Launching… iPRO Elite single use eye protector
30 Oct 2019
The Fannin Skintact® team are pleased to announce the launch of the iPRO ELITE Single Use Eye Protector.
This next generation of the iPRO is manufactured from a light, translucent material. iPRO ELITE can be easily applied to the patients’ eye, during induced anaesthesia and is the only eye protector that uses a gentle silicone adhesive*.
Silicone adhesives represent a significant advancement in medical adhesives1. The main benefits being that they are gentle to the skin1 and have a lower surface tension than traditional adhesives. This allows them to conform to the skin’s natural contours, creating a secure and constant bond 2,3,4.
Research to date suggests that these products are gentler than other types of adhesive and are therefore associated with a lower risk of skin injury and discomfort during removal due to their physical properties1,5. In addition, each iPRO ELITE may be repositioned if required.
Easy to use…
· The iPRO uses a gentle silicone adhesive to help reduce the risk of skin tears and abrasions
