Protecting Skin against damage due to Friction and Shear
The unique properties of Parafricta® Fabric offer benefits that protect skin from damage:
- Low coefficient of friction. This reduces frictional damage to and breakdown of vulnerable skin. It also stops dressings from being detached due to friction.
- Absence of "stiction". The skin does not "jerk" whilst moving against Parafricta® products, so the damage to the tissue below the skin is minimized.
- High Tensile strength. The Parafricta® products are durable in use.
- Washable up to high temperatures. Parafricta® products maintain their unique properties after many washings at the maximum temperature of the washing machine. This provides a clean environment.
- Breathable. Parafricta® products are comfortable in use.
