Elderly people can have extremely fragile skin, often only as strong as tissue paper.
These arm protectors unlike many offer coverage and protection to the most vulnerable area, the back of the hand. As an option, some patients may prefer to have their hands completely free by simply removing their thumb from the hole.
Arm protectors are used to prevent skin tears and abrasions during the day to day activities. The fabric feels very soft fitting, comfortable, snug and protective. Skin arm protectors are 100% latex-free.
Wearing skin protective sleeves can reduce or eliminate traumas from friction, bumps and abrasions. Additionally, to provide a layer of protection, they also provide warmth without compression.
These skin protectors have the added benefits of antimicrobial properties (Chitosan Rayon) protecting against odour causing bacteria often accompanying wounds and skin problems, and fighting the growth of bacteria, moulds fungi.
