Specialist maternity products supplier, Central Medical Supplies (CMS), is offering hospital Trusts a free trial of the Gentleheel heel prick incisor.
Used for infant blood spot sampling, Gentleheel features a tri-bevel blade, which is said to give a smoother, sharper and less traumatic incision. The cutting action of Gentleheel is designed to provide a more consistent incision and features include: multiple visual indicators to reinforce the incision site; permanent blade retraction to minimise possible injury or re-use; and a hardened stainless steel blade to improve accuracy of the incision depth. Designed to provide improved handling, its welded plastic case prevents accidental exposure to the blade. The four different sizes – MicroPreemie, Preemie, Newborn and Toddler – are colour coded for easy selection.
Tracey Pavier-Grant, medical sales director at Central Medical Supplies, said: “Gentleheel, which is an arch-shaped incision device, allows healthcare professionals to take sufficient blood samples first time. This causes less distress to the infant and saves a hospital trust time and money. For a limited time, we’re offering hospital Trusts a free trial of Gentleheel so healthcare professionals can try out the product on infants in their care.”
