At Parafricta, we believe that everyone deserves to feel confident, comfortable, and supported in their everyday lives. We understand the struggles individuals at risk of pressure ulcers, particularly wheelchair users and spinal injury patients, can face when it comes to finding undergarments that perfectly fit their unique body shapes and sizes. That's why we've invested our time and expertise in creating an extended range of larger size undergarments.
Launched on July 1, our new range of larger size Parafricta® undergarments is meticulously crafted using the finest materials and state-of-the-art technology. These undergarments feature our signature Parafricta® fabric, a specially engineered textile with outstanding friction reducing properties. It effortlessly glides against your skin, minimizing irritation, friction and associated shear to help prevent pressure ulcers and other friction -related skin conditions, such as intertrigo.
What sets the larger size undergarments apart is their inclusive designs, which take into account the diverse needs and body shapes of individuals. We have carefully considered every aspect, from the waistbands that sit comfortably without digging in, to the wider leg openings that offer a non-constricting fit. Our goal is to provide the perfect balance of support, breathability, and freedom of movement. We have also changed our guidance on how to select the best fit for each of the three styles (Velcro®-Brand Closure Brief, pull-up Briefs and pull-up Boxers). Please refer to our User Guide or Information Leaflet.
The new sizes will be admitted onto the Drug Tariff on October 1st, allowing them to be prescribed by the NHS, in the same way as the existing sizes.
A new Training Video on how best to employ our Undergarments goes live on September 6th.
