Designed especially for people in wheelchairs, the Shin-Knee Tube protects both the shin and the knee with 2 layers of Microspring textile. The pleated contoured cup stays in position on the knee. Recommended for non-ambulatory residents only.
Two 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, which are tight and binding, the layers of microfilaments allow air-flow and moisture transfer. Simply slip the tube over the leg, there are no hook and loop fasteners or tight fitting spandex. The narrower end of the tube gently rests on the ankle to keep it from falling off. The cross microfilaments in the MicroSpring Textile allows these soft tubes to be self-supporting - they wont slip down or bunch up.
- Product fits right and stays positioned on the desired area.
- Smooth fine fiber knit surface yarns to reduce friction and shear
- Soft & cushy product with the same resillance of skin (Indentation load deflection)
- Antimicrobial properties
- Does not adhere to wounds
- Breathable fabric that does not trap moisture
- Totally launderable
Microfilaments flex to reduce pressure on bony prominences such as the heel, elbow, vertebra and trochanter and to protect arms and legs from bumps and other traumas that cause skin tears and bruises. DermaSaver SkinTubes are made of two layers of MicroSpring Textile using 8000 microfilaments per square inch to act as mini pressure reducing springs. DermaSaver pressure reduction products have up to 20 thousand microfilaments per square inch.
