Adept Medical Launches IR Platform, interventional radiology

May 16, 2017 — Adept Medical announced the launch of the IR Platform, designed as an over-patient work surface for vascular and interventional radiology. The platform provides clinical benefits to the current practice of laying procedural equipment over the patient’s legs by offering a stable, radiolucent, height- and length-appropriate solution for femoral artery access procedures. It offers a stable solution for catheter/guide wire manipulation, with a large work area for equipment.

The height of the platform can be adjusted to suit the specific patient size, ensuring the surface’s feathered leading edge can be tuned to the femoral access site. The platform, with its attachable extension, can be set up at two different lengths according to equipment needs.

The stand-alone platform is well suited for shorter wire procedures such as rapid exchange catheter systems and the extended platform is suited for over-the-wire catheter systems or neuro radiology wires.

Placed over the patient’s legs once they are in a supine position on the imaging table, the carbon fiber composite is light, radiolucent, strong and easy to set up for each patient. For restless patients it can also be locked down, ensuring their movement will not dislodge the platform.

The IR Platform will be available for purchase June 1, 2017.
