SmartCells Fall Protection Flooring Used by Aleydis Centers
SATECH Inc. today announced a relationship with Aleydis Centers to provide its patented SmartCell’s® fall protection flooring for Aleydis Centers across the
“The Aleydis Centers and SATECH’s patented fall protection flooring are a perfect match to provide an aging
population with a safe infection control environment,” said Bryce Betteridge, president of SATECH.
“In addition, our fall protection flooring will reduce liability for assisted living facilities and most importantly,
preserve the dignity of residents for routine healthcare.”
According to Dr. Stuart Boekeloo, president of Aleydis Centers, the SATECH fall protection flooring provides a
significant benefit because it provides a safe surface in a safe room. “Infection control is challenging
in many facilities, and is inadvertently spread through common cleaning practices,” said Boekeloo.
After podiatrists, mobile dental units and others provide services in resident’s rooms or common
areas — as is the industry norm — it simply facilitates the spread of infection. When rotary
instruments are used and well-meaning housekeeping staff sweep or vacuum to clean up, it
increases the problem of contamination. Aleydis and SATECH are working together to not only
provide fall protection flooring, but also the most infection free surfaces possible.
“We needed a safe, easily-cleaned fall protection flooring product for residents from their wheelchairs to treatment
chairs,” said Boekeloo. “When we found out about each other it was a natural fit. My goal is to have SATECH flooring in every Aleydis Center.”
Aleydis Centers are standardized mini-examination/surgery rooms for residents in assisted living
facilities. According to the company, 85 percent of routine healthcare examinations and treatments
for hearing aids, teeth, knees, feet, minor cardiology testing can be done on-site. The room
standardization improves infection control and lowers transmission rates between patients, securely
maintains medical records on site, reduces liability for care providers and decreases the burden on
families who must often shuttle loved ones off-site to visit their doctor or dentist.
The company is named after the patron Saint Aleydis, known for her endurance amid suffering and
to motivate those in pain. “It’s a great connection and meaning,” said Boekeloo.
