Polybrominated Diphenyl Eithers

Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers

None of the Foams used by Therapeutic Pillows or Theramed contain Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers. Our products do not contain PBDE's

PBDE's are organobromine compounds often used by various foam producers as a fire retardent in their foams. 

There have been environmental and health concerns raised about PBDE's as they do tend to concentrate in blood and tissue. Hormone disprupting effects have been seen to occur in people and animals when exposed to PBDE's. 

PBDE's have been banned for use since 2007 in any form of Manufacture in Australia. 

Most states in the US and also the European Union have banned the use of PBDE's. 

As stated PBDE's are not used in the manufacture of any foams in the Therapeutic Pillow range of products.
