Medline has developed a close-shave foil head attachment for clinicians (such as neurosurgeons) who still want a completely smooth surface not achievable with a regular clipper blade. Similar to a consumer face shaver blade, the foil used in conjunction with either MediClip's regular universal blade or coarse hair blade provides a smooth shave without the risk of nicking that a razor might cause.
In response to medical evidence indicating that shaving a surgical incision site increases the risk of postoperative infection, Medline Industries has developed the single-use disposable MediClip Sterile O.R. Clipper to assist hospitals in becoming 100 percent razor free. The new sterile surgical clipper has an ergonomic handle designed to be held at a 30-degree angle so the clipper is flat against the patient's skin.

The RapidBlue Endovascular Cooling & Warming System is a closed-loop, catheter-based system that can modulate whole body temperature without fluid induction. It consists of a disposable endovascular heat transfer catheter, administration cassette and a console. The distal portion of the catheter has a flexible, metallic temperature control element (TCE) that is cooled or warmed by sterile saline circulated within it from the RapidBlue Console.
The PerfectTemp warming system is permanently placed on the operating table where it is always available and ready to fight hypothermia. A timer activates the pad in the morning before the surgery schedule begins and turns off at the end of the day automatically. A heating element sandwiched between the foam layers warms patients on contact with the pad surface.
The ST-026 temperature therapy pad increases blood and oxygen delivery to the lower leg. Used with the popular HTP-1500 heat pump, the ST-026 provides hours of continuous, low-level heat therapy for drug free pain relief and increased circulation.
