HoverTech International
With the HoverMatt® Single-Patient Use (SPU) air transfer system, lateral transfers and positioning are easier and safer for both caregivers and patients. A cushion of air beneath the inflated HoverMatt SPU reduces the force required to move a patient by 80-90% to improve caregiver safety, while also eliminating friction and reducing skin shear for the patient. Highly breathable fabric facilitates evaporation and minimizes heat and moisture on the patient’s skin, allowing the HoverMatt SPU to remain under the patient for all-day care in compliance with pressure injury prevention clinical practice guidelines.
Stealth Belt
Stealth Belt is celebrating it's 10th anniversary, and we are proud to have helped tens-of-thousands of patients in over 50 countries, “Go Anywhere. Do Anything.” Whether they're used for running errands or marathons, Stealth Belts are designed to meet the demands of any lifestyle. Expertly crafted with high-performance fabrics, Stealth Belts apply gentle pressure to the adhesive of the ostomy appliance and hold the weight of the pouch as it fills to reduce the chances of a leak. Stealth Belts conceal ostomy appliances with stylish and low-profile designs, to help patients regain confidence and live more comfortably after surgery.
