Role of the pillow in the chain of cross-infection
Dr Duncan Bain and David Woolfson suggest in their research “Pillows: The Forgotten Fomite” that the pillow is an often-overlooked link in a chain of cross-infection: "Standard pillows become colonised by organisms as environmental contamination takes place via the stitching holes and fabric of the pillows. This is particularly acute in multiple users bedding environments like hotels, hostels and hospitals, but also when travelling or at home".
Pillows present an ideal reservoir for pathogens, for a number of reasons - the porosity of the filling material provides a high surface area for colonisation, and a high capillarity for moisture retention. Favourable conditions are provided also by the sleeper: ideal temperature for incubation, humidity, and nutrition by body fluids and inoculation by the nose, mouth, eyes, ears, and hair of the patient.
Washing your pillow regularly is a partial solution as not all pathogens die, pillow loses its' shape and additionally there is waste of water. But there is alternative option.
Virus and allergen free pillow for your risk-free rest and recovery
Filtered bedding by SleepAngel, is an innovation originally created for healthcare. It is a hermetically sealed cushioning device with PneumaPure filter technology to fight healthcare-associated infections (cross-infection between patients) as it stays clean inside and external cover can be disinfected without dry cleaning or machine wash (or the need of additional protective covers).
No our medical innovation is adapted to be used at homes and hospitality. SleepAngel pillow is an effective barrier to allergens, pathogens, viruses (incl. Coronavirus), mould and bugs (bed bugs, dust mites).
Clinically clean comfort
As there are no access points for pathogens, the pillow stays clean inside and is as easily cleaned as hard surfaces around us.
SleepAngel bedding technology is clinically and scientifically tested and proven by leading laboratories in EU and US, is already used in healthcare and hospitality around the world.
