peel-and-stick, single-use VitalPatch

This Patch Monitors Discharged Patients
The peel-and-stick, single-use VitalPatch is an adhesive biosensor that patients wear on their chest like a bandage for up to 3 days at a time. It sends 24/7 feedback on patients' vital signs and overall health to doctors or nurses. The hope is that VitalPatch will help reduce hospital readmissions by detecting signs of infection or other complications until you can see patients for a follow-up appointment. The lightweight, wireless patch continuously monitors and records single-lead ECG, heart rate, heart rate variability, respiratory rate, skin temperature, posture, step count and fall detection with clinical accuracy, says the company.

Cirona 6300 DVT compression therapy pump

DVT Therapy That's Light and Portable
The Cirona 6300 DVT compression therapy pump weighs less than a pound and comes with rechargeable batteries that can last up to 8 hours, giving patients the freedom to roam without having to worry about increased venous pressure. By intermittently applying pressure to limbs, it mimics natural muscle contractions and improves circulation. It may also reduce wound-healing time and help treat stasis dermatitis, venous stasis ulcers and chronic venous insufficiency, says the company. Its adjustable sleeves are made from a soft fabric, and its one-button operation makes it easy to turn on and off.

single-use iris expansion

Single-Use Iris Expansion System for Tough Cataract Cases
Diamatrix is now offering a sterile single-use version of its multi-use iris expansion system, the XpandNT. It's identical in form, function and delivery method, says the company, simplifying cataract cases that are complicated by intraoperative floppy iris syndrome or dilation limiting factors. A flexible, biocompatible nitinol ring provides 6.7mm of near circular, mechanical dilation. The ring's design provides for easy rotation and a clear pathway for instruments. The single-use version is packaged in boxes of 5, and all multi-use and single-use instruments are interchangeable.
