HOW BLIST-O-BAN WORKS
When a force is applied to the skin, the central dome collapses and produces a gliding movement, effectively redirecting the pressure vector away from the protected area. If movement exceeds the distance the dome can glide, the low friction polyurethane material will reduce friction experienced over the affected area. The area under the central dome will also experience less mechanical trauma, providing relief during use.
BENEFITS AND FEATURES
- Reduces skin friction and shear
- Medical-grade adhesive
- Multi-day protection
IMPROVEMENTS FOR 2011
We strengthened the adhesion properties for a longer lasting bandage and we upgraded the bandage material allowing:
- greater elasticity (for greater comfort, adhesion and durability).
- greater dissipation of friction and shear against the affected area (the primary causes of blisters).
- increased breathability (improves on the condition of the skin).
- Dressing Size: 2.6 in x 1.5 in (6.8 cm x 3.8 cm). Dressing Dome Size (diameter): 0.9 in (2.29 cm)
- Acrylic adhesive
- Polyurethane film
- 5 bandages per recyclable paper pouch
