Hygienic products are designed with cleanliness and safety in mind. They are typically made with materials that are easy to clean and do not harbor germs, making them ideal for use in hospitals, clinics, and other healthcare settings. Soft touch materials, on the other hand, are designed to be comfortable and gentle on the skin. Products designed by therapists are created with input from healthcare professionals who have expertise in a particular field, such as physical therapy or occupational therapy. These products are often used to help patients with special needs and specific disabilities.
Our Soft-Touch material outer skin prevents the seating and positioning products from peeling or tearing and also prevents liquids from penetrating the core. The soft-to-the-touch inner core is a specially formulated foam that allows for children to sit comfortably for longer periods of time.
