Health risks due to infections, especially MRSA, create enormous costs and frequently result in negative headlines even in countries with high health standards. Infections can significantly extend the duration of hospital stays and also present a serious risk to patients.
The surfaces most at risk of infection on our multicare intensive care bed are now treated with the new Sanitized® hygiene technology, which reduces the settlement of becteria and the risk of infections permanently. It means reduction of bacteria such as staphylococcus aureus and echeria coli. This is especially important on surfaces that are frequently touched and can be contaminated with germs and therefore require ongoing protection between cleaning cycles.

The new hygiene-technology in wissner-bosserhoff hospital beds is based on the active ingredients in silver-containing phosphate glass, which have been directly integrated into the product. The coated material has around-the-clock antimicrobial protection. According to current studies, the active ingredients provide effective protection against especially dangerous microorganisms, such as clostridia or bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics such as MRSA, VRE, and NDM-1.

“Initial tests and use with satisfied customers have shown that the antimicrobial effect is

not impaired by the use of commercially available disinfectants. The ionic agent is highly effective against bacteria. Ions that are harmless to humans are constantly created and attack the metabolic systems of harmful microorganisms,” says Uwe Deckert, Head of Marketing and Product Management at wissner-bosserhoff, speaking about the new technology.

The coating was developed in partnership with Swiss company Sanitized AG. Sanitized AG has more than 60 years of experience in antimicrobial hygiene and material protection for all types of textiles and plastics.
