Protect-A-Limb

Frail skin on legs and arms is easily damaged and slow to heal. Protect-a-Limb® with Coolmax® holds the answer!

Protect-a-Limb® protects the limbs from skin tears and skin damage. It is light in weight and yet bulky enough to protect. Aged Care Health Professionals highly recommend Protect-a-Limb® as a truly effective means of preventing recurring skin tears, with the resultant saving to healthcare costs. It is easy and fast to apply when compared to other methods of protection.

As people age, 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 tears, bumps and bruises out of life due to its durability, high comfort level, easy application and soft feel against the skin. Protect-a-Limb® is also extremely cost effective, making it a must in every aged care facility.

Protect-a-Limb® is an Australian made healthcare product designed and tested for 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®, 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.
