HOGY`s unique 5-layer precaution set to be made available in India by Medinippon

Chennai, Sep.24.,Medinippon Healthcare Pvt Ltd an Indian company with Japanese equity has introduced in India,a Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) made with Japanese technology for protecting the Healthcare personnel from life threatening contagious diseases such as Ebola hemorrhagic fever. The PPE is made of a unique Tigalyer&Surrem technology by HOGY Incorporation, Japan.

The Protective Gear comes with significantly high fluid and pathogen barrier while allowing the wearer to comfortably work wearing it. The water repellant nature of the PPE and the anti-fog coated goggles give the utmost protection and comfort to the doctors and paramedical staff while handling contagious materials or screening people in the airport or patients with suspicious infection in the hospital or isolation units said Mr. K.Balasubramaniam of Medinippon.

Sterile surgical Gowns with five layer Tigalyer&Surrem finishing for surgeons and scrub nurses will also be soon made available in India said Mr. Sasaki, Technical Director, Hogy Incorporation, Japan. In Japan 80% of the surgeons and nurses use HOGY sterile gowns during surgical procedures and the Japanese Healthcare personnel who handle contagious materials use our PPE because there are no Pin holes like the regular machine stitched gowns.

Our gowns are sealed by ultrasound technology and therefore the body fluids will not come into contact with the surgeons and scrub nurses, if they use HOGY products, providing them a total protection from life threatening viral diseases such as Ebola which spread by body fluids, if the wearer sticks to the appropriate wearing, removing and disposing protocols, he added.

According to Mr. Sasayama, Global sales head of HOGY, Japan, the demand for their product after Ebola outbreak has increased tremendously and physicians performing interventional procedures such as Endoscopy also have started using the protective wear nowadays.
