Oakworks upgrades signature massage beds with new sustainable features

After years of use, replacing the pad instead of the entire base of the table is truly groundbreaking in sustainable manufacturing
– Jessica Wadley

Spa and wellness equipment manufacturer Oakworks has updated its stationary massage table range with a new sustainable one-piece removable pad top.

The new feature allows operators to easily replace massage table pads without tools when fabric or foam starts to show signs of wear, allowing them to continue making use of the original solid table fitting.

“I’m so proud at the speed in which our R&D team was able to develop and execute the innovation of removable pads,” said Jessica Wadley, VP of US Business Development Integrative Health & Wellness.

“Our foresight to anticipate more frequent disinfection of equipment combined with our desire to make the capital expenditure planning and budget process easier for the spa director makes this innovation especially timely.

“After years of use, replacing the pad instead of the entire base of the table is truly groundbreaking in sustainable manufacturing.”

All Oakworks’ tables are long-lasting high-performance tables made with it’s in-house-designed medical-grade ISO 10993 TerraTouch fabric, designed to withstand harsh disinfectants.
