There are often various associations with the medical industry and its various needs. We’ve all seen medical dramas complaining about a lack of medical supplies such as beds, bandages, or bedpans. However, there is another essential product that the hospital needs to be able to accomplish its goals: foam. Many lifesaving tools need medical foam that you may have never even considered. Keep reading to learn how Merryweather Foam provides hospitals and other healthcare facilities within the medical industry with the highest-quality foam-based products.

Applications of Our Medical Foam Supplies
Medical Positioning Devices
Certain medical conditions will require you to be in a particular position for an extended time. An example of this would be when you are in traction. However, there are other times when the patient mustn’t be moved. The best way to ensure the patient remains immobile is to provide foam pads or medical positioning wedges to nestle them properly and keep them from moving around during procedures and other medical interventions. Merryweather Foam proudly makes durable and highly functional foam products that fit the needs of medical offices, hospitals, nursing homes, and beyond.
Foam has always been a staple of soundproofing, even in the medical industry. It naturally dampens the soundwaves from traveling further, not allowing them to reverberate off the walls and create an echo. Medical settings like inpatient units and operating rooms benefit from sound-dampening. Sound-dampening foam can help protect patient privacy and ensure a pleasant environment for medical professionals and guests.
Using a prosthetic can naturally be very abrasive on one’s skin. A prosthetic’s hard plastic or metal components can cause irritation and sometimes even painful sores and bruises. Prosthetic foams created by Merryweather Foam are essential medical supplies due to the comfort they provide to the user, allowing them to use their prosthetic and a better quality of life.
An EKG monitors a patient’s heart rate and tells the doctors and nurses vital information about their condition. If a patient begins to do poorly or “crash,” the EKG will monitor and report this so emergency action can be taken. Merryweather Foam provides foam for EKG Pads that are necessary for EKG monitors to function – offering the quality and consistency needed to provide an accurate reading.
Some say there is no pain like foot pain. If you have pain in your feet, it makes every step excruciating. Placing inserts into one’s shoes is a widespread relief for such a condition. These foam inserts can make all the difference for someone suffering from a painful foot condition. Foam insert products manufactured by Merryweather Foam provide a durable cushion that relieves patients with orthotic conditions.
Blood Filtration & Oxygenation
Designed to offer specific filtration properties, foam filters are used in a variety of blood filtration and oxygenation machines. We create the essential foam medical supplies that allow medical professionals to perform a wide range of surgeries and procedures accurately.
Foam air filters are widely used in medical settings for their ability to filter out airborne particles. Air purification systems help maintain air quality and lessen the spread of contagions, which is essential for medical settings. Foam filters are also needed for various medical applications, including respiratory care. Merryweather Foam has experience producing various foam products for air filtration.
Packaging Medical Supplies
Many medical supplies are delicate by nature and must be protected to avoid damage when transported. Foam is an excellent insulation material that provides ample padding to pack these necessary medical items safely. From delicate machinery to biological materials, we provide foam products for packaging material that helps protect medical supplies and ensure safe transports.
