What is an examination cover ?
An examination cover is a device for medical protection and hygiene. It is used by all health professionals who perform clinical diagnoses on chairs or examination tables: dentists, general practitioners, pediatricians, gynecologists, dermatologists, physiotherapists, etc. Its main role is to provide protection, hygiene and comfort to practitioners and patients alike. In addition to keeping the furniture in the examination rooms in good condition, in particular couches, tables, armchairs and beds, an examination cover limits the risk of cross-contamination between patients and provides them with a certain comfort by avoiding direct contact with furniture upholstery.
Examination covers, whether padded, plasticized, or embossed, are usually sold in the form of pre-cut rolls to facilitate their use by the healthcare professional.
What models are most offered by our DM suppliers?
The examination pad: waterproof and equipped with an absorbent cushion, it provides good protection for the examination furniture. It can be used when examining seated or lying patients. It is therefore ideal for a care establishment wishing to protect either its examination chairs or its bedding. It generally consists of a hydrophilic nonwoven, and a cushion of fibrous cellulose.
The waffle model: thick, resistant and soft, it offers great absorption capacity and provides a good level of comfort to the patient. Its manufacture requires the intervention of a technique of embossing collage to pad in a double thickness a wadding (wool, silk or cotton) which gives it this soft and soft aspect. The waffle examination cover is ideal for healthcare establishments performing long procedures on their patients.
The plasticized model: generally made of waterproof polyethylene, it offers excellent protection. It is a very popular model in certain medical specialties, particularly in gerontology and gynecology.
The sponge model: soft, comfortable and practical, it adapts easily to any type of table or sofa. It is very popular in physiotherapy, because it protects the upholstery of furniture very well and provides great comfort to patients.
The non-woven model: endowed with great softness, consists essentially of fibers without threads or seams. It is ideal for all types of healthcare establishments: physiotherapy, general medicine, osteopathy, aesthetic medicine, etc.
How to choose your exam covers ?
The choice of an examination cover strongly depends on the nature of the activities carried out by the healthcare professional. A good choice necessarily begins with an analysis of the needs which involve taking into account certain selection criteria such as the pre-cut, the weight, the number of folds, the width and the length. As for the smooth wadding models, they are suitable for the majority of medical professions. Laminated and waterproof models are imperative in certain professions, such as gynecology. As for the embossed models, they are generally very resistant and offer good comfort to patients, they are of interest for professions performing long examinations with their patients.
