Kimberly-Clark PPE Dispensing System Design to Promote Infection Control

October 25, 2007 – In an effort to help prevent healthcare-associated infections, Kimberly-Clark today launched its PPE Dispensing System to make it simple and convenient for caregivers to sanitize hands and change personal protective equipment (PPE) between patients and in accordance with Centers for Disease Control guidelines.

The ergonomically designed PPE Dispensing System makes infection control products readily accessible and features easy-to-follow icons that promote hand sanitization and proper techniques for donning gowns, gloves and masks. The slim, portable system includes a dispensing unit and module space for storage. Both modules can be used together as a freestanding system, or the dispensing unit can be detached and mounted on a wall.

The system is designed to hold gowns, procedure masks, visor masks, exam gloves, and hand sanitizer. In addition, the PPE Dispensing System features a proprietary dispensing arrangement that helps to prevent contamination during the selection and donning process. Gloves and procedure masks are dispensed using a spring-assisted mechanism that, when combined with distinctly configured box openings, eliminates the need to reach into boxes. Similarly, visor masks are dispensed mask first so that visors stay fingerprint free, and exam gloves are dispensed cuff first, which makes donning faster and easier and helps to prevent contamination of the glove surface.

The system is priced under $1,000 and will be available for purchase this month.
