Famed Żywiec presents Famed ARTHERO, a premiere system for shoulder surgery that responds to the diverse needs of surgeons and nurses. The system streamlines work by accelerating preparation for surgery and patient positioning, regardless of the individual habits of the medical staff. Its functionality was consulted e.g. with one of the best European specialists in shoulder orthopedics. The premiere of the Famed ARTHERO system takes place on Tuesday, January 31st at 11 AM and 2 PM (GST) at stand S2.A50 in Dubai World Trade Center. Famed ARTHERO is compatible with all operating tables available on the market, including Famed OPTIMA 5.20, a table designed for precision surgery in many fields of medicine.
A good operating table has value itself, however the essential complement of this product are the appropriate accessories, as they play the role of the same importance during surgery. Reliability, wide adjustment ranges or high speed of service affect the perception of the entire set created by the table and additional equipment.
Famed Żywiec is dynamically developing this segment of the company’s product portfolio, creating tools that ensure better working conditions and greater precision during operations.
The latest example is Famed ARTHERO, a system for shoulder arthroscopy. It was created, among others, in cooperation with M.D. Roman Brzóska, an outstanding specialist and a member of the board of the Shoulder Section of the European Association of Sports Orthopedics, Knee Surgery, and Arthroscopy.
Michał Grossy, product manager at Famed Żywiec explains: “After two years of clinical tests, we are introducing a new system for shoulder joint surgery. We developed Famed ARTHERO in cooperation with world-class surgeons from various countries. Our main goal was to create an accessory that would shorten the time of preparation of the patient and could offer more space for the arthroscope, considering the multitude of surgical methods”.
“Hundreds of hours of doctors’ work observation and discussions with them about the functioning of individual elements led into the final effect which is a solution that facilitates the performance of the procedure, regardless of individual habits. Not only artificial intelligence (AI) or digital technologies allow us to create valuable solutions. Interest in our accessory even before its official premiere is proof of the effectiveness of our activities” he adds.
Famed ARTHERO is made of aluminium and HPL material. The entire structure can be adjusted with the use of a remote control or with the assistance of a gas spring. One of the advantages of the accessory is the possibility of its assembly by one person, which can be achieved thanks to its low weight and applied functional solutions. The tabletop can be equipped with various types of accessories to support the patient’s head, e.g. a unique helmet, designed to meet the needs of a surgeon and an anaesthesiologist.
Famed ARTHERO will be presented for the first time during Arab Health 2023 at stand S2.A50 on Tuesday, 31st of January; 11 AM and 2 PM (GST).
The Famed ARTHERO system is compatible with all operating tables on the market. Famed Żywiec is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of equipment in this category. In this segment, it successfully uses e.g. carbon, a material being still the «technology of tomorrow» in the medical sector. It is characterized by good X-ray transparency and less susceptibility to damage. Famed’s carbon family of operating tables, apart from Famed OPTIMA, also includes Famed FLARE, a table for vascular surgery with a record-breaking tabletop translucency parameter (0.33 mm AI).
Marek Suczyk, vice president of Famed Żywiec comments: “Carbon responds to the needs of the medical community, not only by facilitating medical imaging. What is equally important, it increases the safety of this procedure, due to the reduction of the radiation dose that has particular importance to doctors and nurses. Carbon is currently the main material used by us in the construction solutions of operating tables. Famed OPTIMA 5.20 that we present during Arab Health, is undoubtedly one of the most interesting operating tables in the segment of products dedicated to precision surgery”.
Famed OPTIMA 5.20 is made of high-quality carbon fiber combined with AISI 316L stainless steel. These materials ensure durability, good translucency properties and a unique design. The longitudinal shift of the table is 400 mm that enables X-ray imaging in the 360° range over a length of 890 mm. With the use of appropriate accessories the length of the imaging window reaches up even to 1500 mm. Among other functionalities offered by Famed OPTIMA 5.20 are remote control, electric wheel lock, modular design, and a maximum capacity of 460 kg. In the «low» variant it is also one of the lowest mobile structures in the world.
Famed OPTIMA can be used, for example in neurosurgery, orthopaedics, cardiology, bariatrics, gynaecology and general surgery. Currently, doctors in several dozen countries use Optima operating tables as Famed delivered several hundred copies of this universal model to the market.
