DermaTherapy® is the first and only silk-like fabric cleared by the FDA* for the prevention of pressure ulcers.
Silk-like fabric has been recognized and recommended in the National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (NPUAP) Clinical Practice Guideline:
"Consider using silk-like fabrics rather than cotton or cotton-blend fabrics to reduce shear and friction."

Controlling the patient’s microclimate is an intervention used for both the prevention of pressure ulcers and the treatment of existing skin damage.
DermaTherapy® is proven to more effectively manage the patient’s microclimate by reducing shear and friction, and controlling moisture and heat.
DermaTherapy®'s uniquely engineered fibers have micro channels that wicks moisture away 40% faster and dries 60% faster than cotton-blend bedding.
