You’ve been using outdated dermatomes with heavy, chunky handles, frustrating and inconvenient consoles and cables, that cause exasperation when it comes to obtaining a smooth graft with precision thickness.
The start-stop process of the ratchet mechanism and difficult-to-use derma-carriers mean that you’re wasting precious time and money just to get inaccurate expansion ratios and very limited wound coverage.
Spring mechanism prevents blades damage
Continuous rotational drive; no intermittent pulling of a ratchet
Cutting axis can easily be replaced
Symmetric V-pattern of grooves derma-carriers prevent sideward movement
Derma-carrier standard length 280 mm – up to 40% extra length
Using old meshing methods to perform any skin transplant procedure has traditionally been a long and frustrating process for both team and patients. You’ve had to deal with fragile meshed skin, faulty expansion ratios that result in inadequate graft coverage as well as wastage of valuable skin, and loss of entire grafts due to one area of infection. All this leads to multiple grafting and OT procedures, increased risk of infection, prolonged hospital stays and ultimately poor patient outcomes.
“I had a young 2-year-old patient with 50% burns. My biggest frustration was not being able to harvest enough viable skin from this tiny body to cover the entire burn surface.
Using the Humeca D42 dermatome meant I could get a precise skin graft even on a small child. With the MEEK skin expansion system, I managed to cover the burn surface with the little skin I had harvested. I was less frustrated and ended up with a happier patient.”
“During previous surgeries, some of my biggest challenges were adequately working dermatomes and ensuring batteries were properly charged. More than this, unsightly scarring from poor harvesting of skin, slow healing and increased donor site morbidity added to my frustration.
Now, especially when performing the MEEK technique, using the Humeca dermatome...there isn’t another I would use. Instrumental Healthcare provides phenomenal products and great technical/backend support.
Don't think too hard about it. Just take the plunge and you won't be upset!”
