Hi Lea, these arrived today. They are for my 90 yr old mother, whose shin skin was torn by the slightest tap of the paw by my gentle dog - and through thick tights at that. She is exceptionally fussy, but is delighted with them - easy to put on, and so comfortable she says she doesn't even know they are there.
When looking up thin shin skin, I came across discussions in a diabetes forum, and in a bronchiectasis forum; both conditions seem to result in very fragile shin skin - the bronchiectasis because they have to take steroids long-term, and this thins the shin skin. I posted messages in both, mentioning your wikkies. Some sufferers were mentioning a new Aveeno cream they have found helps - 'Positively Ageless Skin Strengthening Body Cream' which I found at soft-skin.co.uk - cheaper there than at amazon. Might be useful for your relative with the thin skin too.
Best wishes & thanks
I Just wanted to let you know that my mom received the Wikkies yesterday (Monday). She said that they fit great and she can't believe how light and comfortable they are. She likes them very much and IS wearing them! I will see them when I visit her on Saturday; I can't wait to see them myself! Thank you so very much!!!

I was very impressed with the efficient way you dealt with my order for Fun 2 leg Protector. These were for my husband who is a diabetic, he was equally impressed with them when he used them in the garden over the weekend.This protection of his legs will thankfully prevent him from having more damage that has to be treated at the doctors.

Thought you would like to know that my 89 year old Dad LOVES his wikkies. They protect his legs perfectly when he out sailing, his favourite activity. So glad that I found you on the web!
My husband suffered a severe fracture between his knee and ankle and recently underwent his fourth operation in which they fitted a spatial frame from which 8 wires go through the leg to hold the bone in pace. It is therefore essential to keep the wounds clean and protected from dust etc. As the spatial frame measures 27 inches in circumference, trousers will not go over it. I saw the Wikkies website and thought a pair of these would be ideal. I rang Lea and explained the problem. Lea was fantastic and custom made us a pair which we received on a Thursday morning after having initially spoken to her on Tuesday lunchtime. Wonderful service. Thank you so much Lea.

Thank you so much for the very quick delivery of the leg protectors to my Dad in Achiltibuie. He got them on Friday.
He had no idea that I had found your site and ordered them. He tried one on straight away and was extremely impressed – he has had both on all weekend and is already saying how comfortable they are and that it has increased his confidence. He is currently getting building work done so there are many hazards which have already caused problems so to hear him saying this after a matter of hours was fantastic. We have been trying to come up with different ideas to help and not really getting anywhere so finding your site was a god send! The District Nurse was also very impressed and went away with the details!
Thank you for a wonderful product which not only has helped my Dad but given my brother and I a bit less to worry about.
“I have used my leg protectors for 6 months now, I would like to tell you how they have transformed my life. Knocks, bumps and cuts to my legs were very painful and led to months of treatment at the clinic because my skin is very thin and painful to touch. The reason for this is long term use of steroids due to lung problems.
My life was getting quite unbearable. I was frightened to go to the supermarket, mall or even the beach in case I got hurt. My grandchildren had to keep their distance, this made me very sad. I couldn’t go swimming, which I loved, I was so frightened if anyone came near me. My family took me on holiday, but I was confined to a wheelchair for my own protection.
Since my leg protectors I go shopping everywhere. I go on holiday and on day trips. I can enjoy my two year old grandson even more along with my other grandchildren without worrying. I am looking forward to my trip to france and being able to walk through the airport and getting on the plane the same as everyone else.
I have my life back because of my leg protectors”

“A very prompt and friendly service. I am now wearing my 'Wikkies' out and about, so far so good”

“I recently purchased a pair of Wikkies for my father who has suffered for many many years with, sore, delicate legs. He also has very large calves and the large size of Wikkies would be too small for him.
I only discovered Wikkies the weekend prior to Christmas and really wanted to get them as a Christmas present for him. I contacted Wikkies and was very surprised to receive confirmation that they were prepared to have a pair specially made! I was also told they would be made that weekend and posted out on the Monday and hopefully they would arrive in time for Christmas. I am pleased to say that they arrived Christmas Eve and my dad thinks they are wonderful.
Many thanks to Lea for such great, friendly, customer service. I will not hesitate to recommend Wikkies to my family and friends.
All the best for 2009.”
