About the Dycem® brand
Dycem® non-slip material is widely used by occupational therapists and is ubiquitous in long term care facilities. Many of you who have visited a loved one in a nursing home have seen Dycem® material used to help stabilize objects, hold objects firmly in place, or to provide a better grip.
The product line includes bulk reels, precut pads, and functional shapes. FEI is a master distributor for the Dycem® product line. We decided to include it with our main brands because it is such an important ADL for so many people.
