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.

Where Can I Use the DermisPlus Strips?
The DermisPlus Strips are ideal for relieving pressure in a wide range of areas around the body. Examples include, but are not limited to:
