RF Surgical Systems, a company out of Carlsbad, California, has unveiled its latest surgical sponge management product, the RF Assure Detection System X. It consists of the ConformPlus II antenna array body scanner for detecting sponges within the torso, the ArQ•Sphere handheld bi-nodal scanner for spotting sponges following procedures on the extremities, spine, and other regions outside the torso, and the Blair-Port Wand X device to locate sponges that are outside the body but still in the OR.
From the announcement:
Enhancements to the RF Assure Detection System X include a new compliance-driven interface designed to provide “real-time” feedback to guide the OR staff through an effective sponge management protocol. The redesigned interface improves accessibility and data visibility during procedures and automatically stores case and scan records for convenient review and compliance.
In addition, RFS introduces a new scanning component for the RF Assure Detection System X, the The ArQ•Sphere. This new handheld, stationary scanning device leverages dual-3D scan fields to address the positioning challenges specific to extremity, head, neck, spine and other specialty procedures. The ArQ•Sphere offers motion-free scanning with overlapping scan fields, creating an optimal detection zone for orthopedic and specialty procedures.
