Therapeutic Pillow Designed With Infection Control in Mind

Toronto, Canada, October 15, 2009- Therapeutica® Incorporated, a pre-eminent manufacturer of pillows and back supports will formally introduce its healthcare pillow to markets outside of North America at MEDICA, the 41st World Forum for Medicine, in Dusseldorf, Germany from November 18-21, 2009.

Designed and tested by ergonomic experts, the patented Therapeutica pillow to be unveiled at the annual trade fair and conference meets the need for back sleeping support which extends beyond the normal contour of the neck. The neck and upper back move together biomechanically and so should be supported together at rest. The pillow’s unique thoracic wedge provides support for the upper back while the occipital cavity holds the cervical spine in stable, neutral posture. The pillow also helps position the neck and head to allow critical air passages to open, making breathing easier. Since its design limits the ability of the patient to roll over, the pillow promotes safer healing.

The pillow is covered in a sewn cast coated, polyurethane polyester fabric that is anti bacterial and anti fungal – benefiting infection control. The hydrostatic burst strength is 75 psi and the cover can be easily wiped clean with disinfectant. For healthcare situations where blood transfer is a factor, buyers can order a version suited to their specifications that comes with an impervious “welded” cover.

In short, the Therapeutica healthcare pillow addresses a healthcare facility’s need to support and stabilize its patients while keeping infection control in mind.

Therapeutica makes all its products using a custom-blended foam unique to Therapeutica. The company manufactures its goods using an injection-molded process resulting in high-quality, supportive products. All come with a five year manufacturers’ warranty.

Therapeutica’s simple aim is to help both the patient and the healthcare professional.
