Forget everything you know about upholstery materials – a revolutionary new product has appeared – a material that makes no compromises with a high level of comfort, the environment and hygiene. It’s the sector’s revolutionary alternative to PU foam. Give ZenXit a warm welcome.
The possibilities appear endless
ZenXit consists of highly elastic and flexible fibres which are extruded into an elastic three-dimensional network structure. The extrusion can be varied with respect to density and thickness so that the material has a range of applications. ZenXit is extremely breathable, water and bacteria repellent and washable while retaining its shape and supporting the body in an appropriate and comfortable manner.
A new era in the sector
We have tested and analysed ZenXit in cooperation with a number of our biggest customers within various segments. The response has been overwhelmingly positive:
"The sector’s designers, engineers and environmental officers are very interested in looking more closely at this material, and several of them are already in progress with their own user tests. The industry has shown an amazing openness to an alternative upholstery material. With ZenXit, we’re making a line in the sand with respect to the sector’s dilemma in relation to environmental standards when it comes to filler material for upholstering," says Inger Mosholt Nielsen.
A health-promoting material
International investigations show that 15% of patients have bedsores, half of which appear during stays in hospital – among other reasons because the mattress does not support optimal blood circulation. ZenXit is an alternative mattress solution and a revolutionary answer to several of the health sector’s challenges.
The network structure makes the difference
Danish investigations show that up to 43% of all patients admitted to hospital may develop bedsores, partly because of the limited or lack of possibility of moving. The weight is not distributed evenly, so heat and moisture are increased in the places under pressure, and the risk of forming sores and infections is substantial. The problem of sores is thus a major challenge, and often also the reason why the time in hospital is extended.
In contrast to foam mattresses, all areas of the ZenXit mattress are easy to clean, minimising the problem of bacteria, dust mites and fungus in patients’ beds and permitting new and optimised washing processes and routines because:
The hospitals are ready
ZenXit has been laboratory tested with positive and unique results in use in the hospital and health sector. ZenXit mattresses are already in use in Japanese hospitals, and an impending series of tests in a major Danish hospital will adapt ZenXit and make it ready to market to the global health sector. Hospitals the world over will soon be able to use an alternative mattress offering far more functionalities than the traditional foam mattress – a health-promoting solution!
