Beach BUDDY® – a waterproof cover to protect wound dressings on legs and arms from sand & water 

Don’t miss out sitting on the beach. Keep your dressings clean & dry with a BUDDY® cover

It is disheartening to sit on the side lines watching everyone else enjoy the beach. Nearly all of us will experience this at some point in our lives due to a limb injury of some kind.  BUDDY® covers can help…

We recommend using BUDDY® an hour at a time.  The air can be refreshed inside periodically by gently pulling the corner seal  to keep the limb cool, or you can cool down paddling in the sea.

Caring for the Elderly – Showering and Bathing

By | Waterproof covers | No Comments
Beryl - Caring for the elderly blog - buddy® covers

buddy® covers are an easy, gentle solution for keeping wound dressings dry in the shower and bath 

As carers, one of our many responsibilities is to maintain the personal hygiene of those we care for.  Our MD Joanna has experienced this 1st hand caring for her elderly relatives over a number of years.

“Skin tears and foot/leg ulcers are a big problem for elderly people when showering/bathing. Dressings have to be kept dry to prevent infection and re-dressing.” “According to UK statistics skin tears are usually on arms and hands around 80%, and round 42.5% are on delicate elderly skin.” 

Although waterproof wound dressings are now available, many cautious people opt for additional protection.

Waterproof wound covers are a great way to ensure this protection during a shower or bath – and we believe buddy® covers are the best protection for wounds.

buddy® covers are;

  • waterproof 

  • very soft and flexible

  • non-restrictive 

  • feel like a second skin

  • lightweight

  • reusable up to 30 times with careful use

  • submergible

  • made from latex free medical grade material

  • gentle on delicate skin
