General Questions

Do you send out samples?

Is it sterile?

Each ABBy is packaged individually as a clean product, it is not sterile.  It has been designed to go over the skin and not the incision or wound directly.

Are there other sizes?

There are two sizes, the ABBy and the ABBy+.  Here are there measurements and indications for use.  ABBy – dimensions are 16.9” x 12.3”. Approximately for BMIs up to 49.

ABBy+ – dimensions are 18.375” x 16.25”. Approximately for BMIs 50 or greater.

How much do they cost?

Pricing is available upon request.  Please “Drop us a Note” from the bottom of the web page to learn about pricing of the items.

What if it gets wet after it’s applied?

Once applied, the retractor is unaffected by fluids, because it is a complete vapor and moisture barrier.

Can I reapply it if it touches the patient or touches itself?

It’s very forgiving. It reacts to pressure much more than contact so if you push it down it will apply, but if it folds back on itself, just touches you or the patient, it removes easily to reapply.

How long can I wear it?

ABBy and ABBy+ can be worn up to 14 days.  You may get longer use out of it depending on many number of factors too numerous to mention.  Some may be how clean it has been kept, how often it got dirty, wet, soiled, left out in the open, etc.

Recommended use?

ABBy and ABBy+ may be used to hold the panniculus off an incision from a C-Section, Hysterectomy or any transverse abdominal incision or abdominal wound.  Many have continued to use the ABBy after being healed finding it very comfortable and relieving back pain and other assorted issues.

Can I shower in it?

Yes, it can be worn in the shower.  Pat it dry after the shower.  It can also be removed and re-applied if desired.

Is this only for C-Sections?

ABBy and ABBy+ may be used to hold the panniculus off an incision from a C-Section, Hysterectomy or any transverse abdominal incision or abdominal wound.  Many have continued to use the ABBy after being healed finding it very comfortable and relieving back pain and other assorted issues.
