Cost Savings: Cloth vs Disposable

 

Disposables Cost Three And A Half Times More Than FREESTYLE.

FREESTYLE garments have been independently tested to maintain their shape and absorbency even after 350 washings.

 

When you consider that a person with even a mild incontinence problem may use up to eight disposables a day, it's easy to see why FREESTYLE garments make better financial sense.

*Handling cost represents an average cost of laundering that may vary by facility.

 

For disposables, handling cost represents the cost of disposing the garment.

 

A person requiring eight disposable garments a day would need only 24 FREESTYLE garments over the next three years, assuming a three day laundry turnaround time.

 

The same person would require 8,760 disposable garments, which would cost $8,148.

 

The same person using FREESTYLE garments, including laundering, would spend $2,326. So using FREESTYLE means saving $5,822.

 

FREESTYLE represents a savings of over 70% when compared to disposables.

Again FREESTYLE represents a considerable savings when compared to disposables.

 

A person requiring four disposable bed pads a day would need only 12 FREESTYLE bed pads over the next three years, assuming a three day laundry turnaroung time.

 

The same person would require 4,380 disposable bed pads, at the cost of $3,234.

 

The total cost of FREESTYLE bed pads, including laundering, over the same period would be $1,175.

 

And FREESTYLE lightweight bed pads would only cost $860.

 

FREESTYLE bed pads represents a savings of $2,059. Or 64% when compared to disposables.

 

FREESTYLE lightweight bed pads offer a savings of $2,374. Or over 70% when compared to disposables.

 

FREESTYLE's bed pad with turn handles are a full 36 inches by 36 inches, significantly larger than many disposable bed pads so nothing protects better than FREESTYLE.

 

And the turn handles assist care givers in moving patients.

 

FREESTYLE's lightweight bed pads provide an economical alternative to full size bed pad and will protect bed linens and mattresses from light moisture.
