BioArmour™ Blood Pressure Cuff Shield
The BioArmour™ Blood Pressure Cuff Shield is a disposable antimicrobial hygienic barrier that attaches to the blood pressure cuff to prevent direct contact of the patient’s skin with the cuff itself. The latex-free shield material is composed of a sustainable biopolymer that is impregnated with antimicrobial and antifungal agents to mitigate the propagation of pathogens. Contaminant pathogens are mitigated by the blood pressure cuff shield, allowing for multi-patient use over a 24 hour period.
Healthcare facilities present repeated opportunities for the transmission of infectious pathogens from patient-to-patient, via direct and indirect routes including contaminated surfaces and equipment. The growing concern of healthcare professionals in regard to antibiotic resistant pathogens is creating an increase in desire for disposable hygienic barriers for commonly used equipment, such as blood pressure cuffs (Dialysis & Transplantation, 2002; 31(5): 337-341).
The easy to use and cost effective BioArmourTM Blood Pressure Cuff Shield will allow hospitals and healthcare facilities to continue to implement and demonstrate proactive measures for infectious disease reduction and control. The product is being made available to the European and select international markets. The product launch within the US market is projected to be by summer 2015, once FDA clearance has been obtained. Once available, the BioArmour™ Blood Pressure Cuff Shield will allow healthcare professionals to heighten the level of patient safety, globally.
