Nurses and medical staff dedicate their careers to helping those who are sick or in pain, all while putting themselves at risk.
Beyond the increased risk of contracting an illness, due to the long hours spent on their feet checking on and moving patients, professionals in healthcare experience some of the highest rates of on-the-job injuries and illnesses.
In fact, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2017 the Healthcare and Social Assistance private industry sector led in number of reported non-fatal injuries on the job with a total of 548,100; followed by the manufacturing industry with 394,600.
At SmartCells, we believe that Life Shouldn’t Hurt, and we specifically design products to keep standing workers such as nurses and other medical staff comfortable and safe on-the-job.
Here’s how SmartCells Help:
The optimized design of our patented SmartCells offer a stable surface over cylindrical cells which soften under impact and resist bottoming out. This creates the perfect balance of support and cushion, for maximum fatigue relief while minimizing the risk of injury. This allows nurses and medical staff to stay safe and comfortable while providing excellent patient care.
In addition to our unique cushioning technology, thanks to their rubber-based formulation, SmartCells mats will not absorb liquid and are easy to clean which allows for better infection control processes.
SmartCells Cushioning is available in a variety of Anti-fatigue Solutions ranging in size from individual employee mats to extended workstation runners, and custom flooring applications. We even offer different colors, rubber formulations, and surface options to best meet your organization’s unique needs. All we need are your dimensions and we can build it for you.
We know that oftentimes nurses and other healthcare staff are simply too mobile to benefit from SmartCells Anti-fatigue mats or flooring. Which is why we’re proud to announce our all-new SmartCells Anti-fatigue Industrial Insole.
This insole is the perfect solution for active workers who are always on-the-go and in need of fatigue relief. Featuring SmartCells® Cushioning in the heel and forefoot, these insoles significantly reduce impact forces and also return the energy back to your body. The additional layers provide a cushioned arch support and add a soft yet sturdy top cover to keep every employee comfortable throughout the day.
