As a therapy service provider, Purifas recognises that not only should a therapist’s clients benefit from a therapy session but so too should the therapist: the client for the obvious reasons of receiving treatment but also the therapist from knowing they have helped someone.
In December 2021, we conducted market research to find out what was important to clients during a therapy session and to hear their thoughts on our BodyShield.
Sixty-four participants (31 males and 33 females), split over a broad age range, attended their usual 30-minute therapy session but with one small difference — they used our BodyShield. At the end of their session, participants were asked to complete a short survey.
We can report the following results:
WORLD'S FIRST RESEARCH ― A significant amount of government funding is consistently allocated to research into infection risks and prevention in hospital environments, however, the same can't be said for therapy environments. This lack of research prompted us to commission our own preliminary research into the infection risks associated with therapy beds, with a focus on the transmission of both bacteria and saliva. The results are in and they will shock you!
