Fragile Skin Clothing
What is meant by fragile skin clothing?
(Go to Home Page). Fragile skin clothing consists of fabric that is gentle on the skin of the elderly and often the garments have long sleeves to protect the arms. As we get older, our skin becomes less elastic and tends to tear and bruise more easily. Buck and Buck is aware of the problems caused by fragile skin and has a collection of fragile skin clothing that is designed to protect arms and legs against abrasions and bruises. Some items to look at in the fragile skin clothing collection are the leg and arm protectors available in both light weight and polar fleece. All of our long sleeve garments are excellent choices in the fragile skin clothing line. The added fabric layer over the skin on the arms and legs becomes a barrier to aid in preventing cuts and tears. Our men's and women's sweatsuits, made of soft sweat fleece, provide good protection to both the arms and legs of the elderly as well as giving the added benefit of warmth to the wearer. The Buck and Buck foot snugglers, which we designed years ago, have been very popular for those elderly who have very fragile skin and who are non-ambulatory. The soft cushion of shearling fleece protects the skin from abrasions and keeps the legs and feet warm which promotes circulation.
