Nothing like it has ever existed before!
Two layers of soft, lightweight MicroSpring Textile™ with 8000 microfilaments per square inch 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. The layers of microfilaments allow air-flow and moisture transfer.
Simply slip the tube over the arm or leg, there are no hook and loop fasteners or tight fitting Spandex. The narrower end of the tube gently rests on the ankle or wrist to keep it from falling off. The cross microfilaments in the MicroSpring Textile allow these soft tubes to be self-supporting - they won't slip down or bunch up. And unlike traditional fabric sleeves and stockings, which are tight and binding, DermaSaver SkinTubes are designed to fit loosely.
SkinTubes are protected by the Aegis Microbe shield which uses an EPA registered antimicrobial technology to inhibit the growth of micro-organisms on the product.
You can use creams and ointments with SkinTubes. All SkinTubes can be completely washed and dried even in high temperature institution laundries.
SkinTubes are also available with double protection for elbows and knees (4 layers of MicroSpring Textile with 16,000 microfilaments per square inch).
