DISPOSABLE COVERS FOR THERMOMETERS

Since 2006 EQUA manufactures SOFTTEMP disposable covers for thermometers. It is a small but essential contribution to the fight against hospital infection.

In the early 1960s hospitals in Sweden were fighting against the rapid spread of hospital infections. Unclean thermometers were one of the causes for the infection. A Swedish inventor developed a solution – thermometer covers. More than 2 billion covers have been produced and distributed inside the EU since that time.

The production was originally set up in Sweden. Since 2006 the manufacturing has been taken over by us. Well organized production and good material suppliers ensures competitive prices. The materials used for manufacturing SOFTTEMP covers have been developed specifically for this product.

One small carton contains 1000 SOFTTEMP thermometer covers. For deliveries we use a bigger box containing 8 small boxes (altogether 8000 covers).
