ShearBan® Rivet Cover Patches – Hypoallergenic Covering for Metal Parts to Reduce Skin Redness, Erythema, Inflammation from Rubbing

We met with a customer today and talked about ShearBan®. He makes lots of spinal orthoses. He said one of his patients recently experienced skin redness from the metal rivets on the spinal orthosis. When the patient came back in, the orthotist covered the rivets with ShearBan Rivet Cover Patches. The redness disappeared.

ShearBan is made from a special blend of PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene). PTFE is used on a variety of implantable devices because it is biologically inert and non-biodegradable in the body.
