  1. DermaSaver Knee Protector
  2. DermaSaver Double Knee Protector

DermaSaver Knee Protectors protect fragile skin on the knees from external damage caused by interaction with external environment, such as shears, friction, rubbing and prolonged pressure. Soft and non-constricting, DermaSaver Knee Protectors protect the skin from damage as well as help to heal existing problems by sheltering the problem area from further damage during healing process and increasing ventilation by comparison with standard dressings.

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

*Please note: DermaSaver Shin Protectors are sold as singles (i.e. shin protector per pack). 

DermaSaver Knee Protectors are sleeve-like, breathable, comfortable and loose fitting for easy wear night and day. There are 5 sizes available to fit knees on the legs of all sizes. Made in practical light beige colour resistant to staining, DermaSavers are compatible with medicated skin preparations and fully machine washable for hygiene and convenience.

DermaSaver Knee Protectors are perfect skin protectors for people with fragile and thin skin, such as frail elderly and disabled people.   

DermaSaver Double Knee Protector has extra layers of MicroSpring textile at the knee to provide extra cushioning and increased protection to the vulnerable skin. Please note that the DermaSaver Double Knee Protector is recommended only for people with very low mobility or entirely bed or chair bound, because the extra weight of the MicroSpring Textile at the knee could pull the knee tube down during walking.

DermaSavers are Class 1 Medical Devices.  

DermaSaver Micr​oSpring 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 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 is permanently anti-bacterial and does not support growth of bacteria.

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 knee with the DermaSaver by pulling the tube over the leg up to the knee 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.
