Exam Table Paper Rolls - Headrest Paper Sheets & Chiropractic Face Paper
Medical exam table paper covers massage tables, dentist tool tables, doctor room tables, and in this specific case, chiropractic chairs, although they can cover various other types of medical equipment or furniture as well.
Medical exam paper covers any surface that has the potential to come into direct contact with a patient. Medical exam table paper is used to protect the patient from any potentially harmful microorganisms or viruses that can be transferred from patient to patient through direct contact with a commonly used surface in a chiropractor’s office.
Therefore, medical exam papers provide excellent coverage from cross-contamination of these bacteria and viruses. This paper is generally placed on a thick roll so that it can be easily stored and dispensed when the patient arrives or leaves.
Thus, when the medical exam table paper is needed, the paper can be rolled off to the necessary length required to cover the chairs in doctors’ offices, dentists, and especially in chiropractic offices, either at the beginning of the check-up or after the medical examination is completed. Once the chiropractic treatment is finished, the disposable medical exam table paper can then be thrown away.
What is Medical Exam Paper Made Of?
Chiropractic exam table paper is constructed to be strong and absorbent. This type of paper is manufactured with the use of pulp fibers or old, recycled pulp. Due to its sturdy construction, medical exam paper is usually hard to tear. They may only be torn at an angle so that it can then be separated from the roll, as chiropractors will typically leave the paper attached until the examination is finished and the patient has left.
Some paper rolls may even be available with perforations so that they can be easily torn away after they have been sufficiently used. Some exam paper may even be customized with entertaining print so that the chiropractic office has a less intimidating atmosphere for children and babies. All exam table paper rolls come in several different sizes and styles for whatever the office most needs.
What Are the Different Types of Medical Exam Paper Available for Purchase?
There are two different types of medical exam table papers available: smooth and crepe table paper. Your personal preference between the two should be the biggest deciding factor for which you should buy medical exam paper, because both smooth paper and crepe table paper do an excellent job of protecting patients from cross-contamination.
Smooth table paper is glazed with a fine finish in order to help prevent moisture from penetrating the paper. It is more resistant to body moisture and gives off a more professional appearance for patients coming into the office.
Crepe paper, by contrast, has a paper-towel like texture, and they are often manufactured to be opaque in color. Crepe paper is typically the softer of the two paper towels because the unique texture is utilized to minimize the likelihood of patients slipping, and this type of paper is usually more comfortable for the patient to sit down on or lay on.
This paper also tends to be less noisy when the patients move down or across the table. Therefore, the advantages of crepe table paper can be summarized with these attributes: quiet, prevents any slipping, soft construction, and more comfortable design.
The standard weight classification for both of these medical exam table papers are the standard or deluxe “ply” figure. Examples of these ply figures can include two-ply, four-ply, and so on and so forth. The ply figure represents the thickness of the exam table paper rolls. The weight of the medical exam paper is generally represented in figures such as 10 pounds, 14 pound, etc.
The greater the weight of the medical exam table paper, the greater overall thickness and strength of that paper.
How Do I Select the Best Type of Medical Exam Paper?
The lowest prices for medical exam paper are paper of a lower weight; neither crepe nor smooth paper has much of an effect on the pricing. Instead, the heavier the weight of the paper is, the higher the price will probably be because heavier paper generally offers a higher amount of protection from viruses and bacteria, greater overall strength, and higher levels of absorbency.
You can select the best type of medical exam paper by focusing on what you value most. Do you value your exam paper giving your office a more professional feel, or would you rather give patients a more comfortable experience in your office while they are being examined? The only thing separating the two is the quality, since you can purchase both at roughly the same price point.
