What is a Mobiderm?
Mobiderm is comprised of open-cell foam in an adhesive non-woven fabric. When two areas of pressure are placed on the Mobiderm (think bandages/compressive material & muscle movement) a shear effect (foam squares move down and across simultaneously) is created.
This shear effect mobilises the skin which pulls on the collagen fibres stimulating the opening of the initial lymphatic vessels. It also creates a pressure differential in the interstitial tissues.
MOBI = Mobilise DERM = Dermis.
