DermaSaver Arm Protector

DermaSaver Arm Tubes

DermaSavers promote wellbeing by protecting fragile skin from external damage. DermaSaver Skin Protectors are personal protective arm sleeves and leg tubes. DermaSavers do not treat skin injuries, but can help to prevent skin injuries on the arms and legs, cased by minor bumps or interaction with objects in the close proximity (i.e. furniture edges or rough surfaces) during movements associated with activities of daily living.   

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 Arm Protectors are sleeve-like loose tubes worn on the arms. They are soft and comfortable to wear day and night. DermaSaver Arm Protectors are designed to fit loosely on the entire arm – above the elbow, over the elbow and over the forearm.  

  • DermaSaver Arm Protector  (Full Arm Tube)

*DermaSaver Skin Protectors can be purchased VAT Free by chronically ill registered disabled people. 

*Please note: DermaSavers are sold in singles (i.e. one forearm protector per pack).

DermaSaver Arm Protectors protect fragile skin on the arms from damage caused by interaction with external environment, such as shears, friction, rubbing and prolonged pressure.

DermaSaver Arm Protectors are sleeve-like, breathable, comfortable and loose fitting for easy wear night and day. There are 5 sizes available to fit arms of all sizes.

DermaSaver MicroSpring Textile

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 micro filaments 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 micro filaments, 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 86% polyester and 14% 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 arm with the DermaSaver by pulling the tube over the arm like a sleeve.

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.          

DermaSavers provide effective, comfortable and lasting protection to fragile skin. DermaSavers promote wellbeing by protecting fragile skin from damage.
