Medgadget has learned that IMT International Trade AG, a Swiss company, is planning to introduce its TraumaTransfer™ device at the Trauma & Critical Care show in Las Vegas in March 2007.
Here’s how the company presents its trauma board:
What is TraumaTransfer™?
TraumaTransfer™ is designed for fast and safe immobilisation and transferring of trauma-patients intrahospital.
What are the advantages of TraumaTransfer™?
TraumaTransfer™ allows you to eliminate several cumbersome and potentially dangerous lifts of the traumapatient. Therefore it is safer and more comfortable for the patient and easier for the staff.
TraumaTransfer™ is optimized for x-ray and CT and leaves no artefacts in the pictures like vacuum-mattresses do.
Due to the pressure-relieving material, the risk for pressure-injuries is minimized.
For whom should it be used?
All trauma patients, even a slightly injured patient in need of x-ray or CT should be placed on the TraumaTransfer™. Patients with cerebral aneurysm or AVM will also benefit from being placed on the TraumaTransfer™.
