Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) December 21, 2013
Fearful that blood-pressure cuffs could be transmitting infectious diseases from one patient to the next, an inventor from North Hollywood, Calif., developed the patent-pending SKIN GUARD.
The accessory safeguards the patient's skin from cross-contamination. The unit protects against germs, which keeps the patient from developing infections and rashes. This provides added peace of mind. Additionally, the invention is easy to use and features a hygienic design.
The inventor's professional experience and personal observations inspired the idea. "I am in the medical field business, and the idea came to my mind when I went to the hospital to visit my friend," he said. "I saw that medical professionals take a patient's blood pressure with no protection for the patient in place."
The original design was submitted to the Los Angeles office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
