Harvard Healthcare launches single-use hip arthroscopy instruments

11 Nov 2010

Harvard Healthcare will be unveiling their first single-use hip arthroscopy access system at MEDICA 2010, together with a unique range of handheld disposable arthroscopic/ endoscopic instruments.

With hip arthroscopy surgery growing at a major rate across the globe, Harvard Healthcare’s innovative product range is at the forefront of the sector; with their keyhole surgery system offering an alternative and less painful option for patients over open invasive surgery.

Developed in collaboration with a leading international hip arthroscopist, the complete single-use hip access system provides easy access into the joint, eliminating the need for costly reusable hip arthroscopy instruments and reduces the problems and infection risks associated with cleaning and re-sterilising narrow lumen instruments.

Harvard’s disposable hand-held instrument range will also be showcased at the event. Replacing traditional scissor-handle style devices, Harvard’s products offer a pen-like alternative, including a squeezable grip option — affording the surgeon a more precise, ergonomic and intuitive solution.
Sue Allison, Business Director at Harvard Healthcare, said: “With the UK currently performing over 3500 hip arthroscopy procedures each year, we understand the importance of the market as well as the shortcomings. We are hoping MEDICA will offer us the opportunity to meet with potential business partners from across the world to discuss the potential of working together to provide a sound solution for clinicians.”
Also on display will be Harvard’s range of sports injury equipment, including ActiveWrap, their range of thermal compression supports used for heat and ice therapy which have been designed in conjunction with orthopaedic physicians and physical therapists.
Information will also be available on Harvard’s non-leak cannula which can be used independently or with existing cannulae. The non-leak cannula will optimise fluid management and the surgeon’s operative view.
Harvard Healthcare will be in hall 16 on stand G10 at Medica 2010 which is taking place between 17–20th November 2010.
