The Repose DermisPlus Pressure Redistribution Sheets (Pack of 5) have been designed to relieve pressure for many different parts of the body, including knees, chin, and hands. They are suitable for trimming to a more comfortable size, and can be washed for improved hygiene.
How Does DermisPlus Technology Work?
DermisPlus products have been designed to redistributes peak pressures over a wider surface area, thus reducing the risk of pressure-related tissue damage. It can be used anywhere on the body that is identified as being at risk, especially where there are bony prominences, and even under medical devices such as tubing and mask straps.
Who Can Use the DermisPlus Sheets?
The DermisPlus Sheets, as with the rest of the DermisPlus Prevent range, can be used in the following circumstances:
- For intact skin where there is a risk of pressure damage
- On areas of the body with existing Category 1 pressure damage
- On recently healed ulcers to protect against the risk of re-ulceration
Where Can I Use the DermisPlus Sheets?
The DermisPlus Sheets are ideal for relieving pressure in a wide range of areas around the body. Examples include, but are not limited to, the occiput (back of the head), between the knees, under the chin, or folded for hand contractures.
How Easy Are the Sheets to Apply?
The DermisPlus Sheets are very easy to apply. Although durable when applied, DermisPlus products are flexible and comfortable, allowing for ease of application in the desired area.
How Do the Sheets Stay In Place?
To ensure optimal use for pressure relief, the DermiPlus Sheets should be secured in place. Suitable retention methods include using tape, a tubular bandage, or underwear.

Can I Cut the DemisPlus Sheets?
