Convenient Use in a Complex Environment

The hospital can be a complex, busy environment. The GELShield™ offers clinicians simplicity and convenience:

  • Easy on, easy off
    Velcro® bands are easy to use during normal care of the infant
  • Easy to clean
    Use hospital-approved nonalcohol wipes
  • Each infant gets his or her own GELShield™
    Disposable—for single patient use only

The GELShield™ is available in 3 sizes, clearly color coded

“It’s easy to put on. It’s low profile. It doesn’t interfere with what we’re doing in the NICU.”
