Customer Reviews

“Why do so few people know about your wonderful product and why is it so hard to find? My mother in law has been suffering from fragile skin for some time. For the past three months, she has been recovering from a major skin tear which occurred during a bike ride. Her leg hit her bike’s pedal as we were waiting to cross the road. Realising that this situation could be a turning point in her super active lifestyle, I ordered your socks and arm sleeves”

“I have been using these products for a few years and the difference that they have made to my life is huge. I have very fragile skin due to steroid use and suffered many bad skin tears prior to discovering these limb protectors. Without them I would have no confidence being in crowded places, nor would I be comfortable near excitable grandchildren whom I was always having to keep at arm’s length. These protectors have changed my life – the number of injuries that I have avoided have been innumerable. Thank you so much. Please never stop making them!!!”

“Ordered a pair in June 2018 and now have 6 pairs. A lady dropped her suitcase on my leg shortly after I started wearing the socks, normally I would dread the result of such a minor accident but the socks prevented any cuts or skin damage .I can also carry out gardening with peace of mind. Thank You!”
