Why do you think readers were interested in hearing more about this product?
As the number of minimally invasive procedures performed increases each year, there is continued emphasis on improving visualization in the surgical suite. Of course, this starts with using the best imaging systems, cameras and monitors, but making sure that the monitors are placed in the best position is critically important. The Stryker Dual Flat Panel System ensures that imaging monitors can be effortlessly maneuvered around the OR. This allows the surgical staff to focus on the best monitor position for each unique procedural application.
How does this product benefit the surgical team and aid in better outcomes for patients?
Improving workflow and efficiency in the OR has become increasingly important, with the end goal to aid in providing better outcomes for patients. The result has been a growing interest from hospitals across the country to create integrated operating rooms. To achieve full video integrated ORs, many hospitals are now installing booms and mounting monitors and other suspension-mounted accessories, in addition to major surgical lights, to get equipment off the floor. These ceiling-mounted solutions are all designed to integrate the imaging equipment in the room and to help increase the productivity of the staff. The Stryker Dual Flat Panel System is our most recent and advanced ceiling-mounted product offering, designed to simplify the complexities of hospital environments and to enhance the overall surgical experience.
What technical innovations does this product encapsulate and apply to the OR?
Our ROME technology allows the system to be rotated more than 360 degrees without encountering a stop. We also created an ergonomic horizontal handle to ensure major movements and minor adjustments of the system are even easier. This means that when the operating room staff need to position the monitors for optimal viewing, they can do so with minimal effort and without struggling to maneuver the Stryker Dual Flat Panel System.
