DermaSaver Oxygen Tube Covers are made from single layer of MicroSpring textile that cushions the skin from repeated rubbing by the oxygen tubes or feeding tubes. Please note that the Oxygen Tube Covers are also suitable for use as Feeding Tube Covers.
The covers cover the oxygen or feeding tubes, reducing friction and abrasions inflicted by them on the fragile skin. DermaSaver Oxygen Tube Covers are hygienic and durable.
DermaSaver Oxygen Tube Covers are supplied in packs of 10 (10 covers each measuring 30 x 70 mm). Suitable for use with oxygen tubes or feeding tubes. CE mark Class 1 Medical Device.
*DermaSaver Skin Protectors can be purchased VAT Free by chronically ill registered disabled people.
More about DermaSaver Oxygen Tubes Covers and MicroSpring Textile
DermaSaver Oxygen Tube Covers are made from single layer of breathable medical MicroSpring Textile. DermaSaver Oxygen Tube Covers are designed to alleviate pressure of repeated rubbing on the skin by oxygen tubes or feeding tubes.
DermaSaver Oxygen Tube Cover is soft, comfortable and breathable. It can help to reduce abrasions, friction and external pressure that can be damaging to fragile or compromised skin. The tube cover reduces the rubbing on the skin and improves access of air to the skin through the layer of MicroSpring Textile microfilaments. Sweating and overheating is equally reduced by influx of fresh air flow, leading to constant ventilation reaching the skin.
The MicroSpring Textile fabric is permanently anti-microbial and does not support bacterial growth.
Fabric composition: 94% polyester and 6% spandex. Latex free.
DermaSavers are Class 1 Medical Devices.
MicroSpring textile is cosy to touch, self-supporting, stretchy and naturally springy with thousands of microfilaments per each square cm sandwiched between 2 outer layers of soft breathable fabric. The air is captured 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.
MicroSpring textile fibre composition is 94% polyester and 6% spandex. There is no latex component in the MicroSpring fabric.
