Maxwell The Inventor
I am the founder, and CEO of Peel Away Labs and the inventor of Peelaways, the bedding industry’s first multilayered, disposable, waterproof fitted sheet designed for the home, institutional, and healthcare markets.
I started this entrepreneurial journey as a student at the University of Arizona studying Environmental and Water Resource Economics where I combined my heartfelt dedication to our environment and water resources into the design for his innovative product. While living in a college dorm, I noticed many students did not change their bedsheets regularly because stripping the bed, doing the laundry, and remaking it was a major hassle. I also noticed my grandparents, at 90 years old, were struggling to change their own fitted sheet for similar reasons. Realizing this was a challenge for multiple life stages including parents of toddlers, end of life care and people with various health issues, I knew there had to be a better way.
Seeing the opportunity, I invented Peelaways and now hold multiple patents worldwide.Peelaways is disrupting the bedding industry as it saves time, water, chemical detergents, and money. Sheets are sold with either 3 - 5 or 7 layers in all standard and specialty healthcare bed sizes including crib, cot, twin, twin XL, full, queen and king sizes.Peelaways enables consumers and health professionals to simply peel away the top layer in seconds to reveal a new clean sheet below, as no liquids or mess will leak through while improving patient comfort via with a proprietary soft and comfortable fabric. This provides instantly clean bedsheets and reduces infectious disease contamination.
Peel Away Labs has secured partnerships with major retailers and distributors worldwide
I appeared on ABC’s Shark Tank in 2015, for a special “millennial startup focused episode” and while I did not secure a deal, I was still able to raise millions in venture capital financing. For the next generation, the company has created a product that is 100% compostable and biodegradable.
I sincerely hope that you find them helpful in your own life. Named Caregiver Friendly Product of the Year by Caregiver.com!
