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.
