Surface Cleaners in an Eco-Friendly Package 

PDI Healthcare’s Super Sani-Cloth Germicidal Disposable Wipes are now available in a softpack, which contains 80% less plastic than the company’s traditional large canister dispensers. Each space-saving pack holds 80 wipes and is designed with ease of use in mind. The wipes are effective with two-minute contact times against SARS-CoV-2 and more than 30 microorganisms, making them ideal for daily use where efficient cleaning and broad coverage are needed.


Guide Patients to Surgical Success

Avanos Medical’s PainBlock Pro platform educates, engages and empowers patients during their post-op recoveries. The secure and HIPAA-compliant app provides patients with access to clinical instructions, informative videos, notifications about their care plan and daily check-in surveys. The survey responses give providers a complete picture of patients’ recoveries and the app provides notifications of individuals who require attention. PainBlock Pro automates much of the education and follow-up care typically conducted by providers, who can access daily patient-reported outcomes — including pain levels and opioid usage — to closely track their recoveries and help them achieve optimal outcomes.


Next Gen Power Tools for Small Bone Procedures

DePuy Synthes, the orthopedic company of Johnson and Johnson, launched the UNIUM System as the newest addition to its power tools portfolio for use across small bone, sports medicine and spine procedures. The system is comprised of two handpieces — a modular device and a dedicated reciprocating saw — along with several attachments and cutting tools. Both handpieces are driven by a high-capacity lithium-ion battery and electronic control unit, eliminating the need to perform intraoperative battery changes. The UNIUM System, which was designed to maximize surgical precision and surgeon comfort, is lighter, smaller and more powerful than previous generations.
