Redruth, Cornwall United Kingdom (PressExposure) April 20, 2011 -- How can someone clean and bath without water? Well it seems that an innovative new idea offers just that and is ideal for carers and nurses who have lack of facilities or where the person being cared for is severely disabled or disadvantaged.
Not a new idea, granted, but waterless bathing products that allows you to wash without any water is a genial idea. Since 1948 and originally developed for the NASA space programme, they are liquids, not powders, and are designed for long term use. Highly innovative in approach and formulated specifically for the elderly, disabled, those who have recently had an operation or suffer from, Dementia, Parkinson's, MS and Arthritis.
This latest venture into infection control within the healthcare sectors, including domiciliary care is ideal for people who find it hard to get in and out of the bath, to lean over a sink or bath and wash their hair, or even when showering may prove difficult. All the products have no alcohol and range from shampoos to all over body bathing wipes. The ready to use solutions are effective and safe for all ages providing personal hygienic care and infection control. This is good news for the reduction of diseases and for controlling the spread of infectious bacteria, as The Independent recently reported that the re-emergence of the H2N2 influenza strain is on the increase in the US which is widely passed through birds and pigs. And out of 90 people tested, those under the age of 50 had little or no immunity to the strain whatsoever.
The bathing alternative products are enriched with Aloe Vera and Vitamin E and are documented to Kill: E. Coli, Staph, Salmonella & Strep. Offering Hypo-allergenic cloths which are disposable, they can clean, deodorise and remove all odours to leave skin refreshed. They are also effective, easy to use and suitable for all parts of the body.
A perianal wash that cleans urine, emesis and faecal matter is also available, making it even more viable to the nursing and caring sectors. This type of waterless cleaning will also advantageous to campers, festivals, any of the Forces and travelling, or anywhere where water is hard to come by.
