A Revolutionary Medical Fabric Technology by NMI Health
Your health was shaken, and you went to the hospital, cherishing hopes that well-trained healthcare professionals armed with advanced medical equipment and very reliable medicaments will effectively cure you of your ailment. In fact, after 2-4 days of your stay in the healthcare facility, your condition worsens dramatically with a rise of new warning symptoms. It is a notorious hospital paradox: instead of recovering, patients start suffering even more.
Hospital-Acquired Infections or HAIs. Also known as nosocomial infections, HAIs are the main and the hardest barrier on your road to recovery. These infections are the 4th main cause of premature mortality in the USA after heart disease, strokes, and oncology. Abscesses, infectious hepatitis, cystitis, urethritis, keratitis, conjunctivitis, fungal diseases, and trachoma are just a few of dozens of infections found in EVERY SINGLE healthcare setting. Apart from being tormenting, hospital infections drastically prolong treatment duration of the primary disease, impair patients’ performance status, and require grotesque much money to get rid of.
A secret den of causative pathogens
Hospitals and healthcare facilities generally evoke associations of something clean, safe, and sterile. Actually, these establishments never put enough efforts to stop the spread of malignant organisms throughout the health care setting. Soft surfaces fabrics like curtains, bed linen, and personnel’s working cloth are always overlooked or cared insufficiently. This means that virulent germs get an ideal environment to live, reproduce, mutate, and contaminate both patients and healthcare personnel during frequent contact.
This negligence encourages a rapid transmission of deadly microbes throughout the medical facility. Of course, you can argue claiming all hospital textiles undergo regular laundering and disinfection, but these practices are scarcely effective because fabrics begin to re-contaminate immediately after being put into use. And after all, if there were strict control over hospital fabrics and textiles, there would be no bacterial contamination of soft surfaces, and, consequently, no hospital-related infections. But they prevail.
NMI Health to Disrupt the Paradox of Hospitals
NMI Health is the first healthcare product development and distribution company in the USA that has become concerned about a vital problem of prevention of hospital-acquired infections through environmental fabrics and clothing. We are proud to introduce SilverCare Plus, an unprecedented antimicrobial medical fabric that can neutralize 99.9% of pathogens hidden in medical soft surfaces.
What makes SilverCare Plus so powerful? Its almightiness comes from the use of innovative X-Static® yarn made of 99.9% pure natural silver. X-Static® technology is based on an idiosyncratic manufacturing process that permanently bonds pure metallic silver to the surface of flexible polymers which compose this innovative textile yarn. We weave this silver-enhanced thread into all our medical fabrics to produce high-performance textiles and clothing that are subject neither to the growth of bacteria nor to the development of odor.
SilverCare Plus bacterial fabrics were created to prevent both soft surface infesting and secondary transmission of disease-inducing microorganisms from and between patients, health care staff, and visitors. Silver Care Plus fabrics with X-Static textile yarn wards off 99.9% of pathogens on the medical textile, significantly decreasing environmental contamination and, thus, minimizing the threat of developing hospital-acquired infections in patients and doctors alike.
The antibacterial technology behind X-Static passed through numerous pre-marketing tests and trials and always proved its absolute safety for users and unfailing effectiveness against malicious microbes, eventually earning the title of the industry-standard. Pure silver is known for its great antibacterial performance, and the R&D team from X-Static decided to leverage this property of natural silver to fabricate groundbreaking X-StaticÂ® textile yarn that is, along with being antimicrobial, adds extra warmth, softness, and durability to each product manufactured by us.
SilverCare PlusÂ® antimicrobial performance fabrics have lots of applications. From clinics, emergency services, and surgery centers to rehabilitation centers, hospice homes, and urgent care facilities – SilverCare Plus textiles will be essential in every healthcare segment where bacterial management is of primary importance. Silver yarn never loses its textile and antibacterial properties, so all SilverCare Plus fabrics will be effectively fending off detrimental microbes for many years to come while easily standing the test of regular cleaning procedures such as laundering, sterilization, and relocation.
The product portfolio of innovative SilverCare Plus medical textile is extremely versatile and covers all fabric-related needs of any given health care environment. From lab coats and surgery overalls to patient gowns, curtains, and bed linen – we offer the most comprehensive range of medical fabrics and clothing for a variety of end uses within healthcare settings where soft surfaces may present the main source of pathogen microbes. Meant to help and protect, NMI Health is committed to continuing its research and development work in the sphere of medicine, and this means that in the obvious future, we will give this world even more useful solutions and technologies and, consequently, save more lives.
