Fabric Surrounds are a practical and pleasing accessory for children and adults
who have a feeding tube inserted into their tummies.
They are designed to replace the tape and gauze/swispers.
Many individuals have allergies to tape, however, these surrounds are held in
place by a Snap. So NO more tape or sticky residue on tummies or fingers!
Surround is made from 100% cotton with absorbent bamboo fabric. All natural
materials for a sensitive area, but you also have the antibacterial and
breathable properties of bamboo.
Apikali Fabric Surrounds are soft enough to assist with preventing rub marks
from the tube, and making changing time a lot easier.
Care and Use instructions:
Wash in warm water with a quarter of your regular detergent. If Surrounds are
absorbing discharge, then soak in warm water and wash as above.
If an infection is present, ensure antibacterial rinse is used to prevent
continued infection. If concerned, please see your GP.
Depending upon each individuals condition, we suggest changing at least twice a
day for hygiene. If discharge is constant, we suggest changing every few hours.
