Thin Skin Protection Sleeves / Arm Protectors


*£5.00 off all pairs now with coupon code: 

Thin skin tends to be a prevalent issue as we age, and even a minor bump or fall can cause long-lasting and painful skin tears or bruises.

DERMATUff© Unisex arm protectors are designed with multiple purposes in mind, clinically proven to offer protection against skin tears, skin flaps and lacerations, providing similar impact resistance to body armour.

Please see below for product features, size information and delivery options.

UK Standard Shipping – £3.50 (up to 10 pairs)

  • Made with impact-resistant yarns spun from Kevlar® by DuPont and elasticated nylon, ensuring both a cushioning effect whilst maintaining cut, tear and abrasion resistance and elasticity to fit a wide range of arm diameters without applying excess pressure.
  • Registered with the MHRA as a CE marked Class 1 Medical Device, clinically evaluated and proven to work as intended. 
  • DERMATUff© arm protectors are non-restrictive designed with a soft band and no compression as required by patients with Oedema, Lymphoedema or Vascular problems.
  • DERMATUff© arm protectors are a popular alternative as footless leg protection. Click here for further information and sizing.
  • An independent study showed a 97% reduction rate in the level of expected skin tears and bruises when DERMATUff© arm protectors were worn.
  • Machine wash between each use at temperatures below 180 degrees ensures the arm protectors maintain their efficiency.
