ARM & LEG PROTECTORS for Prevention of Skin Tears & Trauma

Designed to assist with the prevention of trauma and skin tears to the limbs and to protect people with ‘tissue thin skin’. Leg and arm protectors offer additional protection against injury or injury sustained during routine care. Research has shown that skin tears are often sustained during manual handling, bathing and showering, or when assisting individuals to transfer from bed to chairs.

The leg & arm protectors have the added advantage of offering a support surface for those who are frail or immobile by preventing injuries that often result from friction or shear forces. Additionally, they can ensure bony prominences are not in direct contact with each other.


Particular individuals identified at a high risk of developing skin tears or injuries to the limbs include those who are immobile and dependent on others for assistance with transferring or changing positions, individuals who are bed or chair fast, those with peripheral neuropathy, history of stroke, diabetes, the frail elderly and those suffering cognitive decline.
