SleepAngel was invited to attend the Arab Health Show 2014 as part of a wider recognition in the region of the need for improved medical barrier bedding. Infection Control and Tissue Viability staff from regional hospitals met with SleepAngel representatives to learn about advances in medical bedding equipment and hygiene practices which reduce contamination and infection risks. The recent MERS outbreak in the region has increased the focus on effective, medical device solutions to help to minimise the risk of contaminated bedding cross infecting patients during the patient hospital experience. SleepAngel is negotiating with a small number of leading hospitals and medical distribution partners in the Middle East region and plans to bring a programme of medical bedding products and training solutions to regional hospitals.
