DryMax 2.4 is a SUPER absorbent single-use mat with a high absorption capacity. Despite being only a few millimetres thick, the mat absorbs and can contain large quantities of fluids and also bacteria. DryMax 2.4 is capable of absorbing up to 9 litres of water or 3.5 litres of saline solution.
It can be placed under the operating table, in front of the feet of the surgical team. Another application is on the examination table of wet examinations – under the patient with a sterile sheet over – to collect flushing liquid, preventing soaking of the patient and equipment. The cloth does not leak or drip as the absorbed fluids remain inside and are turned into a gel. Since both liquid and bacteria are retained in the gel this product contributes to the infection control of operations and examinations.
The result is a drier, more hygienic, safer and pleasant working environment – also meaning less time and money spent on cleaning. Depending on the fluid absorbed – the mat can be disposed of in the usual manner. Turn-around time is reduced considerably, allowing for more operations to be carried out.
