UNION CITY, Calif., Oct. 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Mizuho OSI®, a leading manufacturer of specialty surgical tables, pressure management solutions, and table specific patient care kits, is introducing its newest technology, the Levó Head Positioning System at NASS 2017. Using an innovative electro-mechanical technology to enable the device's motion, the Levó System introduces a new level of actuated control and precision to head positioning for all spine procedures from cervical to sacrum. The Company is unveiling the technology in booth #717 for physicians to experience the elevated positioning capabilities afforded by Levó.
Positioning patients for spine surgery is essential for optimal operating conditions and operative site exposure. The Levó System is designed to provide the surgical team with an interface that is safe, fast, and easy to engage. The technology's unique interface places the surgeon in control, supporting initial head positioning and cervical spine corrections throughout the procedure. Various interchangeable modules that support the use of a skull clamp or face pillow comprise a versatile platform that delivers optimal utilization within each practice.
Designed to provide fluid, yet controlled motion, Levó's functionality supports an improved workflow and enhanced surgical access. This is achieved through key modules, including the QuickConnect System, which supports the efficient attachment of a skull clamp, and the Control Handles, which allow for intraoperative adjustments.
"In designing the Levó System, we wanted to offer surgeons a seamless and flexible solution that affords them better control over patient positioning during these delicate procedures," said Greg Neukirch, vice president of Marketing and Sales at Mizuho OSI. "We're proud to unveil a solution we believe works to enhance clinicians' surgical experience, providing for safe and precise care when positioning a patient's head for all prone spine procedures."
Mizuho OSI is offering hands-on demonstrations of the Levó Head Positioning System at NASS 2017 in Orlando, Fla. from October 25-27 in Booth #717.
