What Our Customers Have Been Saying
"We have a resident that will be 104 years old in June. She frequently sustained numerous skin tears and bruises to both of her arms. According to her daughter, "it seems I got weekly calls to notify me about skin tears and bruises. These sleeves have been a lifesaver. My mother really enjoys them. I'm also impressed how well they fit with her clothing. They are not too tight."
"Since we applied the DermaSaver Arm Tubes four months ago this resident has not sustained any skin injuries. She absolutely loves them, finding them soft and comfortable. We are now also using DermaSaver Leg tubes for additional protection, and no new skin issues have developed. When asked today, the resident replied, "The sleeves are soft, warm and comfortable. They are a good length and don't get in the way when I eat, and that's important to me."
We are also using the DermaSaver Arm Tubes on an elderly diabetic gentleman. His skin has remained intact since he has worn them. I will continue to order and promote your product. As a certified wound care consultant I am always looking to prevent a problem before it occurs, and your product serves that purpose very well."

"I'm writing to tell you how satisfied we are with your DermaSaver products. We are a 300-bed Rehab and LTC facility and deal with a wide range of skin care challenges on a daily basis. Having products such as yours have proven to be a safe and comfortable alternative to protect the skin of our residents against trauma and pressure. Currently, we use Stay-Put Heel Protectors, Full Arm and Leg Tubes and Oxygen Tube Covers. Here are some testimonials from some of our nursing staff:
"The Stay-Put Heel Protectors stay on the most restless of patients, cutting down on friction and shearing. They are comfortable and patients don't try to remove them, and they don't fall off in bed!"
"Within 4 days of applying the Stay-Put Heel Protectors, the redness from a stage I pressure ulcer was resolved on a bedfast resident with upper and lower body contractures."
"The Full Arm Tubes do a great job in prevention of skin tears in residents with fragile skin."
"All the DermaSaver products are soft and springy. I've seen a great reduction in skin tears on my unit. These products are great for prevention from breakdown for heels, knees and elbows."
"Residents who are usually resistant to any type of protectors to arms or feet find the DermaSaver products and are compliant with wearing your product."
"We used the Oxygen Tube Covers on a resident who uses oxygen around the clock via nasal cannula and had developed a pressure ulcer behind her ear. Her ulcer healed quickly, she never re-opened and she continues to use the Oxygen Tube Covers."
Thank you for providing our residents with such a wonderful and safe product."

"We purchased a 35" x 24" DermaSaver Flat pad for one of our residents who developed a Stage II on her coccyx area. The resident was refusing to get out of bed most days and is a very poor eater. She has a diagnosis of irritable bowel syndrome. We placed her on the pad on September 28 and continued with treatment. We kept her brief off as much as possible. By October 12, she is completely healed. We have kept her on the pad as a preventative measure and have seen no re-opening.
I am also using the Arm Tubes and Leg Tubes on several residents and have had no further skin tears. The residents who are using them love them and the families have given positive comments. I wish I had tried your products sooner

"I have been working as a wound nurse at this facility for years and I am always looking for a 'better' product to prevent and protect all types of wounds. I am thrilled with the DermaSaver products; they are everything I have been looking for. Most of the products I have tried either bunch or twist, never truly staying in the needed area. Most products are intended for a single use and therefore are not very cost effective. I especially like the fact DermaSaver products can be washed and dried quickly and then can be re-used for other residents.
We have a dementia units where the residents have little or no safety awareness. Most of the time we don't know how skin tears, bruises or abrasions occurred. We used your product on two residents who always seem to have a new wound. The first resident (wheelchair bound) would often have 4 or 5 skins tears on each leg in various stages of healing. We purchased two of the DermaSaver Shin~Knee tubes and she has not had a new wound since July 25 when we started the product. The second resident always had skin tears and bruises on his arms; the DermaSaver full arm tube has worked wonderfully. He has not had any new wounds since July 28th and we purchased a second pair for him. His wife is thrilled that we no longer have to wrap his arms in the bulky kerlix gauze dressings.
Again thank you for such a great way to protect and treat our fragile population."

"The DermaSaver Arm Tubes are really wonderful . Every time we purchase them we love them more & more. They have prevented countless skin tears and bruises on the residents. And they're very durable.

"The DermaSaver arm & leg tubes are great products for skin protection. Residents find them soft and comfortable, and not tight like other products we've tried. The natural colour of the product looks nice on the residents. They work really well with residents who are self mobile in the wheelchair and have a tendency to bump their arms and legs. We really like your products."

"We are very impressed with the DermaSaver products.The resident that used the Pressure Reduction pillowcase commented that she had not slept so well in a long time. We put the Stay-Put Heel Protector on a gentleman that would never keep anything on but he has been wearing this product consistently.Your products are very nice!"
CAMBRIDGE HEALTH CENTER, CAMBRIDGE, MN
"The DermaSaver Arm Tubes are the greatest. We've been using them on residents with high risk for injury and have had no incidences. The residents like them, find them comfortable and not too warm. I can't say enough good things about your products."

"We love the DermaSaver products! It's much better than what we were using before...the patients 'legs are not getting torn up. I've been in this profession for over 20 years and this is the best product I have ever seen!"

"Here is yet another testimonial from another happy customer. "The Stay-Put Heel Protectors decreases the likelihood of friction and pressure. They also prevent the formation of new decubitus ulcers." From the office of Podiatry at the Nashua Center for Healthy Aging, 280 Main St, Nashua NH 03060. Thank you again for providing our residents with such a wonderful and safe product."
