We have been pleased to have been able to hold the line on DermaSaver pricing without a price increase for many years. The manufacturer, based in the U.S., increased their prices on some items over the past couple of years and we absorbed the increase with the exception of the Flat Pad 35×24. Those who keep an eye on the exchange rates between the Canadian and U.S. dollar will be aware that we have enjoyed exchange rates fairly close to par for many years, however the cost of buying U.S. money has been steadily increasing over the past year. The rate is currently approaching $1.30 Canadian for each U.S. dollar. Our pricing was set when the rates were considerably closer to par. We have been paying close attention to the financial forecasts for the past while and it doesn’t seem that the cost of buying product out of the U.S. will decrease any time soon, therefore we have made the tough decision to increase our pricing on the DermaSaver line effective August 1, 2015. Pricing will be updated on the website at www.dermasaver.ca and new product booklets are being printed. Those involved in wound care recognize the value of this amazing line that provides breathable pressure reduction and is completely launderable and patient transferable, making it one of the most cost-effective front line health care solutions available.
