PITTSBURGH, PA (PRWEB) December 21, 2015
An inventor from Washington, DC, wants to optimize patient safety while the patient is being positioned for medical procedures. "As a veteran operating-room nurse, I’m familiar with the difficulty of keeping patients’ hands, wrists and forearms safe during patient positioning," she said. "Though many techniques have been tried, none of them are very reliable nor effective, which increases the risk of nerve and/or crush injuries, as well as costly litigation. In order to solve this serious problem I developed the HAND PROTECTOR."
This device provides more reliable protection for a patient’s hand, wrist and forearm while he or she is being positioned by medical staff. It avoids accidental nerve and/or crush injuries. It also avoids costly litigation. Overall, it promotes safety and peace of mind. It features two halves that are hinged together along one edge. The interior is lined with removable and disposable gel. Easy to use and durable, it's ideal for surgeons in a wide variety of medical fields. Overall, the HAND PROTECTOR sets a new standard of care.
The original design was submitted to the Washington, DC office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
