Bloccs Waterproof Protectors

BLOCCS - Waterproof Protector for Casts and Dressings
Bloccs provide a range of re-usable waterproof covers for casts and wound dressings that allow adults and children to bathe, shower and even enjoy time at the swimming pool or beach during their recovery. This is possible because our protectors are fully water-tight and completely submergible.

Whilst our primary target market continues to be those with plaster casts for fractures, Bloccs protectors can also be used to keep dressings for burns, leg ulcers and other such wounds dry.

Bloccs will be showcasing a new product alongside its range of existing waterproof, re-usable arm and leg protectors for plaster casts and dressings. The long, thin, hollow tube that is inserted into a vein above the elbow to administer chemotherapy or other medication is held in place by a dressing which is changed weekly. Known as a PICC line, the tube has to be kept dry and infection-free so Bloccs have created a water-tight, protective elbow cover that allows the patient to shower and bath normally.

The cover will be on display for the first time at the Medica trade fair in November and is expected to create a lot of interest. Bloccs have just been presented with the Queen’s Award for Enterprise and Innovation in the UK – a highly sought-after accolade that rewards technological creativity at the very highest level.
