The problem with something like this is that literally anybody can make a bandaid that fits your hand. There's nothing here that can be made proprietary. If the product becomes popular, this guy will get undercut by somebody else immediately.

Actually, if he patent the design he is good for the life of the patent.  However, it sounds like this guy is just an overall nice man who tries to solve problems for anyone.  He probably is on to his next invention.
