How frequently do patients enter your facility who:

  • Are at risk for skin damage?
  • Have moisture-associated skin damage?
  • Face challenges that involve excessive moisture and odor?
  • Are morbidly obese and difficult to move or position?

Improve patient experience and patient satisfaction by making the bed a refuge for healing. DermaTherapy® bottom sheets, top sheets, pillowcases, patient gowns, and underpads may be used as a medical intervention for your patients.

As quoted in the National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel Guidelines: “Consider using silk-like fabrics rather than cotton or cotton-blend fabrics to reduce shear and friction."

The first and only therapeutic linen designed with specific patients and conditions in mind, DermaTherapy® is FDA registered for atopic dermatitis treatment, as it helps to control the microclimate—moisture, friction and shear—between the patient’s skin and the surface of the bed.

Wound, ostomy, and incontinence treatment can be difficult for patients and families to face. Traditional, abrasive textiles may add to adverse effects by damaging the skin when a patient moves or is moved while lying in bed.

DermaTherapy® was developed to enhance patient and family centered care, and promote optimal health care outcomes.

High-tech, wicking, continuous yarns offer a smoother surface, reducing the coefficient of friction by over 90%, and increasing tensile strength by 70%.

One of the best methods for wound care treatment is prevention. Moisture balance in the wound bed and controlling bacteria is essential. Silk-like therapeutic bedding can help increase standards of patient care, while lowering overall healthcare costs.
