Virus protection integrated into reclining bath
Gainsborough Specialist Bathrooms, a specialist UK bath manufacturer, has introduced BioCote antimicrobial protection into its popular Sentes reclining bath. Infection control is a key element within project implementation, so vulnerable bathers and caregivers benefit from added protection against harmful Superbugs. Gainsborough has the ability to integrate BioCote into its power-assisted baths, which now includes the Sentes reclining bath.
Biocote antimicrobial protection consists of silver-ion technology which is integrated during the GRP manufacturing process, therefore, providing 99.9% 24/7 protection against an array of harmful microbes including Influenza H1N1, E.coli, Salmonella and antibiotic-resistant CPE, CRO, CRE, VRE and MRSA. BioCote cannot be wiped or worn away and hence enhances hygiene management and reduces the possibility of cross-infection. Previously its hi-lo Gentona bath provided this feature whereas now bathers using the Sentes can also benefit.
Peter Eckhardt, Gainsborough Healthcare Group CEO, said: "The introduction of BioCote Superbug-beating technology into our Sentes reclining bath once again reaffirms our position at the forefront of the care industry. As highly respected manufacturers we have a duty of care to vulnerable bathers to protect them from harmful microbes and the risk of infection. The Sentes is a popular choice in the acute sector through its intuitive and ergonomic design – with the addition of BioCote, I'm sure this demand will grow. Gainsborough solutions continue to be the considered choice for CQC excellence, outstanding care and safer moving and handling."
