About Us

Company Infofounder

Action Products, Inc., founded in 1970 by Dr. McElroy, during his pursuit to develop a pressure relieving material that would help prevent pressure sores in immobilized patients has spurred a worldwide revolution in the pressure management industry. In its third generation of family ownership and management, Action has flourished as a global medical company operating in 58 countries.

Akton® Polymer

The key element in our products is an exclusive material called AKTON® Viscoelastic polymer. No one has AKTON polymer but us, and it is a wondrous material. It looks and feels like a gel, but is more body friendly. It does not leak, flow or bottom out. The best part is that it is repairable! The film is tissue equivalent, and together with the polymer, creates the most shear resistant product on the market today.

Since it is reusable, it helps environmentally, economically, and of course clinically. The perfect package.

Clinical Proof

But don't take our word for it. Read what the medical community has to say about our products. You can do so on our White Papers page. These studies prove that AKTON polymer works to reduce the development of pressure sores. We're proud of that, and our engineers continuously work to improve and expand our product line

We also have a Operating Room Nurse Advice Line, open for you to ask us questions and give you recommendations based on AORN guidelines.
