DermaSaver Protective Wheelchair Pad
DermaSavers promote wellbeing by protecting fragile skin from 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 Wheelchair Pad is a flat pad made from layers of MicroSpring textile. DermaSaver Wheelchair Pad has been designed to help people sitting in wheelchairs (and other chairs) for long period of time. DermaSaver Wheelchair Pad allows the skin areas exposed to prolonged contact with chair seats or back rests to breathe by facilitating the air flow and ventilation. Air flow and ventilation reduce accumulation of excessive moisture on the skin and enhance healing, contributing to comfortable and healthy skin. DermaSaver Wheelchair Pad is fully washable, hygienic and durable.
DermaSaver Wheelchair Pad is supplied as a single item. The pad measures 45 x 45 cm. It is fully washable. Suitable for protection during sitting (i.e. over the seat) or on the back rest. CE mark Class 1 Medical Device.
*DermaSaver Skin Protectors can be purchased VAT Free by chronically ill registered disabled people.
More about DermaSaver Wheelchair Pad and MicroSpring Textile

DermaSaver Wheelchair Pad is soft, comfortable and breathable. It can help to reduce abrasions and external pressure applied to fragile or compromised skin. The pad improves access of air to the skin through the layers of MicroSpring Textile microfilaments. Sweating and overheating is also reduced by the air flow and constant ventilation reaching the skin.

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.
MicroSpring Textile is permanently anti-bacterial and does not support growth of bacteria.
DermaSaver Wheelchair Pad is compatible with medicated ointments, creams or lotions.
DermaSaver Wheelchair Pad is 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, DermaSaver Wheelchair Pad can be air dried, if speed is not crucial.
