SAM Medical Blist-O-Ban



Fran Hildwine, BS, NREMT-P, CCEMT-P | | Monday, May 12, 2008

"Fight fire with fire" is an axiom that may have inspired SAM Medical's Blist-O-Ban to "fight blisters with blisters." Friction is the enemy in foot care, and anyone who has had to finish a shift with an untreated hot spot or blister knows how painful and irritating they can be. Blist-O-Ban features a breathable, medical-grade, sterile adhesive covered by a BursaTek dome that glides smoothly in all directions. By transferring the friction to the BursaTek dome instead of the skin, blisters and hot spots are reduced and prevented.
