Graham Medical Introduces First-Ever ComfortOne™ Disposable Wheelchair Pad Cover
New-to-the-market product offers economical and comfortable solution for long-term care facilities and their residents
GREEN BAY, WI – Graham Medical, a leading marketer and manufacturer of single-use medical products, introduces the ComfortOne™ Disposable Wheelchair Pad Cover. The new-to-the-market product offers long-term care facilities a great cost- and time-effective alternative to stocking and laundering expensive reusable covers. The ComfortOne™ Cover also provides convenience while helping to improve infection control.
The ComfortOne™ Cover secures tightly to the pad and the wheelchair. The fluidresistant, non-woven material provides protection for the pressure reduction pad. Measuring 22 inches wide by 23 inches in depth, its sewn elastic ends offer a universal, secure fit on all standard wheelchair pads. The ComfortOne™ Cover holds pads up to 19 inches wide by 19 inches long by 4 inches thick.
The cover is extremely soft and comfortable while the material prevents shear and friction, and also avoids interfering with the effectiveness of the cushion function. This product is an innovative solution for nursing homes, hospices and home-health care.
“This type of product is certainly welcomed by our organization and residents alike,” said Amy Liebergen, nursing support services, Woodside Nursing Home in Green Bay, Wis. “After using samples for some time, we quickly discovered the advantages to the singleuse pad cover. Not only are there economical and time-effective benefits, the cover is also extremely comfortable and sanitary for our residents.”
Contrary to using reusable covers, the disposable cover prevents the time-consuming task of laundering and drying while also eliminating the need to stock expensive reusable covers. The ComfortOne™ Cover is economical with an MSRP of a little more than one dollar per cover; reusable covers typically run $30 to $70 each.
“We participated in detailed conversations with nursing homes, long-term care facilities, health care providers and medical equipment suppliers about the benefits of a disposable wheelchair pad cover,” said Cathy Schuch, marketing manager with Graham Medical. “The information gathered through our research was instrumental in designing a product to meet the needs and requirements of facilities and residents.”
Graham Medical will feature their ComfortOne™ Disposable Wheelchair Pad Cover at Medtrade, Booth 3566, and AAHSA, in October, both in Orlando, Fla.
