Are these foot holders STILL in your surgery suite?

Are these foot holders STILL in your surgery suite?

Recently, one of the manufacturers of this positioner for total knee replacement realized that their product housed contamination.

Given that there is no way to clean the foot holder, short of cutting it open; They did the responsible thing, and putting the patient first, issued a recall on all of these positioners.

Unfortunately, not all of the manufacturers who have produced products using this approach have recalled their products.

There remain hundreds, if not thousands of these positioners in use that are carrying bioburden from previous patients into surgery. If any of these positioners are still in use in your facility, please inform your sterile processing manager or contact the manufacturer and request that the device be recalled immediately.

Match Grade Medical has designed our knee positioner systems from the beginning to be completely sealed, with access to all surfaces for cleaning. The design of our foot holder along with the continuous weld construction is patented. Match Grade Medical… First and always.

Celebrating Patent Approval – Broadhead Lateral Positioning System

Celebrating Patent Approval – Broadhead Lateral Positioning System

Match Grade Medical is proud to announce that the US Patent and Trademark Office has issued and published the patent for their Broadhead Pegboard system. 

For hospitals using conventional pegboard systems hip surgery and lateral positioning, this is a game changing pegboard technology that not only offers easier setup and better support, but because of the patented shape and broad contact surface is able to reduce the pressure against the patient’s skin by as much as 75 percent.

The Broadhead system pegs are machined from a solid piece of material which makes them machine washable and fully radiolucent. 

 Designed to be easy to clean, there is nowhere for debris to hide and transfer contamination between procedures. The fact that they are fully radiolucent allows for optimum placement and support.

The reduction of pressure injury is a significant benefit to the patient and the provider.  Not only does the patented shape of the pegs and the broad contact surface reduce pressure, but the shape of the pegboard itself can help to reduce impingement points.

Disposable lateral positioning pads are also available.
