Pressure care manufacturer Direct Healthcare Group (DHG) has acquired the Transflo Cushion brand from Karomed in a deal which will see it assume the production and sales of the product from 1st March.
The Transflo Cushion has been in the pressure care market for more than 30 years and is well-known in UK community care settings for its high-risk gel cushions.
The acquisition is part of DHG’s strategy for sustained growth and follows on from the acquisitions of Nightingale Professional Bariatric Care in 2016 and Kirton Healthcare in 2017.
Commenting on the purchase of the Transflo Cushion brand, Graham Ewart, CEO of DHG, said the acquisition of the Transflo Cushion range will enable the group to offer “an enhanced provision of service and product quality” through its ISO 13485-accredited business management system.
“By increasing our product offering we ensure that we are providing innovative, market leading pressure care management that makes a real difference to our healthcare professionals and the patients they provide care for.
“Direct Healthcare Group’s global network will allow the Transflo Cushion range to be offered across Europe and Asia-Pacific for the first time, providing a strongly regarded, high-risk preventative product worldwide.
“This represents our continued intent to deliver pressure care solutions that provide value and benefit to our healthcare providers.”
DHG said it will be in communication with Transflo Cushion customers to detail the necessary steps following the product acquisition.
The Transflo Cushion is a premium cushion manufactured using a combination of high density foam and a unique silicone gel ‘floatation’ system, providing substantial pressure redistribution while offering stability and comfort.
