NEW breathable, antibacterial, non-slip material on range of positioning aids

The non-slip material has been changed on a range of Immedia positioning aids to a softer and more skin-friendly material that is breathable and antibacterial. It still retains it's high friction and is more environmentally friendly.

The new material is OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100 class 1. The STANDARD 100 label is one of the world's best- known labels for textiles tested for harmful substances. It is a biocompatible material so does not produce a toxic or immunological response when exposed to the body or bodily fluids. It complies with ISO 10.993-10 1995, the standard for biological evaluation of medical devices and part 10 tests for irritation and sensitization. The new material has an OEKO-TEX certification and is antibacterial and bi-elastic.

This non-slip material is flame retardant and Crib 5 (Ignition Source 5) compliant, meaning the material has been tested to pass UK Fire Regulations.
