We develop, manufacture and supply Thin Skin Protection Socks and Sleeves for people with thinning or fragile skin.
It is DERMATUff’s vision that with the aid of our fragile skin protection socks and sleeves, injuries from thin skin can be largely prevented.
Improving our quality of life
When Peter Thornton was a boy, the life expectancy for men was 60 and for women it was 65. These days it is 78 for men and 82 for women. It is a wonderful thing that our lives have been extended. This is a result of improved medical provision, a healthier lifestyle, a better quality of life and better education. However, it is a sad fact that in many ways, our quality of life is not nearly as good as it should be. We are living much longer but in our old age, we often suffer from illnesses and ailments which were previously not thought to be a problem. As a result, these products were produced to improve the quality of life for thin skin sufferers.
- Products are made using Aramid Fibres.
- Our products come in different sizes.
- Dermatuff products are a Class one Registered Medical Device.
- We have a partnership with the NHS.
- Products are made in Britain.
Particularly we would like to mention management, staff and residents of Care Homes in the South West of England where residents took part in the trials including: Southgarth, Resthaven, Exmouth House, Manor Lodge, Cranford, Halsdown, and Palm Court.
