Swash®

Introduction
Many people need assistance in their daily bathing.  Traditionally, caregivers would wash a bedridden care recipient using a wash basin, water, soap, and towels.  This method involves a great deal of time, effort, and stress for both the caretaker and the care recipient.

The Problem
The daily bathing of bedridden care recipients is an established practice.  As various studies have shown, water plays a prominent role in transferring pathogens from one care recipient to another.  Lack of hygiene and cross-contamination is a problem with wash basins.  It's been said that wash basins are a reservoir for bacteria.  Proper skin condition is often an issue for care recipients.  Research shows that the use of soap dries out the skin and affects the skin's barrier function.   Soap is often not completely rinsed off during traditional washing and can cause irritation as well as be a breeding ground for microorganisms. 

The Solution
This Swash concept offers a hygienic, quick, and comfortable body wash solution. Swash uses a system of washcloths or wipes soaked in a special washing lotion which cleanses and protects the skin.  A packet of Swash consists of 8 wash gloves or wipes, sufficient for one complete body wash. Each part of the body is washed with a clean wash glove or wipe, then discarded with no need to rinse nor dry the skin.  This means that instead of having 4 steps involved in a body wash, with Swash there is only one step involved.  Swash contains nourishing components which care for the skin, is pH skin neutral, free of soap, latex, alcohol, and coloring agents.  A swash packet can be heated in a microwave for more comfort, adding to the overall experience of being bathed.

It is exponentially more hygienic, beneficial to the skin, significantly more comfortable for the care recipient and the caretaker, and saves valuable time and material costs (washbasins, soap, washcloths, towels, lotion, laundry costs, and water costs).

The Slide Solution range

Introduction
The task of putting on and taking off compression stockings and tights is often a difficult one, nevertheless, must recur on a daily basis. The Slide Solution is a range of application aids for compression stockings and makes this procedure easier and less taxing. The Slide Solution offers the total solution. Each compression stocking wearer has a suitable product within The Slide Solution product range.

The Problem
For some people, compression stockings are vital and must be put on and taken off on a daily basis.  This can be a problem for both caretakers and patients, as it is a major source of physical strain.  Even patients who are able to carry out the process independently find it increasingly tedious.  This often has an effect on therapy compliance.

The Solution
The Slide Solution products are specifically designed to alleviate the problems experienced with putting on and taking off compression stockings. The Slide Solution products are made from a very smooth material that has been treated with a special coating. This creates an ultra-smooth aid that vastly reduces friction, minimizing physical effort otherwise experienced by caregivers and patients. Its simplicity and ease of use allows patients to enjoy their freedom and independence once again.
