BreatheDry Absorbent Pad
BreatheDRY Pads are white, soft, waterproof flat sheets with an absorbent layer and a breathable underside that stops fluid getting through to equipment below and wicks away moisture to protect the patient's skin. These absorbent bed pads are designed to be breathable and to manage climate control and preserve skin integrity.
The BreatheDRY Standard has a high absorbency capacity, absorbing 3.2 liters of fluid. The BreatheDRY Protect absorbs an incredible 6.4 liters of fluid.
The BreatheDRY pad draws in moisture, locks it away from the skin and is quickly dry to the touch. A total of 99.87% of moisture is locked in after five minutes. Not only does is dry quickly, but it also reduces odors due to highly absorbent polymers encapsulated in the core. The BeatheDRY dries faster and is drier overall when compared to traditional disposable bed pads and reusable bed pads.
Your costs are reduced with BreatheDRY protecting your bedding and patient slings. This results in less linen changes per shift, and lower laundry expenses. Not only does this reduce your number of linen changes, but it also reduces your cost of products because the BreatheDRY can be used multiple times before changing due to its high absorbency capacity, drying rate, and odor reduction. The pad typically costs less than the cost to machine wash linens and reusable bed pads. Less time spent on changing incontinence products can boost staff morale and contribute towards lower turnover rates, thus reducing your recruiting, hiring, and training costs, while maintaining higher levels of care.

Applications & Features
Breathable - The MVTR Moisture Vapour Transmission Rate (MVTR) measures the passage of water vapour through a substance. The higher the MVTR rate the more breathable the product. BreatheDRY is 425.5g / m2 / 24h / 74F. Compared to 32.6 and 19.8 with other traditional bed pads. (Test method ASTM E96-2012).
Keeps skin dry (preserves the microclimate) the moisture balance of skin and reducing or eliminating the risk of moisture related skin damage is paramount in maintaining skin integrity.
Soft and flat, it can be used in direct contact with skin.
Reduced odours due to highly absorbent polymers encapsulated in the core.
No added pressure - A independent pressure study proved that there was no additional pressure load on a patients skin when using BreatheDR. Tests were conducted at 55 lbs, 110lbs, and 220 lbs.
