TouchDRY Plus


A moisture management pad with breathable backing

TouchDRY® Breathable Absorbent Pads are a white, soft flat sheet with an absorbent layer and a waterproof underside that stops fluid getting through to equipment below and wicks away moisture to protect the patient’s skin.

How does TouchDRY® benefit expecting mothers?:

  • Breathable - so no sweating - MVTR of TouchDRY® is 408g / m² / 24h / 23oC (Test method ASTM E96-2012). Moisture Vapour Transmission Rate (MVTR) is a measure of the passage of water vapour through a substance.
  • Keeps skin dry - preserves the microclimate - the moisture balance of skin and reducing or eliminating the risk of moisture related skin damage is paramount in maintaining skin integrity (see independent report and testing).
  • Skin care - it can be used in direct contact with skin.
  • Reduced odours due to highly absorbent polymers encapsulated in the core.
  • Latex Free

How does it benefit your obstetric department and staff?:

  • High fluid handling capacity of TouchDRY® – 8.1litres m² / 24h (AWTA 62) - reduce spills.
  • Economic impact – alleviates strikethrough, effectively reducing linen changes and protects equipment.
  • Always available for staff - no waiting for laundry.
  • Compatible with all pressure redistribution surfaces - assisting underlying micro-climate therapies.
  • Maintains structural integrity when saturated
  1. Soft, non-woven air-permeable top layer is gentle on healthy skin as well as skin of the very young to the very old plus vulnerable and fragile skin during periods of illness
  2. The super absorbent inner layer allows body fluids to be taken away from the skin. The fluids are locked in the inner layer to keep skin dry
  3. The breathable, waterproof backing assists the containment of fluid for safe disposal
