Single-patient use air transfer system
Designed to be multifunctional, the HoverMatt Single-Patient Use (SPU) Air Transfer System makes patient transfers, boosting, positioning and proning easier, while protecting caregiver safety. Using air-assisted technology, once the mattress is inflated, a cushion of air beneath the HoverMatt SPU reduces the force required to move a patient by 80 percent to 90 percent, enabling caregivers to safely transfer patients without lifting or straining. By reducing injuries related to patient handling, the HoverMatt SPU also helps to improve staff retention. The system also reduces the risk of cross contamination and eliminates the need for outside laundering services.

Arm sleeves for sterile processing
Healthmark Industries added the new Arm Sleeve to its personal protection equipment accessory product line. The sleeve meets AORN guidelines which state that arms of sterile processing professionals must be covered when they are preparing and packaging sterile items in the clean assembly area. Designed as an alternative to the traditional long-sleeved scrub top or jacket, the machine washable arm sleeves are a one-size that fits a bicep of 10-14 inches. The sleeves are made from a fast-drying, moisture-wicking polyester material, featuring an elastic gripper to prevent the sleeve from sliding down the user’s arm. Available in blue, green and pink solid colors.
FlexMetric surgical shaft
Flexible shaft technology from Lenkbar LLC is now available in a single-use acetabular drill for total hip replacement surgery. The new surgical shaft gives surgeons the ability to shape their tools to the situations before them. Variable angle Fighting Dovetail links power the patented FlexMetric shaft. Because the dovetail links are segmental and interlocked, the FlexMetric drill navigates the angles the surgeon desires while retaining the shaft strength the surgeon needs in either clockwise or counter-clockwise rotation. The unique design results in optimal, tactile control and predictability.
