Changing the position on positioning at AAHKS 2017

Changing the position on positioning at AAHKS 2017

[ess_post share_type="text"]

Match Grade Medical was honored to have the opportunity to interact with some of the countries top hip and knee surgeons at this year’s AAHKS annual meeting in Dallas TX.  Our approach with each meeting we atttend is to “change the position on positioning” through our innovative positioning equipment. Many surgeons had a chance to see the benefits of our products, but more importantly, we appreciate learning more about the recent trends and struggles that these top surgeons are facing.  It allows us to target our devices to meet the needs and resolve the struggles faced by these progressive leaders.

In contrast to other meetings we have attended that focused on patient protection, pressure injury, and respect for the sterile field, these surgeons are focused on versatility in knee positioning and rigid support in hip positioning.  Many have already identified new ways to utilize our products to resolve their specific needs.

Although our Solorail knee positioner and our Mini Broadhead pegboard systems were designed for total knees and knee arthroscopy respectively, the level of interest in using them for Oxford, or unicompartmental knee arthroplasty was very high.  Surgeons seemed to appreciate the ability to put a thigh bolster with popliteal support within the sterile field.

We have also found that nearly all of our requests for knee positioner trials since the meeting have included our pivot foot holder which allows a full 90 degrees of lateral and medial rotation.

We pride ourselves on offering versatile, easy to use, and easy to clean positioning devices for orthopedic surgery, and it was great to receive positive support from these industry leading surgeons.

Match Grade Medical Positions Itself for Success with Eagle Performance Plastics Partnership

Match Grade Medical Positions Itself for Success with Eagle Performance Plastics Partnership

[ess_post share_type="text"]

Match Grade Medical was presented with a material sample for their surgical hip positioning system and started to explore which plastic was right for their application. They decided to trust the experts. David Kettner, President and CEO of Match Grade Medical, physically stopped into Eagle Performance Plastics.

“Jared Bailin not only helped us identify the plastic but showed us around Eagle. It was then we realized that Eagle is a one stop shop. They could be our partner in manufacturing.” Kettner was a part of the process from the beginning. “Eagle learned the requirements of our business and we learned about what plastics can and can’t do. They have taught us tolerances, how to dimension, how plastics move and how we deal with stress in the components. We stay with them because they have ideas on manufacturing that we didn’t think of. Tom, Eagle’s Manufacturing Manager, helps with the finite details that make a huge difference in our medical field. The fine tuning and multiple tweaks for one project has created a trust and confidence in getting what we need.”
