Couch roll provides a hygiene layer between your patient and couch and because they are paper, once finished with, any germs and bodily fluids like sweat are easily disposed of. This minimises the spread of pathogens and helps maintain a clean, hygienic setting in your clinic.
Couch Rolls are a popular paper product and they are designed to provide a cheap and environmentally friendly approach to keeping surfaces clean and hygienic. Just like other paper disposable products such as Centrefeed, Couch Roll can also be used as a wiping product either on their own, or with domestic antibacterial sprays and solutions, further increasing it’s usefulness.
Why Do We Need Couch Roll?
Our Couch Roll is made from a strong GSM 2 ply paper, with a high wet strength to make sure it does not rip or break away easily. Packaged in boxes, each roll is individually wrapped for increased hygiene. This makes it the preferred choice for medical, health and beauty industries. The term Couch Roll comes from the fact that the paper is pulled over the seat/bed, (also known as couch) that the patient or customer lies on. This creates a barrier between the patient and the couch. The roll is generally placed at one end of the couch, and then pulled over the couch to the desired length. The selected length of the Couch Roll is then ripped off using the perforated sections. At Physiosupplies we provide strong perforations with our Couch Roll products. As the product is perforated, it will still rip, however by making the perforation stronger, the patient is a lot less likely to rip the perforations when moving compared to some other Couch Roll products on the market. Once yo have finished treating the patient, the Couch Roll sheets can then be discarded in a recycling bin. The couch is then cleaned and a new sheet of the Couch Roll can be applied. By including the sheet of Couch Roll you are greatly lowering the risk of any contamination between patients.
