Pressure injuries from medical devices are common and can cause significant morbidity in patients of all ages1. Use Dermisplus® Prevent underneath the device itself to help reduce the risk of device-related pressure injuries2.
With versatile application, the pads can be used to provide pressure redistribution to many areas of the body including the occiput, between the knees, under the chin or folded for hand contractures.
Ideal for protecting pressure points on digits, or for longer body areas such as the spine.
Dermisplus® Prevent Strips are ideal for use under medical devices to prevent pressure damage. For example, face masks, oxygen masks, nasal specs, tracheostomy tubing and ties, rigid collars.
Designed for the sacral area, this pad can also be used around other awkward body areas such as ankles or shoulders.
Available in two sizes (standard and large), the heel pad can be used long ways across the foot to protect the sole or across the heel to protect the back of the foot. It can also be used to protect elbows.
Pioneering simplicity in pressure injury prevention
With the overall prevalence of pressure injuries standing at 9.3%3 and costs to treat ranging from $21,000 – $152,0004, pressure injuries are serious, costly and yet preventable.
