As people get older their skin begins to change. Aged care workers have been accustomed to dealing with these changes to elderly people’s skin by moisturising and protecting the limb from the environment. This process has worked quite well in the past - but there has always been a concern with the type of elastic bandages used to keep the moisture in - this is where Protect-a-Limb® steps in.
 
This exciting product has been designed to take the bumps and bruises out of life due to its durability, high comfort level, easy application, and soft to touch and feel against the skin - not to mention, it’s extremely cost effective - making it a must in every aged care facility.
 
Protect-a-Limb® is an Australian made healthcare product designed and tested in Australian conditions. It has been engineered to ensure the person requiring the garment remains cool in summer and warm in winter - a necessity in our harsh Australian climate.
 
The “cool in summer and warm in winter” element of Protect-a-Limb® is achieved by the unique Coolmax® System. Coolmax®, which is a registered trademark of INVISTA, is a channelled synthetic fibre on the inner of Protect-a-Limb®, surrounded by cotton on the outer surface which is slightly retentive.

Coolmax®:

  • Dries faster than other fabrics
  • Is cost effective - saving time in application
  • Gives protection against friction to vulnerable limbs
  • Aids in patient comfort
  • Wicks away moisture and prevents maceration
  • Is hygienic - can be washed as easily as a pair of socks
  • Has sealed ends to prevent fraying

Protect-a-Limb® is available in 4 different sizes:

  • Extra Small - suits arm and small leg. Length 30cm, circumference ~14cm.
  • Small - suits arm and small leg. Length 40cm, circumference ~18cm.
  • Medium - suits arm and average lower leg. Length 50cm, circumference ~20cm.
  • Large - full leg length. Length 60cm, circumference ~24cm.

District Nurse, Sister Robyn Price says,
“Protect-a-Limb® has virtually eliminated the revolving door of ulcerated arms and legs of my frail skin patients. It has improved their quality of life and made it easier for them to move around”.
