Equashield Pro

The Equashield Pro is built around Equashield CSTD and relies on an innovative design to redefine the automation workflow and optimize throughout. Unlike a traditional robot’s reliance on arms that mimic human motion to use a needle and syringe, the Equashield Pro uses a multi-station compounding approach to minimize both the motion and time it takes to prepare a dose, much like a factory manufacturing line. The Equashield Pro was designed to make the adoption of robotics in the IV room affordable and straightforward regardless of hospital size.

Dabir Surfaces

Pressure Ulcers (PUs), previously referred to as "bed sores," are highly preventable clinical adverse events that cause unnecessary suffering and reduce the quality-of-life of patients. The secondary infections that often accompany PUs also can be life threatening. Dabir Surfaces (Methode Electronics) was created with the sole purpose of developing technology and solutions to help prevent these devastating “Never Events.” From a device perspective, pressure was confirmed to be a factor, but more importantly, it was the duration of the pressure acting on the skin that needed to be addressed. Our compelling human factors success story has utilized input from several industries—resulting in ZERO reported PUs to date when Dabir’s innovative solution is adopted.

Cell-Cast is designed to utilize low-temperature thermoplastic and improves the overall healing experience for broken bones. Unlike traditional casts, it is lighter, easy-to-make, more breathable and waterproof, to treat patients comfortably. Current casts can smell, cause itching and rash and get wet. Cell-Cast's hollow and waterproof design leaves most of the skin exposed so patients can clean the injured area. Cell-Cast also is easily molded when heated and fits the patient better when being applied, then hardens to support broken bones. And instead of having to cut it was a noisy saw that can scare young patients, health workers simply can use a pair of pliers to remove Cell-Cast.

Medtronic StraightShot® M5 Microdebrider

The StraightShot® M5 Microdebrider is a state-of-the-art surgical hand piece used in rhinoplasty surgery. This procedure typically involves three instruments simultaneously inserted into a single nasal and sinus cavity that results in instrument and hand interferences throughout surgery. The M5 Microdebrider was designed to reduce the physical mass of the hand piece to an absolute minimum and to prompt the surgeon to use grip architectures that minimize the amount of physical space without compromising tool control.
