GRAHAM MEDICAL INTRODUCES ADDED LAYER OF PROTECTION FOR KIDS WITH INHIBX™ ANTIMICROBIAL PEDIATRIC PRODUCTS
Green Bay , WI —Graham Medical, a leading manufacturer and marketer of products for the healthcare industry, has introduced a pediatric line of their successful InhibX™ antimicrobial treated paper products. The pediatric-sized table paper and gowns, printed with the germ-fighting superhero Captain InhibX™ and treated with an antimicrobial agent, provide an added layer of protection against cross-contamination in pediatricians’ offices.
“We are pleased to extend our successful InhibX antimicrobial products to include the care of children,” said Brian Segrin, Vice President, General Manager of Graham Medical. “The InhibX products not only help resist cross-contamination, but the child-friendly Captain InhibX design also reinforces to parents that the pediatrician’s office is taking every precaution to protect their patients from germs.”
The pediatric table paper and gowns feature a free set of Captain InhibX™ temporary tattoos in every case for a limited time, providing another opportunity for caregivers to reinforce other germ-prevention techniques with kids like proper hand-washing. The products are the latest iteration of Graham Medical’s successful InhibX line of antimicrobial paper products that include adult-sized table paper, towels, drapes and gowns.
