Vinyl upholstery is a common material used in the production of many soft surfaces in healthcare, including wheelchairs, examination tables and geriatric chairs. Healthcare assessments have revealed that vinyl is frequently damaged in many facilities today, ranging from small punctures to extensive cracking. Current solutions to address this problem include purchasing new equipment, which is expensive, and reupholstery, which is inconvenient.
CleanPatch®-V is the first Health Canada and FDA registered Class 1 medical device specifically designed to restore damaged vinyl upholstery to an intact and hygienic state. CleanPatch®-V has been extensively tested.
Vinyl equipment is easily damaged from daily wear and tear, and it is important to repair damage quickly. When vinyl equipment is damaged, it cannot be properly disinfected and may harbor dangerous pathogens, increasing the risk of HAIs among patients.
CleanPatch®-V is designed to repair vinyl quickly, easily and safely — and for a fraction of the cost of replacement. CleanPatch®-V should be used to address the following types of damage:
- Tears / Cuts
- Flat Areas < 6″ (15cm)
- Over an Edge (two sides only, no seams or corners)
- Previously taped
To properly maintain the integrity of the CleanPatch®-V, DO NOT CUT.
WHEN IS REPAIR NOT RECOMMENDED?
Not all damaged vinyl equipment should be repaired. Equipment replacement is recommended if any of the following is observed:
