Underpad that stays put.

Underpad That Stays Put

A new "Sta-Put" underpad system that stays firmly in place and does not shift or bunch up like other underpads has been introduced by Medical Disposables. The pad utilizes two reusable straps that secure the underpad to the bed. The straps, positioned between the mattress and bed springs, have low profile buttons at each end that are affixed to the four corners of the bed pad. The result is a superabsorbent pad that lies flat, assuring comfort for the user. Other benefits include a reduction in linen usage, less nursing time changing linens and cleaning beds and a higher quality of patient care.

The Sta-Put pads, which are 25 x 36 inches, contain Poly-Fresh polymer, which offers extra absorbency and neutralizes the effects of ammonia on the skin. The pads are durable, won't tear when wet and are no more expensive than multiple conventional pads or incontinence briefs.
