Surface Medical Announces the Launch of Cleanpatch in U.S.

Surface Medical Inc. has announced the launch of CleanPatch in the U.S. market through a network of leading specialty distributors.

Hospital beds, stretchers and other high-touch surfaces are prone to damage, and have been shown to harbor pathogens that contribute to healthcare-acquired infections. To date, there has been a lack of cost-effective and clinically validated solutions to this problem, with surgical or duct tape being tried unsuccessfully in many facilities. Inspired by a nurse, SMI developed and validated CleanPatch: a first-in-class medical surface repair patch for hospital beds and stretchers that restores damaged mattresses to an intact and hygienic state.

Having completed more than 18 months of testing, including a clinical study in a hospital last year, patent-pending CleanPatch successfully launched in the Canadian market in mid-2013, and more than 60 facilities are using the product as part of their preventative maintenance repair solution on damaged mattresses, stretchers and other surfaces.

CleanPatch a Class 1 medical device under the FDA is now available in the U.S. through a network of regional distributors.
