BioCote virus protection integrated into Sentes reclining bath from Gainsborough


Superbug-busting protection built into popular care home product

Gainsborough Specialist Bathrooms (GSB) has introduced world-class BioCote antimicrobial protection into its popular Sentes reclining bath.

Part of the Gainsborough Healthcare Group, GSB provides a holistic programme of support through its G360 services, which deliver complete accessible bathrooms and wetrooms for care environments – from concept to completion and beyond.

And infection control is a key element within project implementation, so vulnerable bathers and caregivers benefit from added protection against harmful superbugs.

Gainsborough has the ability to integrate world-class BioCote into its power assisted baths, which now includes the Sentes reclining bath.

Biocote antimicrobial protection consists of silver-ion technology which is integrated during the GRP manufacturing process; therefore providing 99.9% 24/7 protection against an array of harmful microbes including Influenza H1N1, E.coli, Salmonella and antibiotic-resistant CPE, CRO, CRE, VRE and MRSA.

BioCote cannot be wiped or worn away and enhances hygiene management while reducing the possibility of cross infection.

The Sentes from Gainsborough is an ultra-efficient reclining bathing system, suitable for long-term care and acute care environments.

Its power-assisted tilting design, with sculpted seat, provides support and enhanced comfort for those with more-complex postural requirements.

In a seated position, bathers are gently immersed in temperature-controlled water via tilt-in-space reclining. And the vertical-raising, side-entry door provides easy-access for semi-ambulant bathers and those who require hoist transfers.

Peter Eckhardt, Gainsborough Healthcare Group chief executive, said: "The introduction of BioCote superbug-beating technology into our Sentes reclining bath once again reaffirms our position at the forefront of the care industry.

“We have a duty of care to vulnerable bathers to protect them from harmful microbes and the risk of infection and the Sentes is a popular choice in the acute sector through its intuitive and ergonomic design.
