The DermaSaver Leg stays in place to protect fragile skin from pressure, friction, and minor traumas that result in tears, bruising, and abrasions. It consists of two layers of soft, lightweight MicroSping Textile that forms a loose-fitting tube. Unlike traditional fabric sleeves or stockings that are tight and binding, the layers of microfilaments allow air-flow and moisture transfer.
To use: 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 allow the tubes to be self-supporting. This prevents the DermaSaver from falling down and bunching up.
Each layer of MicroSpring textile has 4,000 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. Latex-free. 94% polyester, 6% spandex.
Antimicrobial: Protected by the AEGIS Microbe Shield, which inhibits the growth of microorganisms
Superior pressure and shear reduction
Breathability: Fabric and filament layers allow airflow, promote moisture transfer
Totally launderable, even in high-temperature laundries

I ordered these for my mother because we were noticing a lot of bruising on her shins. We thought the bruises may be from her crossing her lower legs and pressure on the skin. They fit perfectly, are cool and comfortable, and the bruises have gone away. Washed in washer and 10 minutes in dryer and they were like new. Definitely recommend this for prevention of skin breakdown.
Couldn't be happier with your service and the product! My 96 year old mom now has great protection for her legs.
My elderly Mother is always getting bad skin tears from transfers so these are now protecting her legs.
