Product Description

Our Protex DL is designed to help reduce the risk of damage to the LVAD driveline that is exposed to the environment. The Protex DL is composed of two important smart materials. First, there is an outer weather resistant shell that protects against moisture (important if the driveline’s outer covering is already compromised). The second smart material is Cut-Tex® PRO. Cut-Tex® PRO is an ultra-high cut resistant fabric, made out of an innovative combination of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) and other technical fibers weaved by special high-density knitting machines. This material is one of the most effective cut and slash resistant fabrics in the world.

With these smart materials the Protex DL provides:

  • Moisture resistance.
  • Protection from cuts and tears to outer sheath of driveline.
  • Reduced risk of driveline wire fractures.
  • A measure of protection from total driveline severance at covered portion.
  • Protection from UV light.

The Protex DL is washer and dryer safe (Cut-Tex® PRO’s properties improve with washing).

      Hello Daniel! Thank you for your comment. Making the Protex DL both secure and easy to put on and take off was an important design element. So much so, that we are continually searching for ways to improve the Protex DL’s ease of use.

    AWESOME, my Protex DL Driveline Protector provides the secure protection that I needed for peace of mind as I enjoy daily activities. It is very comfortable and easy to place inside my vest pocket; It’s easy to remove and clean. My Left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD) Driveline have been Wrapped with the Protex DL for approximately 11 months and I have been extremely pleased with it’s ability to protect my driveline. Kudos👍

    I was asked by my center to test the driveline protector. it does all it is advertised to do. I use it 24×7. I highly recomend it for safety and for peace of mind. it is well worth 60 bucks twice a year.
