BioMat for Corporate Wellness

Nothing impacts your business more than the health of your employees. When your staff members are healthy and feeling good, they bring greater energy, focus and productivity to their work. When they are stiff sore or in pain quality and quantity of work suffer and they cost you even more money in terms of insurance premiums and time off work for sick days and doctors appointments.

Yet today’s workers are subject to far greater threats to their health than ever before. They are more sedentary, heavier and more stressed than previous generations; these realities of the modern workplace can lead to a serious drain on your organization’s resources, morale, competitiveness and overall profitability.

The BioMat offers an effective and affordable way to improve how people feel in the workplace. It’s ideal for a range of uses, including responding to stress and fatigue (by providing muscle relaxation and heat that feels really good because you can control the temperature to suit yourself) and support of the immune system. The Biomat is ISO 9000 certified and FDA approved.

The FDA 510 K Indications for Use include:

  • Relaxation of muscles
  • Increase of local circulation where applied

Temporary relief of:

  • Minor muscle pain
  • Minor joint pain and stiffness
  • Joint paint associated with arthritis
  • Muscle spasms
  • Minor sprains
  • Minor strains
  • Minor muscular back pain

The BioMat will increase the productivity of your staff by reducing stress, and distracting minor muscular back and joint pain and stiffness. The BioMat provides a relaxing treatment that can be safely and beneficially enjoyed by your staff. Its calibrated settings can be easily programmed to deliver a personalized regimen for each member of your staff.

The BioMat eases minor joint and stiffness using technology that combines soothing far infrared ray and negative ion therapy.

With a one-time investment in a BioMat unit, you ensure that your employees have access to one of the most advanced, FDA Approved Class II Medical Devices available. Based on award-winning research, and NASA technology the BioMat helps your organization achieve a new standard of health and wellness:

Reduce absenteeism and low productivity. The BioMat can provide a good short 15 to 30 minute muscle relaxation break and can be combined with cds and videos for relaxation, breathing techniques, and stress relief. Even better, when you invest in Mini BioMats for your staff members’ chairs you take great care of your employees while they work. Of course, there is nothing like lying right down on a Professional (full body) size BioMat for 15 to 30 minutes to fully relax and temporarily soothe any of the kinds of pain or spasms listed in the FDA 510K list. Combine a shared Professional BioMat with dedicated personal Mini BioMats for best results.

Do your sales people close as many sales when they feel stress and fatigue and/or minor muscular back pain and stiff muscles after sitting in their chairs for a few hours or more? Are your executives productive and persuasive in similar states? The BioMat can help and it is way more cost effective than hiring a massage therapist or sending everyone out for espressos. Instead, they could be in the office feeling good and adding value to the company .

 

Reduce stress-related illness. Stress is an epidemic in the modern workplace. The BioMat is specifically designed to relax muscles in as little as 15 minutes per session, and can also be used in conjunction with meditative practice if desired.

Boost morale with a perk staff will love. The best part of the BioMat treatment system is that it feels great! This is a health-boosting device that your employees will genuinely enjoy using. Every session on the BioMat will leave them feeling refreshed, relaxed, and energized. Even though the BioMat is a registered medical device, your staff will appreciate it most because it gives them a spa-like mini-retreat—in a convenient, on-site location! In a tough economic climate, the BioMat offers a very affordable way to show your staff you care about their health and happiness. The arrival of the BioMat will answer the question of “does management care about us” that is already going on in today’s worker’s mind. Most businesses cannot afford to give bonuses as often as was once expected and the constant presence of the BioMat can end the productivity crushing water cooler griping that often returns as soon as employees have had time to forget about the latest financial bonus or raise.

The BioMat: a perfect fit for your corporate health strategy

Because it’s affordable, easy to use and requires no set-up or maintenance, the BioMat is the perfect addition to corporate wellness initiatives of all types:

Offer convenient at-desk treatments. With the BioMat Mini, your employees can enjoy therapeutic treatment right at their desks. At just 17” x 33” inches and 8.2 pounds, it’s small and lightweight enough to be positioned in an office chair and used while working or even during a quick total break. The BioMat reduces stress and fatigue, making it perfect for at-work use.

Enhance your existing wellness room. If you have a designated wellness room, consider opting for the BioMat Professional. It comes with a 27.56” x 74” pad, allowing for full-length body contact and optimal results. The pad fits on a massage bed, day-bed or floor pad. BioMat treatments can be added to existing wellness options, such as massage, yoga practice, or meditation, or enjoyed on their own.

Create an affordable wellness retreat. Do you already have extra space in your office building that could be put to better use? If you are looking for a low-cost yet effective way to create a wellness program for your staff, the BioMat Professional is a sound investment. You can create a popular and beneficial health in-office wellness room with some unused office space and a massage table or simple foam daybed. You could even install dimmer switches and a portable sound system so that staff can enjoy soothing sounds and ambient light while undergoing therapeutic treatment. We have a 15 minute relaxation CD specially created to be used with the BioMat.

Provide “Loaner” BioMats to Staff. By offering the loan of a BioMat Professional model to staff on extended sick or stress leave, you can show them that you are committed to their recovery while shortening the time it takes for them to return to work. BioMat can provide support to the immune system, and reduce stress.

Most organizations have no idea just how much employee stress costs them each year. A study by the Princeton, NJ, firm of Foster Higgins & Co. indicated that corporate health benefits cost the average company 45 percent of its after-tax profits. With research implicating stress in 60 percent to 90 percent of medical problems, companies cannot afford to ignore the huge health-care expense employee stress creates. Integrating the BioMat into your On-Site Health Services allows your employees to immediately relax their muscles to combat stress levels, and refresh themselves for greater focus and productivity. Employees can even enjoy temporary pain relief for any of the various types of pain for which the US FDA has indicated the BioMat can be used.

With the cost of last-minute employee no-shows climbing, U.S. employers are still struggling to find effective programs that keep healthy workers on the job, according to the 15th annual CCH Unscheduled Absence Survey by CCH INCORPORATED (CCH). The survey found that the average per-employee cost has risen to $660 per employee – costing some large employers over $1 million per year. In an effort to minimize these costs, employers are implementing work-life programs. The CCH Unscheduled Absence Survey found that U.S. companies now offer an average of 9 work-life programs, up from 8 in 2004 and 7 in 2003. In a study on the efficacy of work-life programs it was discovered that Wellness Programs and On-site Health Services were not only ranked as very effective, but 64% and 40% of employers (respectively) have implemented these initiatives with success. The BioMat is a perfect solution to add to your Wellness Program and On-site Health Services.

Having stressed-out and depleted employees serve the public virtually guarantees alienated customers. This can have very serious effects on the bottom line. According to a study of over 100 companies by Frederick Reichheld and W. Earl Sasser, published in the Harvard Business Review, a 5 percent reduction in customer defection translates into anywhere from a 30 percent to an 85 percent increase in corporate profitability. Thus, even a relatively small percentage of customers who aren’t completely satisfied with a company’s service can result in a huge loss in profitability. The connection between happy employees and satisfied customers is obvious, yet so often ignored. Proactively protect your customer satisfaction and take care of your employees with a BioMat today.

Allow employees to use the medical quality BioMat to treat the types of minor pain listed above in the FDA 510K indications for use, and relax tense muscles before they need stress leave or sick leave.
