The Buchanan Protector is more than just a neckworn bib. It is a serious medical device designed to improve the patients breathing.
It delivers unique benefits to neck breathers through effective product design and material composition — the crucial benefits delivered by the exclusive Hydrolox 1 Foam.
The original Buchanan protector was invented by a laryngectomy patient, William Buchanan of Renfrewshire, Scotland in 1967. Patented as ‘An Improved Respiratory Pad’ it was the first device of its kind to be added to the prescription register.
Kapitex developed the Buchanan® range further to include the Buchanan Lite which provides four layers of protection. The Buchanan® Lite includes a non-woven breathable polyester outer layer, with dual layer micro-fibre core. The Buchanan® laryngectomy range has been scientifically designed and tested to provide the highest levels of humidification and filtration. The Buchanan® Protectors are Class 1 medical devices and carry a CE mark as required by the Medical Device Directive (93/42/EEC).
