ECA Medical Instruments to Show World’s First Cannulated Disposable Instruments & Implant Fixation Kits at AAOS

Orthopaedic implant makers, hospitals and surgery centers are saving over $1,000 per surgery and all procedures with ECA’s disposable instruments and procedural kits.

Thousand Oaks, CA – ECA Medical Instruments, the leading designer and manufacturer of single-procedure torque-limiting and fixed-driver surgical instruments and procedural kits for the medical industry and surgeons worldwide, will be exhibiting its novel disposable orthopaedic and spine implant instruments and fixation kits at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) conference in Las Vegas. The exhibition will be held at the Venetian/Sands EXPO March 25-27.

ECA will be exhibiting its patented single-procedure or disposable instruments and sterile packed kits, which provide dramatic cost savings across the industry, improved patient safety and OR efficiencies. ECA products are designed to secure the full range of trauma, extremity, small bone, general recon and spine implants including cervical, thoracic and lumbar fusions. The company is unveiling the industry’s first disposable cannulated torque-limiters, ratchets and fixed-driver instruments, which are critical for surgeons to secure implants via minimally invasive surgeries (MIS).

“We’re helping implant designers transform healthcare economics by providing robust disposable instruments and kits as alternatives to costly reusable tools,” said James Schultz, ECA’s Executive Vice President. “Adoption of disposable instruments and kits across the market is providing hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers (ASCs) cost savings in inventory and operating costs, improving patient safety, reducing risk of surgical site infection and increasing OR efficiency levels.

Located at AAOS Booth #5656, the company will be displaying its complete line of instruments and operational samples of orthopaedic, trauma, extremity spine implant fixation instruments and fixation kits.

ECA develops semi-custom and fully custom instruments and procedural kits for the full range of orthopaedic and spine implants. ECA’s products are developed for key industry OEM implant makers and come both sterile-ready and sterile-packed making them easy to inventory and ready to use.
