Moist Heat: Patented MediBeads®Technology
A "Simple" Solution Backed by Science
Bruder has taken moist heat treatment to a whole new level of effectiveness with patented MediBeads® Technology used in many Bruder products.
Bruder Moist Heat Eye Compress is more than a product — it’s a treatment protocol recommended by eye care professionals to deliver results.
The Bruder Mask with MediBeads technology is recommended for mild, moderate or severe eye issues, as well as preventative maintenance for overall eye health.
Not all compresses are created equal
Sure, there are other compress options on the market but to put it plainly, the Bruder compress is better. But don’t take our word for, let’s look at the science of our innovative and clinically tested Patented MediBeads Technology.
Accept No Substitutes
The innovative and clinically tested MediBeads® technology is a
natural and proven way to bring relief to people suffering from:
Dry Eye Disease, Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD), Blepharitis, Chalazions, and Styes
The Bruder Moist Heat Eye Compress Contains Patented MediBeads®
MediBeads® are silver-infused. Incorporating silver into the bead
structure ensures pure, clean, moist heat with every use, helping to
repel bacteria and keep eyelids clean. The compress also effectively
withstands the rigors of daily use and regular cleaning — the beads
will not break down or lose efficacy like other compresses that contain
silica gel beads, gel, or grains.
Only MediBeads absorb moisture into the center of the bead,
resulting in even, extended moist heat. In other compresses, moisture
sits on the surface, where it quickly evaporates, causing dry, uneven
heat and dangerous hot spots.
Unlike “one-size fits all” eye compress models. that do not truly fit anyone, the Bruder Mask has been designed with two-pods to provide superior comfort and fit.
Pods fit over the eye socket, not onto the forehead and cheeks, to concentrate the warmth where it is needed most – your eyelids!
Makes a Difference
Studies have proven that meibomian secretions melt at 32 – 45°C (89.6 – 113°F). It takes up to 8 minutes for heat to fully penetrate the tarsal plates and reach 40°C at the inner eyelid. The Bruder Compress
effectively achieves this target by providing moist, uniform heat that maintains extended warmth for the entire 8 – 10 minute treatment.
Tear Film Break-up Time
Findings of greater tear film stability and increased tear film lipid layer thickness in patients with MGD following warm compress treatment have been well supported by studies. Furthermore, a 2018 study by
the School of Optometry and Vision Science, UNSW Sydney, Australia shows improvements in tear break up time (NIKBU), Tear Meniscus height (TMH) and Tear film lipid layer thickness (TFLLT), specifically
with the Bruder Moist Heat Eye Compress.
How We Compare
|Bruder Moist Heat Eye Compress with MediBeads®||Others|
|Technology||Only the Bruder compress contains patented Medibeads®||Other compresses contain silica gel beads or grains which don’t perform to the same standard at Medibeads®|
|Heat||Medibeads® provide uniform moist heat, the most penetrating type of heat||Other materials dry out and release uneven heat which can cause hot spots that are dangerous and reduce product performance|
|Hygiene||Medibeads® are silver-infused. Incorporating silver into the bead structure ensures pure, clean, moist heat with every use, helping repel bacteria and keep eyelids clean||Other compresses can harbour bacteria that can increase the risk of infection. they also can be more difficulst to keep clean|
|Design||An ergonomic patent-pending two pod design comfortably fits all facial types with no cumbersome cover to hinder heat penetration and effectivness||One-size-fits-all compresses with cumbersome covers can impact fit and interfere with effective therapy|
|Durability||Medibeads® don’t break down with repeated use and washing. the entire compress can be washed with no impact in efficiency||Silica gel beads and grains break down with handling and washing|
|Testing||Clinical tests show the Bruder compress is effective by virtue of its design, its transfer of penetrating, moist heat, and its ability to increase patient compliance||Other compresses cannot support efficiency with the same degree of rigorous clinical test results|
