Sheffmed, a UK designer and developer of pioneering surgical devices, will be using Arab Health as a platform to launch its new surgical LED Headlight and ‘Crescent Flex’ single use retractor systems.
Situated in Pavilion Hall on Stand C12, Sheffmed’s new LED Headlight is an anatomically designed, single fit device that provides wireless high intensity LED light with unparalleled battery life, further enhanced by a quick release power pack change feature which provides near continuous use.
The system represents two years of research and development and can be sized to fit any head, is ultra-lightweight (200 grams with battery and lamp) and has an integral mount for an optional GoPro camera.
The company’s ‘Crescent Flex’ retractor systems are a unique range for tissue retraction that provide a stable platform which can be adapted to many areas of surgery. Crescent is an articulating arm system that facilitates vertical retraction for areas such as breast surgery and utilises rigid lightweight skin hooks and retractors.
The Flex system is based on the traditional and well documented method of elasticated retraction, what makes ‘Flex’ unique is the ability for the frame to be shaped and moulded by the surgeon to meet personal requirements during surgery. A set of adjustable clamps provide the anchoring point, together with a built-in clamp for any tubing that may be used at the site.
Alan McNulty, Director of Sheffmed, said: “Sheffmed believe in creating real value for our customers, and we do this by providing the latest developments in innovative UK design and technology.
“At Arab Health we’re really looking forward to introducing our new LED Headlight and Surgical Retractors, and also seeking new partners across the Middle East and Australasia.
“Importantly we aim to build a social and dynamic business and drive it forward through nurturing and growing customers while supporting worthwhile causes, such as extensive charitable work with children in Malawi.”
Sheffmed will be located at Stand C12 in the Pavilion Hall at Arab Health.
