In the November/December 2017 issue of Surgical Products, the winners of this year’s Excellence In Surgical Products (ESP) Awards are revealed.
Day by day, we’ll also share the results here, including some additional details about the honored products.
The Hadron FPLS is the first and only patent pending foam pad lift system for Trendelenburg. All current gel and foam pad systems tether to the table in a fixed location, forcing care providers to either preposition their patients in a lithotomy ready position, away from optimal anesthesia visualization needed for safe laryngoscopy, or position the patient closer to anesthesia, where they then routinely have to physically and bodily lift their patients 4-13 inches on average into a lithotomy ready position. The Hadron system allows providers to lift both pad and patient into lithotomy, improving ergonomic, and safe lifting practices.

How does this product benefit the surgical team and aid in better outcomes?
The Hadron FPLS provides a safer alternative to lifting patients during the facilitation of lithotomy positioning/Trendelenburg procedures. It’s the only modular handled system available on the market, with a lift capacity of 500 lbs. The Hadron benefits anesthesia, surgical staff, and ultimately the surgeon (stable positioning). The value of the system transcends the result of stable Trendelenburg positioning needed to facilitate surgery. When iMT’s ION ESPS system is used, skin to pad contact is optimized for maximum traction. Each kit includes a chest strap, chest pad, and optional draw sheet to give providers all the accessories needed for high reliability.
