LimbO keeps bandaged foot dry in the bath or shower

British manufacturing company Thesis Technology has announced that the foot model in its LimbO Waterproof Protector range is now available on FP10 prescription. The product has been designed for patients with chronic foot wounds, including diabetic foot ulcers, who need to keep their foot dressings dry in the shower and require a reliable and comfortable solution. The LimbO foot model, which has been accepted on the Drug Tariff for England and Wales, is a class 1 medical device first developed by Thesis Technology eight years ago. Its effective design incorporates a gentle non-constrictive neoprene seal. The waterproof cover is available in two sizes and is latex free, meaning it is simple and safe to use by patients with sensitive skin or compromised blood flow. As well as improving patient well-being, using a LimbO reduces the chance of dressings becoming wet and requiring unnecessary redressing and the healthcare risks, patient stress and costs associated.
