Elberton, GA (PRWEB) July 06, 2013
Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution agreement with Salk, Incorporated, to offer their HaloShield® Quilted Reusable and Washable Underpads to a wider consumer marketplace. Headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts, Salk has been designing and manufacturing reusable adult incontinence products for over fifty years. With the goal of restoring dignity and quality of life to individuals who suffer from incontinence, Salk consistently meets this objective by creating products that are comfortable, durable, highly absorbent and are constructed with superior quality materials and craftsmanship.
As a revolutionary development in antimicrobial protection, the HaloShield® Quilted Reusable and Washable Underpad that Rehabmart now offers from Salk eliminates the embarrassment, odors and hassles commonly associated with urinary incontinence and bladder control loss. Offering a fresh solution to the problems of urine odor, the germ and odor killing power of this reusable underpad is renewed with every wash using chlorine bleach. The special HaloShield® coating grabs the chlorine molecules during laundering, and anchors them to its surface. It binds the chlorine molecules in a ‘one to one’ relationship, fully charging the HaloShield® coating to hold enough chlorine to kill 99.9% of all odor causing bacteria within ten minutes.
Providing 100% waterproof-protection for bedding and chairs, the latex-free HaloShield® is available in a variety of sizes to easily accommodate any surface. As a healthier choice for the environment, and a more economical one than disposables, using these innovative, reusable underpads will not only eliminate the embarrassing and unpleasant odors that can result from incontinence issues, but will also save the user a lot of money in the long run.
“We are honored to introduce the HaloShield® Quilted Reusable and Washable Underpads to more consumers,” said Hulet Smith, OTR/L, MBA and CEO of Rehabmart. “Reliable and effective, the super absorbent inner layer quickly traps fluids, while the ultra-soft top layer wicks away moisture to keep users dry and comfortable. The odor-causing bacteria are simply washed away by using chlorine bleach during laundering, and the underpads are re-charged and ready to be used again. Non-irritating for sensitive skin, the HaloShield® is a wonderful break-through in the incontinence field, and we are very proud to offer this, and all of the helpful garments and products for incontinence from Salk to our customers at Rehabmart.com.”
