Patent Issued for Apparel and Textile Fabric with Antimicrobial Properties
Date:5/6/2013

RIDGELAND, Miss. (PRWEB) May 06, 2013

Bert Rubinsky, CEO of Medical Grade Innovations (MGI), is announcing he has been issued a patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office on fabric with antimicrobial properties. The patent number is 13/207,392.

The fabric, “B++” will first be used to create bactericidal incontinent pads, sheets, pillow cases, patient gowns and operating room apparel and sold to medical institutions and facilities through MGI. Bactericidal is defined as “preventing infection by inhibiting the growth or action of microorganisms.”

“Our goal is to minimize the bacterial pollution in our medical environments. Just because the apparel and textiles within the hospital look clean, doesn’t mean they actually are. Bacterial pathogens on conventional fabrics used in health care settings can grow by 10-fold over a 24-hour period,” said Bert Rubinsky, CEO and founder, Medical Grade Innovations. “There have been many great strides in best practice guidelines and preventative care, but we must also focus on the soft surfaces, such as the patient bed, patient, and health care professional to reduce the incidence of pathogens leading to infections.”

Data from as far back as 1969*, shows that conventional fabric – poly-cotton used by medical institutions and clinics contributes to bacterial pathogen growth. In addition, bacterial pathogens can survive on poly-cotton up to 60 days if unwashed. Independent tests done at Accugen Laboratories showed that B++ fabric was 99.9% effective against inhibiting leading hospital acquired infections including Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, E. coli, Klebsiella and Pseudomonas.

“We have our police officers in bullet proof vests and our firefighters in fire retardant clothing. Our chicken farmers even follow strict operational procedures when it comes to apparel,” said Rubinsky. “Our medical professionals and those seeking medical care deserve at least the same protection.”

Medical Grade Innovations also sells a bacteriostatic scrub, doctor coat, and necktie. All Medical Grade Innovations products are made from fabric that has a longer lifecycle and in some cases, lower wash and dry temperatures than what is used in health care today, leading to long-term cost savings.
