New Active Pressure Care range launches
A subsidiary of Millbrook Industries, Ultimate Healthcare, has launched a new active range of dynamic and alternating pressure care mattresses.
The company says that the new range of 10 alternating mattresses aims to reset the benchmark on quality in the pressure care sector, taking into account the company’s receipt of quality standard ISO13485 in 2015.
Previously a reseller and manufacturer for a number of pressure care brands, Ultimate Healthcare reviewed its design and manufacturing processes over an 18 month period, as part of the ISO 13485 procedure to certify the mattresses in the product range as Class IIa medical devices.
A key change that the company made to its premises in preparation for the ISO certification was to install a specially-constructed testing area. Several test benches are sited on a new mezzanine floor, where each mattress undergoes a thorough testing process to verify the quality.
Managing Director Lee French explains: “In a sector where the majority of our competitors are Class I (self-certified), we were keen to make a difference. So we have completely overhauled our development processes in line with ISO 13485 and we are now analysing market trends and feedback data and responding to actual customer demands. This is how the whole industry should be working but few can honestly say they are working this way. So, we’re proud to be among the first to put our flag in the ground, make this claim and be able to substantiate it with Class IIa certification for our pressure care mattresses.”
Lee says that further product ranges are due to be introduced over the next 1-2 years, with these enhanced product features becoming standard across the range.
