Dermis Macmed Strip 1M Soft (10559)
- Approved-by - DVA
- Brand - MacMed
- Risk - Medium to High Risk
Dermis Plus Gel Pads and Dermis Plus Gel Strips are recommended for pressure off-loading in patients that are medium to high risk of developing compromised skin integrity issues such as pressure ulcers, skin tears or calluses due to unrelieved pressure, shear and friction.
Utilised for the preservation of skin integrity on difficult to wrap extremities (such as breasts, ears, elbows, between skin folds and toes) or with prosthetic and orthopedic devices, the Dermis Plus pressure pad conforms to bony prominences giving superb comfort and relief and greatly reducing shock and friction to the skin.
Fully washable and re-usable, hypoallergenic and odourless, the Dermis Plus contains a cross-linked three-dimensional polymer gel network infused with medical grade mineral oil that enables it to return to its original form as well as softening, moisturising and lubricating the skin.
- Two dimensions available – 3mm or 12mm, which may then be cut to size
