The Posey Arm Skinsleeves are made of soft, stretchable fabric for protecting fragile skin. The sleeves provide coverage for the hand, forearm and elbows, and are ideal for protecting IV and wound sites from tears and abrasions.
The Posey Arm Skinsleeves are made of breathable 95% soft cotton and 5% Lycra fabric. The thumb cut out keeps the arm sleeve in place leaving the fingers and thumb free. These non-compression skin coverings provide a protective, comfortable fit for thin fragile skin. The soft, knitted yarn is a special blend of cotton/nylon/spandex/Chitosan rayon. Chitosanis a naturally occurring organic, moisture absorbing rayon fiber that offers anti-microbial properties. This antimicrobial agent protects the material against the growth of bacteria, fungi and molds, including odor-causing bacteria. Caregivers will find the Posey Arm Skinsleeves provide comfortable protection for fragile or sensitive skin that may bruise or tear easily.
