Infections and infection control are major concerns in nursing homes.
An independent clinical trial found our BodyShield reduced bacterial transfer and the risk of infection by an astounding 94%!
So much so that aged care facilities have been slowly moving away from using shared, reusable items. Clinical research proves that reusable products can harbour harmful pathogens and microbes, despite being cleaned or laundered — a serious health risk for both patients and staff.
Instead, nursing homes are opting for single-use products, a move that has led to a steady decline in healthcare-associated infections.
While a large number of healthcare products have been replaced with their single-use equivalent, such as curtains, surgical gowns, wipes, paper towels, gloves and, in some hospitals, surgical items, such as catheters, drains, central lines needles and even blinds, one high-contact, reusable product remains in use — hospital bed linen.

WORLD'S FIRST RESEARCH ― A significant amount of government funding is consistently allocated to research into infection risks and prevention in hospital environments, however, the same can't be said for therapy environments. This lack of research prompted us to commission our own preliminary research into the infection risks associated with therapy beds, with a focus on the transmission of both bacteria and saliva. The results are in and they will shock you!
