As standard, the robust but gentle feeling high frequency welded cover, complete with non-slip base, provides total infection control consideration whilst allowing *repeated cleaning without deterioration.

Prolonged labour periods can often result in skin reddening, where our specialist foam and cover selections work with modern re-positioning practices. Our bespoke foam ensures that where required, a specific application to most birthing bed designs is available.
