Why do you think readers

more about the product?
Hospitals typically stock a
variety of surgical gowns, making it challenging for clinicians
to select the right gown option
for a procedure. Because of
this, OR staff may end up
under-protected -- or wearing
a higher protection level than
required. AERO Series solves
this challenge by narrowing
this selection to two visually
distinct gowns, resulting in a
streamlined selection process,
reduced order time and greater operational efficiency.
How does this product benefit the surgical team and aid
in better outcomes?
AERO CHROME Performance Surgical Gowns provide the
highest level of fluid and microbial protection (Level 4) in the
critical zones of the gown, as defined by the AAMI Standard.
AERO CHROME Gowns are soft, lightweight, and breathable gowns, providing unprecedented comfort with the high
level of protection surgical teams require for long, fluid-intensive procedures. AERO CHROME is the first and only single
use gown to receive clearance under the new, more stringent
FDA guidelines issued in December 2015.
What technical innovations does the product encapsulate
and apply to the OR?
AERO CHROME’s unique Cool Shield Core fabric technology builds a high-performance fluid barrier into a lightweight
and breathable fabric. The result is a surgical gown that’s like
nothing else in the OR today. Its distinctive, silvery color and
unique V-neck design (patents pending) stand out from other
gowns in the OR, making it easy for clinicians to choose the
gown with the highest level of protection.

OBP Medical ONETRAC
Why do you think readers were interested in
learning more about the product?
ONETRAC is simple yet truly innovative. The
concept has universal appeal. In addition to
being an entirely single-use product (light
source included), ONETRAC eliminates the
hassle and ongoing expense of reusable surgical retractors and fiber optic cords/cables.
How does this product benefit the surgical
team and aid in better outcomes?
Reusable and semi-disposable (reusable with
one or more disposable part or component)
surgical retractors and light sources can be
costly, require maintenance, and increase
risk of cross-contamination when not cleaned
properly after each use. ONETRAC effectively
helps to reduce cost, increase efficiency, and
eliminate unnecessary risk of cross-contamination. In addition, ONETRAC is light weight
and the ONETRAC LED light source does not
produce any damaging heat.
