ClipVac Hair Removal System
CareFusion announced availability of the ClipVac hair removal system from Surgical Site Solutions, Inc., designed exclusively for a new innovative clipper handle from CareFusion.
The ClipVac system connects to CareFusion’s new surgical
clippers and is designed to improve the current hair removal
practice by using vacuum technology to capture hair clippings
as the hair is cut at the source. The ClipVac system saves time
by capturing an average of 98.5 percent of the hair and airborne contaminants at the source, reducing the need for a secondary process of clean up. Test data supports vacuum technology as a safe, highly effective, and efficient alternative when
hair removal is carried out in the surgical or ancillary setting.
The new clippers are designed to dramatically improve
ergonomic feel and performance and encourage proper hand
position and application. The new clippers can also be used in
wet or dry conditions. The refined, balanced design naturally
promotes proper blade angles and the correct use of the clippers, which limits skin irritation for the patient as compared to
