DebRA and Niltac™
DebRA is a charity The first Debra group was founded in the UK by a group of parents whose children were affected by Epidermolysis bullosa (EB).
From humble origins Debra has grown significantly with Debra groups now having been established in about 40 countries around the world.
Debra International is an umbrella group whose members are the national associations representing people with EB in their countries.
What is EB?
Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) is a very rare genetic condition in which the skin and internal body linings blister at the slightest knock or rub, causing painful, open wounds.
Niltac™ is designed to release dressings without causing trauma or pain. It was introduced to the UK EB community during 2008 and, since then, has been adopted by patients across Europe and beyond.
One of the first EB Nurse Specialists to discover Niltac™ is Jackie Denyer (Senior Clinical Nurse Specialist, Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children, London).
She talks about the effects of Silicone Medical Adhesive Removers (SMARs):
'Silicone Medical Adhesive Removers have arguably revolutionized the process of safe and effective removal of medical adhesive products.’
‘Silicone Medical Adhesive Removers are invaluable for EB patient care.’
