The original study completed by Ward of the 21st Century (W21C) between October 2012 and January 2013 showed that CleanPatch did not harbor any more organisms than the mattress and that it could be cleaned effectively. In October 2013, one full year after CleanPatch were applied to mattresses, W21C went back to evaluate the durability and appearance of the product over time. As of October 2013, 72 CleanPatch were evaluated and all of them remained fully adhered to the mattress surface, showing no visible signs of physical damage or tear!

It appears that CleanPatch continues to perform well in a hospital setting, one full year after application. Please click here for the new Whitepaper for further information.
