1888 Press Release - GSquared Medical enters into an agreement with the medical supply and sales company, Adler Instruments, to distribute the disposable Retentus™ pannus retractor in the med-surg market.
Nashville, TN - The agreement is an important step in GSquared Medical's strategy to expand its product technology to the market. The agreement between Adler Instruments and GSquared Medical ensures the availability of the pannus retractor to the med-surg market.
Retentus™ Pannus Retractor: A pannus retraction system designed to provide better care for the high BMI patient and improve safety for the clinician.
The Retentus™ retractor is cost-effective and utilized to position the high BMI patient to secure the pannus during medical and surgical procedures, which applies and removes quickly. Retentus™ frees up personnel and minimizes the possibility of staff injury related to manipulating and holding up the pannus inter-operatively. Application is subtle, thereby minimizing embarrassment to the patient. Private payer reimbursement to the hospital has been established.
Nearly 30% of the U.S. population is obese. Approximately one-third (6 million) of all patients undergoing general anesthesia in the operating room annually are obese. The need to properly position these patients safely is critical. Retentus™ retractors facilitate secure and predictable retraction, thus providing clinicians and hospitals with a better care option.
"We have a product that can make a difference to the quality of care and safety for patients and clinicians alike. The patient will experience less discomfort all around. The OR staff will experience less injury and save time positioning the patient. With this agreement, we have a premier professional organization distributing our retractors." (Tom Galbierz, Principal Member of GSquared Medical.)
Adler Instruments has the distribution rights of Retentus™ Pannus Retractors in the eastern and southeastern U.S. and other territories shown on their website: http://adlerinstruments.com/contact/.
