DermaSaver™ offers breathability, moisture transfer and anti-microbial protection not possible with gels, foams, fleece or cotton sleeve AND reduces ALL of the conditions that cause skin breakdown.
Each layer of MicroSpring Textile has 4,000 microfilaments per square inch to act as mini pressure reducing springs. Microfilaments flex to reduce pressure on bony prominences and cushion fragile skin from bumps and abraisions that cause skin tears.
DermaSaver products features:
Superior pressure and shear reduction
Breathablilty – fabric and filament layers allow air flow
Allows for moisture transfer
Totally launderable even in high temperature laundries – allows for multi-patient use
Durability – will not flatten out or become flaky.
Anti-microbial – protected by the ÆGis Microbe Shield which inhibits the growth of
micro-organisms on the product
Stretchy knit (not woven) fabric has “give” to reduce surface friction
Protects the elbow:
Four layers of soft, lightweight MicroSpring Textile™ form a loose-fitting tube that stays in place to protect fragile skin from pressure, friction and minor traumas that result in tears, bruising and minor abrasions. Unlike traditional fabric sleeves that are tight and binding, the layers of microfilaments allow air-flow and moisture transfer.
Simply slip the tube over the elbow there are no hook and loop fasteners or tight fitting spandex. Unique tapered construction holds the tube in place. The cross microfilaments in the MicroSpring Textile allows these soft tubes to be self-supporting – they won’t slip down or bunch up.
