South Glastonbury, CT (PRWEB) July 26, 2006
Xemarc, LLS of Connecticut, USA (http://www.xemarc.com) announced today that, after several clinical trials, their hollow MCM (Measurement Calibration Marker) and Adhesive Attachment strips have met with resounding success within the radiological and orthopedic communities. Convenience and low cost lead the way in the comments made within the profession. Xemarc reports the radiological and orthopedic communities are accepting their products with such enthusiasm that many are negotiating to include them as part of a starter package distributed with all new CR and Templating systems. Xemarc's MCM's are becoming the standard withinin the industry.
Identifying the need within the medical community for an inexpensive alternative to the heavy and costly calibration objects presently available to the profession, Xemarc researched and developed the manufacturing of their hollow MCM. Their MCM decreases the weight of the marker by 65%, while maintaining radio-opacity and accuracy of dimensions, providing precision measurements on Digital Templating. The advantage of 65% less mass is that the MCM is far less likely to displace on the patient upon movement. Coupled with their newly developed Patient Adhesive Attachment Strip, the MCM remains extremely stable on the patient, while trouble-free removal of the strip and MCM is uncomplicated.
Xemarc reports that the MCM is made from 440A stainless steel; the same quality of stainless steel used for surgical instruments, and is available in both 1 inch (25.4mm) and 25mm diameter sizes. The advantage of the MCM's spherical shape is that the measuring dimensions of the calibration object remain true, no matter what the angle of acquisition may be. Their cost, depending on quantities ordered at their new website, http://www.xemarc.com, can be more than 90% less than the heavy, expensive calibration objects presently available to the profession.
Xemarc's newly developed Adhesive Attachment Strips, for attachment of the MCM to the patient, fills a large need within the radiological and orthopedic communities for an easy and secure way to attach a calibration object to a patient. Made from all hypoallergenic medical grade materials, these 1.75 inch diameter Adhesive Attachment Strips attach securely to the patient and the MCM, while affording effortless removal, similar to a band-aid.
The demand for Xemarc's MCM's and Adhesive Attachment Strips has increased to the point that the company has created a website with information about their products and the convenience of On-line Buying.
