Skin Protectors | DermaTuff

Supplier: HealthSaver

Thinning skin, fragile skin or weak skin limb protectors.


A slight bump against a low table, a stumble on the staircase, an over-enthusiastic dog can cause the most horrendous leg injury requiring an ambulance call out, a visit to the surgery or hospital and take weeks to heal. Untreated a leg ulcer can rapidly develop.

The root cause is 'thinning skin', 'fragile skin' or 'weak skin'. In fact everybody gets thinning skin on their legs and arms as they get past the age of 60. Already weak skin gets weaker as the years advance so that by the age of 80 it can be like parchment and the skin tears worse and more frequent. With people who have taken steroids it can be an even bigger problem.
At last legs can now be protected by wearing our patented medically registered DERMATUff skin tears protection stockings , or leg protectors and arms with our skin tears protection sleeves or forearm protectors.
