The Importance of Maintaining Skin Integrity
In Canada, one in four patients is affected by skin integrity problems. With an aging population such as ours, these problems need to be addressed and prevented before they occur. Studies show that numerous factors can lead to skin breakdown such as pressure, friction, shearing, nutrition, and excess moisture. Studies also show that over hydrated or under hydrated skin is more susceptible to pressure, shearing and friction. For this reason, utilizing effective moisture control interventions is that much more important. Moisture control will promote healing; reduce the risk of infection and prevent the enlargement of existing wounds. The skin is the body’s first line of defense against infection and any other external threats that make skin integrity maintenance that much more important.

Ventopedic – A Solution to Skin Integrity Maintenance
The entire Ventopedic product line is built around an effective moisture transport technology system aimed at maintaining skin integrity on a variety of body parts. Structured around fabric functionality, the Ventopedic products are designed to effectively draw moisture away from the skin while the 3 dimensional interior found in every product controls and /or eliminates any moisture absorption. The continuous airflow ventilation inside each product allows it to keep dry even in the highest levels of humidity.
What makes Ventopedic products so unique?
Every Ventopedic product has different attributes that make them unique, but their ability to NOT ABSORB moisture is what makes them stand out. The fabric functionality behind each Ventopedic product is like no other on the market today. Many product manufactures will claim to have products that draw moisture or perspiration away from the skin, but where will the moisture or perspiration end up… most likely inside the products, and that is where we are different! Our clinical test results confirm that the Ventopedic concept will remain dry even under extreme humidity conditions (38°C / 98% Humidity).
