Here's why nurses, therapists and caregivers are generally dissatisfied with traditional skin protection products: THEY JUST DON'T WORK!
To address these issues we have invented DermaSaver™, a complete line of skin protection and pressure reducing products. By creative application of MicroSpring™ textiles we have created something that has never existed before: a surface that relieves all of the factors leading to pressure sores and skin tears: pressure, shear, friction, and moisture entrapment. The compression resistive force of DermaSaver's MicroSpring Textile closely matches that of soft tissue, making DermaSaver like a soft protective extra skin layer.
Each layer of MicroSpring Textile has 4000 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 abrasions that cause skin tears.
All layers of DermaSaver products are protected by the Aegis Microbe shield which uses an EPA registered antimicrobial technology to inhibit the growth of micro-organisms on the product. It is permanently bonded to the fibers, does not leach, or volatize.
You can use creams and ointments with DermaSaver products.
All DermaSaver products can be completely washed and dried even in high temperature institution laundries. DermaSaver MicroSpring Textile is 94% Polyester, 6 % Spandex and meets the CA-117 flame retardant standard.
The unique, patent pending constructions of DermaSaver products were developed by Ed Goodwin, founder and inventor of HipSaver hip protectors. DermaSaver products are manufactured exclusively by HipSaver, Inc.
