Infection Control Seating Solutions

Infection control and pressure injury prevention are important issues now more than ever. We at Permobil are committed to providing resources and products to help address these two issues.

Infection Control

When it comes to infection, one absolute is that this virus can be spread from direct contact from a surface to an individual. Utilizing surfaces that can be cleaned and disinfected per CDC protocols can help minimize the risk of spreading the virus. Surfaces made of non-porous materials such as polyvinyl and neoprene do not allow the virus to enter the medium and can be cleaned on the spot with mild detergent and warm water, then disinfected with the bleach and water ratio solution approved by the CDC. 

At Permobil we've created videos to walk you through how to clean our products from power and manual wheelchairs to seating surfaces, back supports, and seating and positioning accessories. Click here to see our full line of cleaning videos.

 

Pressure Injury Prevention

Prior to the pandemic, wheelchair users left the house or their room if living in a community, numerous times a day to sustain a level of activity that helped maintain muscle strength, balance, endurance and allowed for multiple weight shifts or transfers while performing MRADLs. Now wheelchair users are facing a level of immobility as never seen before due to stay-at-home orders or if living in a community being quarantined to a small space to be protected from exposure. 

IF we do nothing to prevent pressure injuries NOW in the middle of the crisis, we will end up with a pressure injury pandemic after the COVID-19 pandemic has ended. 

So, what can we do? As we know, air has been proven to be an excellent medium to reduce the risk of a pressure injury. Permobil’s air cushion solutions have excellent immersion and envelopment properties to minimize the risk of skin and soft tissue injury among these patients being immobilized during the COVID-19 pandemic.

And the best news is they are the same cushions made from the non-porous material that can be easily and effectively cleaned per CDC protocol.
