What makes our bed pads so much better?
The 3 Most Important Performance
Aspects of an Absorbent Pad
1. ABSORPTION SPEED
How quickly the moisture passes through the top layer of the pad, the faster this happens the greater the comfort level.
2. SPREAD RATE
How quickly moisture disperses to the outer perimeter of the pad. The faster moisture moves from the centre of the pad where the patient is positioned, the drier the bed pad will feel.
3. WICKBACK AMOUNT
The percentage of moisture passing back up through the top of the pad to the surface under pressure. A lower percentage indicates a lesser amount of moisture.
