DermaSaver Breathable Skin Protectors
DermaSaver Skin Protectors Protect Thin and Fragile Skin from External Damage
DermaSavers are unique patented skin protectors for people with fragile skin. DermaSaver skin protectors protect fragile skin from damage caused by friction, rubbing, abrasion caused by interaction with close environment and external pressure that can lead to skin breakdowns, lacerations, irritation, erosions, tears, splits and superficial bruising.
DermaSaver Skin Protectors are fully compatible with topical creams and ointments. And because DermaSavers are made from breathable fabric and allow air circulation and constant ventilation to reach the skin surface, the DermaSavers protect the skin without stopping the air reaching the surface of the skin. Effective moisture wicking (i.e. moisture transferring) properties of the MicroSpring fabric ensure that the skin remains dry and cool at all times.
DermaSaver Skin Protectors are perfect for the elderly and disabled people, protecting their fragile and vulnerable skin from painful skin damage. DermaSavers Skin Protectors do not treat damaged skin, they simply protect the skin from external mechanical damage. DermaSavers are personal protective arm sleeves and leg tubes for everyday use by elderly people and others prone to sustain frequent skin damage caused by minor touches or bumps or simply by an interaction with environment, such as furniture edges and rough surfaces.
DermaSavers are made by the HipSaver Inc in the USA. Win Health Medical Ltd. is the exclusive distributor of the DermaSavers Skin Protectors in the United Kingdom. You can purchase DermaSavers online or by phone.
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 Skin Protectors background
DermaSaver skin protectors are made from breathable medical textile called the MicroSpring Textile that has been developed to replace other materials used for skin protection, such as foams, gels, bandages and fleece. The MicroSpring textile is a very special fabric. It is soft and springy with thousands of micro filaments per square cm. It is breathable with ample ventilation reaching the skin due to free air flow within micro filaments. MicroSpring textile presents superior moisture wicking properties that enable speedy transfer of moisture away from the skin. It is soft and stretchy and will not flatten or crumble. It is washable at 95 degrees C (hot wash) and can be tumble dried at high temperature. The MicroSpring textile fibre composition is 86% polyester and 14% spandex.
DermaSaver Skin Protectors are fully compatible with topical creams and ointments. And because DermaSavers are made from breathable fabric and allow air circulation and constant ventilation, DermaSavers protect the skin by sheltering the skin from external environment, such as furniture surfaces or edges. Effective moisture wicking (i.e. moisture transferring) properties of the MicroSpring fabric ensure that the skin remains dry and cool at all times.
Body worn DermaSavers - i.e. leg protectors, arm protectors - protect fragile skin from sustaining damage caused by interaction with external environment. Wearing DermaSavers can protect exposed fragile and thin skin from damage, such as tears, lacerations, shears and other damage caused by interaction with external objects, and from external pressure and shear force. DermaSavers are self-supporting and will always spring back to shape - even after being pressed down or scrunched.
Special mention has to be given to DermaSaver Oxygen and Feeding Tubes Covers that protect the skin from pressure and friction caused by oxygen or feeding tubes.
Wearable DermaSaver Skin Protectors (i.e. arm protectors, leg protectors) are garment-like (sleeve-like) tubes that can be worn at all times, as or when required. You can wear DermaSavers day and night - in bed or in wheelchair and when walking. There are DermaSavers for arm and forearm protection and DermaSavers for leg and shin protection.
DermaSaver MicroSpring textile fibre composition is 86% polyester and 14% spandex. There is no latex component in the MicroSpring fabric.
