Surgical table mattress pads are key contributors to patient safety and quality care. So when the manufacturer of Hillrom surgical table mattress pads changed, they kicked off a clinical study to ensure the new pads would live up to our high standards — and yours.
The study’s aims were two-fold:
- • Validate that the newly manufactured mattress pad will outperform the old mattress pad
- • Ensure that the newly manufactured mattress pad will meet industry quality and safety standards for antibacterial properties and preventing fluid ingress
