Cuff-Guard


Cuff-Guard®

According to the European Centre for Disease Control (ECDC) over 4 million patients are estimated to acquire a healthcare-associated infection (HAI) in the EU each year. The number of deaths occurring as a direct consequence of these infections is estimated to be at least 37,000 and these infections are thought to contribute to an additional 110,000 deaths each year. The cost per infection to the health service can be as much as €33,000

Bowen Medical has developed a cost efficient way to prevent cross-contamination of blood pressure cuffs, this unique and innovative product is called Cuff-Guard®.

Cuff-Guard® is the only disposable cuff cover in the world, unlike disposable cuffs that are reused from patient to patient and have been documented to carry the same disease load as conventional cuffs. Cuff-Guard® was designed to be used on a single patient - then discarded.

Cuff-Guard® will provide the protection from cross-contamination your patients and staff deserve.

CuffGuard® is designed to be a single use disposable cover for blood pressure cuffs. It is easy to use and provides a clean surface for your patients and healthcare workers
