Designed to help prevent blisters before they start, Blist-O-Ban medical grade adhesive bandages are ideal for use over any blisters, hot spots, or injury prone areas. They’re perfect for breaking in a new pair of boots, going on a hike, heading out for a jog, or working a long walking shift on the job. A more effective alternative to moleskin, roll-ons, and sprays, Blist-O-Ban ultra-thin, breathable, water-resistant, and latex-free bandages can be used for multi-day protection.
Blist-O-Ban addresses the very cause of blisters — friction and shear forces on the skin. The Blist-O-Ban bandage features a patented dome that glides smoothly in all directions, deflecting friction and shear forces away from the skin. When a force is applied to the skin, the central dome collapses and produces a gliding movement, effectively redirecting the pressure vector away from the protected area.
If movement exceeds the distance the dome can glide, the low friction polyurethane material will reduce friction experienced over the affected area. The area under the central dome will also experience less mechanical trauma, providing relief during use.
