CareFusion announced availability of the ClipVac hair removal system from Surgical Site Solutions, Inc., designed exclusively for a new innovative clipper handle from CareFusion. The ClipVac system connects to CareFusion’s new surgical clippers and is designed to improve the current hair removal practice by using vacuum technology to capture hair clippings as the hair is cut at the source. The ClipVac system saves time by capturing an average of 98.5 percent of the hair and airborne contaminants at the source, reducing the need for a secondary process of clean up. Test data supports vacuum technology as a safe, highly effective, and efficient alternative when hair removal is carried out in the surgical or ancillary setting. The new clippers are designed to dramatically improve ergonomic feel and performance and encourage proper hand position and application. The new clippers can also be used in wet or dry conditions. The refined, balanced design naturally promotes proper blade angles and the correct use of the clippers, which limits skin irritation for the patient as compared to traditional razors.
