Precision Dippings Manufacturing (PDM) have revealed their new Bloccs' elbow protector packaging which will be on public display for the first time at Medica 2017.
Designed to keep a dressing, cast or PICC line dry whilst having a shower or bath, the re-usable adult and childrens covers are easily stretched over the elbow area to create a waterproof seal.
PDM is a specialist manufacturer of bespoke rubber-dipped items for clients in a range of different industries. Based in the UK, they developed their Bloccs' range after one of the directors' children broke a limb just before going on holiday. Using their expertise, the team created a watertight cover so the child could enjoy time in the pool. The solution worked so well that, following years of intense research and development, the company launched Bloccs, their first consumer product. In 2016, the range won a Queen's Award for Enterprise and Innovation and, in the last year, sales have increased by 20%.
"We're delighted with the ongoing success of Bloccs and are really looking forward to the opportunity of exhibiting our new elbow protectors at Medica," said Business Development Consultant Hannah Prickett. "They are designed to make a real difference to patients with a PICC line."
The Precision Dippings Manufacturing stand is in Hall 16/G25-1.
