WILMINGTON, N.C. (PRWEB) OCTOBER 04, 2018
Power T Handle, LLC, a surgeon-driven, innovative company, announced today that it has received a Spine Technology Award from Orthopedics This Week during the 2018 National Association of Spine Surgeons (NASS) meeting in Los Angeles, CA last week. The Power T Handle is a surgical instrument that delivers operating room efficiencies through increased speed and reduced surgeon fatigue while preserving tactile feedback and precision in spinal and other surgical procedures. The Spine Technology Awards bring recognition to new, innovative spine surgery products and the teams that created them.
Justin Iorio, MD, orthopedic surgeon at Syracuse Orthopedic Specialists, Syracuse, NY, noted, “The Power T Handle addresses an unmet need in complex spine surgical procedures, and the success of this product can be directly attributed to the benefits it offers surgeons, hospitals and patients. I rely on the Power T Handle in my complex spinal fusion procedures as it saves time in the OR, reduces the strain on the surgeon while providing the feel and precision needed to perform surgical procedures with excellent outcomes.”
This first-of-its-kind, wireless power solution allows for seamless integration of a low speed, high torque power driver that preserves the tactile feel and manual capabilities of a traditional T handle. The low-profile design does not interfere with an intra-operative fluoroscopy, and is compatible with existing surgical instruments. The Power T Handle delivers hassle-free power by eliminating many of the cumbersome features of current power equipment. The Power T Handle is also economical as there is no investment in capital equipment, no reprocessing, no maintenance costs and no batteries to recharge.
Kevin Cahill, MD, PhD, President and Co-founder of Power T Handle, LLC stated, “We are honored to have received The Spine Technology Award. Our team at Power T Handle, LLC is committed to developing disruptive technologies and better power solutions for surgeons.”
