Founded Cleanis in 2001 to expand on the invention of Doctor Mayer Helewa, a French physician. Throughout his medical career, he realized that bedpans were a source of contamination and unsafe handling. After observing this, he searched for a product that could avoid bedpan soiling rather than constantly cleaning and decontaminating it. The current way of managing soiled bedpans being expensive, time consuming and very risky. He invented and patented the first CareBag® absorbent bag. Since the success of this product many further lines have been added to the range.
