LTR Medical has concluded a distribution agreement with Medovate, the medical device development company which will provide exclusivity for SAFIRA® (SAFer Injection for Regional Anaesthesia) in Australia and New Zealand. Developed in collaboration with anaesthetists in the UK National Health Service (NHS), SAFIRA® is set to help revolutionise standard regional anaesthesia clinical practice. With the use of regional anaesthesia continuing to grow significantly in Australia and New Zealand, SAFIRA® has the potential to make a significant impact. Amid the current COVID-19 pandemic, recent publications have recommended regional anaesthesia be considered whenever surgery is planned for a suspected or confirmed COVID-19 patient. This is because regional anaesthesia preserves respiratory function and avoids aerosolisation and the potential for transmission of COVID-19 compared to general anaesthesia. Already launched across the United States, this distribution agreement to bring SAFIRA® to market in Australia and New Zealand marks a significant further step in making this [...]

LTR Medical is proud to announce its exclusive agreement with Ammut Medical LCC to distribute the MICROi Blade (MiB). The MiB was developed in conjunction with Associate Professor Peter Hebbard from Victoria Australia and is set to revolutionise the Micro Invasive Surgical technique space. The initial clinical experience with the MiB, for minimally invasive ultrasound guided carpal tunnel release in an office practice setting, thus far have been outstanding. Patients walk out post procedure with a band aid in contrast to a 3-4 cm incision and stiches with the standard open procedure. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can affect 3-8% of the adult population and is of particular concern for the aging population. The ability to complete this procedure with a minimal micro invasive technique could revolutionise the surgical management of the Syndrome. Our clinical team is excited at the prospect of facilitating the training for new clinicians across Australia and will be working [...]
An Aged Care group in NSW were looking for a way to deliver antibiotics and opioids to their residents, negating the need for them to attend hospitals. NSW Sales and Education Specialist for LTR Medical Amanda Narvo, introduced them to the Springfusor. The Springfusor is a spring-driven, portable infusion pump that can deliver medication over various time frames depending on the Flow-Control Tubing selected. Amanda conducted the initial presentation to a group of key leaders via Zoom. The group decided to proceed with the Springfusor. “The Springfusor provided the group the opportunity to provide care for their residents in a safe, efficient and inexpensive manner” said Amanda. Since implementation, it was discovered that a locked box was required to allow it to be used with Opioids. Amanda jumped into action and had a prototype manufactured which met the needs of the group. These are now being manufactured. If you have [...]
