May 21, 2007 - Patient Comfort Systems Inc. recently announced its new product line of medical imaging table pads and positioners featuring infection-resistant design with permanent antimicrobial agents, created in part to address the growing threat of infections spread by contact, which includes aggressive antibiotic-resistant bacteria, or “super bugs,” such as MRSA (Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus).
To maximize infection control further, Patient Comfort Systems pads incorporate ultra-strong fabric along with sewn and welded seams to protect core material from bodily fluids. This construction also prevents cracking and tearing at the pad corners, where exposure is greatest. Both the TEMPUR pad cores and cover fabrics are manufactured using a permanent antimicrobial agent to inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria. The vapor and moisture-impervious cover allow fluids to pass through it and can be cleaned with any standard approved hospital disinfectant.
