AKTON® Polymer vs the Competition

AKTON® is a dry polymer that distributes weight so effectively it eliminates pressure points.  Patients on ProPoly’s partner, Action’s Akton® medical pads do not develop bed sores or other ulcers even after prolonged bed stays.   In fact, patients with bed sores transferred to an Akton® medical pad saw the sores heal and disappear.

ProPoly president Pat Surette saw the potential of the polymer for commercial and industrial use outside the medical field.
