About Us

 

Who We Are

  • EKONET E-COMMERCE USA INC cooperated with EKOMED and EKOMED is a globally integrated manufacturer of disposable healthcare products and a service provider of medical technologies worldwide. At EkoMed Health, we focus on designing and manufacturing a wide range of disposable products that are utilized in hospitals and in surgical procedures. At EkoMed Health, we are aware of the current need for new and innovative products, so we are always adding to our product portfolio. All the production processes are managed and monitored in accordance with ISO 9001, ISO 13795, ISO13485, CE standards.

 

  • Our primary goal is to provide reliable, qualitative, and continuous production within a high-capacity sterilized environment for the end-user. Our Headquarters is situated in Istanbul-Turkey with the manufacturing plant in İzmir-Turkey. Within Canada and the USA, EkoMed has warehouses and operating offices. It is more than a slogan... Care that never quits... We care about your health!

 

Social Responsibility

  • EkoMed always takes the ethical approach towards environmental events, human rights, and economical sensitivity. EkoMed is working to improve the quality and development of our community and the surrounding society we live in.

 

  • We are educating ourselves to follow and exceed the standards of SA 8000:2014. As a company that serves the health sector, we support social responsibility, especially health-related projects. Care that never quits... We care about your health!

 

Infection Control

We provide apparel solutions that meet or exceed industry safety standards, including:

 

  • AAMI Level 1 isolation gowns
  • AAMI Level 2 isolation gowns
  • AAMI Level 3 isolation gowns
  • AAMI Level 4 isolation & protective gowns

 

We’re here to take care of you the way you take care of others. Keep your clinicians and patients safe every step of the way. Per CDC Guidelines on Standard Precautions, the use of isolation gowns is indicated for some interactions between healthcare workers and patients. Transmission-Based Precautions (Contact, Droplet, and Airborne Precautions) are always used in addition to Standard Precautions. Isolation gowns are indicated for use whenever Contact Precautions are in effect and may be appropriate when Droplet and/or Airborne Precautions are in effect, depending on the nature of the interaction between the healthcare worker and patient as well as the extent of anticipated blood, body fluid, or pathogen exposure. For more information, visit cdc.gov.

Aami Levels

 

Defining the best level of protection for the standard ANSI/AAMI PB70:2012 involves an understanding of the critical zones of a gown and what each level of barrier performance entails so that the best gown is chosen for use by healthcare workers. The critical zones of gowns comprise the front of the gown and the sleeves, which are both primary areas with the greatest risk of exposure to fluids and blood-borne pathogens. As the level increases, so does the need for greater barrier protection for the entire critical zone.

 

• Level 1: Minimal level of fluid barrier protection.

• Level 2: Low level of fluid barrier protection.

• Level 3: Moderate level of fluid barrier protection.

• Level 4: The highest level of fluid and viral barrier protection

Material Descriptions

 

  • Spunbond Polypropylene

Standard, cost-effective, and comfortable for basic infection control, this non-woven fabric bonds fibers together to form a single layer that is appropriate only for very minimal fluid exposure.

 

  • SMS Material
Strong and breathable, Spunbond/Meltblown/Spunbond (SMS) is a multi-layer fabric composed of inner layers of melt-blown polypropylene between outer layers of spun-bond polypropylene that is ideal for extended wear. Light/medium weight SMS is appropriate for low amounts of fluid and heavyweight SMS may be appropriate for moderate contact with fluids.

 

  • Coated Polypropylene (Poly-coated)

Soft, spun-bond polypropylene is coated with a layer of polyethylene (plastic) film

 

  • Polyethylene (Plastic) Film

A single layer of polyethylene (plastic) film provides protection at an affordable cost.

 

Testing

 

The Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) standards is designed to help medical-device companies meet global standards for the safe use of medical devices. AAMI introduced the voluntary standard ANSI/AAMI PB70:2012, Liquid Barrier Performance and Classification of Protective Apparel and Drapes Intended for Use in Health Care Facilities, to determine key identification measures for the appropriate selection of protective apparel and drapes, such as medical gowns, for use in healthcare facilities (Pfiedler Enterprises, 2016). The AAMI gown classification stems from four levels of barrier performance, measured accordingly with the following standardized tests;

 

AATCC 42-2017: Measures resistance of fabrics to the penetration of water by impact (AATCC, 2018)

AATCC 127-2017: Measures resistance of fabric to the penetration of water underhydrostatic pressure (AATCC, 2017)

ASTM F1670-17: Evaluate the resistance of materials used in protective clothing to penetration by synthetic blood under conditions of continuous liquid contact (ASTM, 2017)

ASTM F1671-13: Measure penetration by blood-borne pathogens using a surrogatemicrobe under conditions of continuous liquid contact  (ASTM, 2013)
