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.

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.

Amanda jumped into action and had a prototype manufactured which met the needs of the group. These are now being manufactured. If you have [...]

Recently Trade & Investment Queensland (TIQ) sprang into action to assist LTR Medical deliver parts necessary to provide medical devices required for an expected increased need. A component supplier in Singapore was unable to manufacture parts required for the Springfusor and V-Set devices due to production difficulties caused by COVID-19. TIQ contacted the relevant Singapore Government department and within 3 days they had helped resolve some supply-chain issues and manufacturing was back at full capacity. LTR Medical is extremely grateful for TIQ’s assistance in making this possible. CEO Lee Rodne said it was great working with TIQ and he appreciated the support provided, resulting in front-line healthcare teams receiving the essential medical devices during the COVID-19 crisis.

Did you know the Springfusor has a 50/60ml model? The larger volume allows delivery of a number of antibiotics. A quick check of the latest edition of The Australian Injectable Drugs Handbook (SHPA) showed around 20 antibiotics suitable for delivery in 50mls. By reducing the volume of the diluent, you are reducing the risk of fluid overload. This is particularly relevant in patients with Renal or Cardiac co-morbidities. Another benefit of using the Springfusor is that patients are not tethered to a large infusion pump and IV pole, allowing mobilisation, which facilitates the potential for admission avoidance and early discharge.
