (i.e. one protector only).

DermaSavers provide effective, comfortable and lasting protection to fragile skin.
