Cool Aids cooling products

A Cool Solution to Warm Work Environments
Just in time for summer, Healthmark has launched its line of Cool Aids cooling products, designed to manage your body temperature from the head, neck, chest and core. To activate the cooling products — available as beanies, skull caps, neck wraps and vests — submerge them in cool water for a minute or 2, letting the material absorb the water. Then gently squeeze out the remaining water, and put them on the garment. The products provide cool comfort for hours and may be used multiple times. The machine-washable vest is designed with cooling inserts that are refrigerated before each use.

Upper GI Scope

An Upper GI Scope That Does It All
Physicians who rely on HD endoscopes to diagnose Barrett's esophagus and other upper GI disorders often have to sacrifice high-quality visualization for the larger working channels of standard-definition scopes when treatment is necessary. With Olympus's HD video gastroscope, part of its Evis Exera III platform, they no longer have to make that switch. A narrower insertion tube, a wider working channel and narrow-band imaging make the GIF-1TH190 a single solution for both screening and surgery.


Portable Exam Boot Upgrades Tables in Seconds
Attach the physician-developed GStirrup to any exam table in just a few seconds — no tools are needed — and you have a positioning tool that's designed to provide safety, stability and comfort to patients in the lithotomy position. It's especially well suited when patients' legs need to be supported and stabilized for longer procedures. You can adjust the stirrup legs to accommodate a wide variety of leg lengths. You can also adjust the calf rest, made from flexible polypropylene, for very wide calves.
