MFI is happy to celebrate our partnership with ConMed Linvatec. ConMed offers a diverse range of products for every aspect of medicine. The company was founded in 1970 with the introduction of its first product, the disposable ECG electrode. Since then, ConMed has been at the forefront of medical innovation, creating new products as well as new techniques for their use. Today, ConMed particularly excels in the areas of electrosurgery, cardiology, and sports medicine. At MFI, we proudly carry many of ConMed's products and their accessories.
ConMed Hyfrecator 2000
One of our favorite products from ConMed is the Hyfrecator 2000. The Hyfrecator 2000 is the #1 choice among physicians performing desiccation, coagulation, and fulguration procedures. It is an intensely powerful and unbelievably affordable unit. The Hyfrecator is an ideal option for dermatology, urology, gynecology, plastic surgery, and many other office applications. It is an excellent multi-use generator for any small to medium practice.
The Hyfrecator has several unique features which add to its appeal. Its compact size makes it easily portable and easily mountable on a wall or small rolling stand. It has two power settings: low and high, which can be used for numerous procedures, and conveniently, neither mode requires a patient grounding pad. It is also backed by a one year warranty, with the option of extending to five years.
ConMed engineers all of its electrosurgical generators to operate around the clock at peak performance. The Hyfrecator performs internal self-diagnostic tests every time it is turned on, making it one of the safest office-based electrosurgery units in the world.
The Hyfrecator and its many accessories - probes, electrodes, footswitches, are all available for purchase at MFI.
ConMed PadPro Electrodes
ConMed also offers products for cardiology and critical care. One of the first products offered by ConMed in the early days of the business were electrodes. Over the years, ConMed has improved on the original model, and now provides an extensive catalog of electrodes to satisfy the complex needs of patients and clinicians.
The PadPro Multifunction Electrodes are soft electrode pads which can be used for a number of purposes, including cardioversion, defibrillation, pacing, and monitoring. They have a 36 month shelf life and are available in many different configurations to connect with a variety of patient monitors and defibrillators.
The PadPro electrodes adhere and conform to a patient's body, which not only provides comfort, but also superior current distribution. Once applied to a patient's skin, the PadPro electrodes offer up to 50 shocks, 8 hours of continuous pacing, or 24 hours of patient monitoring. This long service life means electrodes can be changed less frequently, adding a cost-effective benefit to the PadPro electrodes.
What's New for ConMed
ConMed is a leading innovator in the application of allograft tendons for sports medicine. In fact, they have exclusive worldwide marketing rights to sports medicine allograft tissues from the Musculoskeletal Transplant Foundation. Allograft tissues are those which have been taken from donors. They are used for cancer patients, sports injuries, and many more applications, and they have the benefit of decreasing pain and recovery time. ConMed and the MTF are working to make allograft transplants more widely used and accepted in the area of sports medicine.
ConMed continues to work with surgeons, nurses, and researchers to create and perfect new products as well as new surgical techniques, with the goal of making procedures as simple and effective as possible.
