October 15, 2014 marks the much anticipated launch of the ElbowLOC Arm Positioner from Hunter Medical, Inc. The debut of this revolutionary device took place at the 2014 Annual Orthopaedic Trauma Conference in Tampa, Florida. The Orthopaedic Trauma Association was founded in 1977, established to fulfill the mission of promoting excellence in care for the injured patient, through provision of scientific forums and support of musculoskeletal research and education of Orthopaedic Surgeons and the public.
The ElbowLOC was presented to fellow Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeons from all over the world, whom expressed great excitement to see firsthand how impactful the ElbowLOC will be to patient outcomes and duration of surgery for the future of elbow surgery. “This easy-to-use, adjustable, and durable surgical arm positioner is unlike anything currently on the market,” says Founder and Chief Medical Office of Hunter Medical, Inc., Dr. Lee Hunter. After more than 500 surgical procedures in academic and private practice settings, this new product has repeatedly demonstrated that it:
• Enables superior supine or lateral decubitus arm positioning
• Shortens procedural times and thus facility expense
• Is cost effective, durable, and intuitive to use
• Simplifies patient positioning while enhancing humeral stability
• Lessens the need for surgical staff by at least one each time it is utilized in supine mode
• Stabilizes the humerus to eliminate elbow “drift” to promote more efficient surgery
• Allows incremental intraoperative elbow extension and hyperflexion; effortlessly.
• By shortening procedural times and lessening anesthetic time for the patient, the ElbowLOC® offers the potential to positively affect patient outcomes
To celebrate the launch of the ElbowLOC Arm Positioning System, Hunter Medical, Inc. is offering a no-charge, 30 day trail of the device.
