July 15, 2008 - Gaymar Industriesï¿½ redesigned T/Pump series of products used for localized temperature therapy offer both cold and warm therapy in a single unit, and new T/Flash technology allows the T/Pump to provide periodic temperature changes.
Two versions of the T/Pump are now available: a Classic Model designed for long-term care and home care environments, and a Professional Model reportedly suitable for all healthcare settings.
Advancements include temperature and treatment time settings that require less nurse intervention; a new handle with a large grip area that improves portability for busy clinical staff as well as elderly patients; and a translucent, large-capacity reservoir that makes the water level readily visible.
Compact and portable, the T/Pump unit heats water to 95 to 107 degrees Fahrenheit (35 to 42 degrees Celsius) that is circulated to a Mulï¿½Tï¿½Pad placed at the treatment site to provide heating therapy to a specific area of a patientï¿½s body. When cooling therapy is needed, the T/Pump can cool water to 50 degrees Fahrenheit (10 degrees Celsius). The company says the T/Pump uses microprocessors to prevent malfunctions and assure proper operation.
The Gaymar T/Pump Professional Model offers an additional temperature setting; 20-minute, 30-minute or continuous therapy cycle times; and a lock-out switch to prevent inadvertent changes.
An optional, four-wheeled T/Pump Stand is also available to facilitate easy transport of the T/Pump unit from room to room, with storage for Mulï¿½Tï¿½Pads and accessories supplied in an attached wire basket.
Gaymarï¿½s Clik-Tite connectors attach the T/Pumpï¿½s hoses to the Mulï¿½Tï¿½Pads and permit two separate pads to be used with one unit, allowing treatment for multiple sites on the same patient. Mulï¿½Tï¿½Pads maintain their effectiveness even when folded to conform to the part of the body where therapy is needed, reportedly allowing precise therapeutic benefits to be delivered to the area of treatment. The pads are durable and easily cleaned, providing multiple uses by the same patient and often for the duration of his or her stay. Available with nonwoven fabric or polymer pad surfaces, Mulï¿½Tï¿½Pads are suitable for dry or moist therapy.
