While companies can’t control the market forces at play, they can take action to mitigate the risk and impact of supply chain disruption.

How To Control a Radio Frequency (RF) Process

The radio frequency welding and manufacturing process uses electromagnetic energy and pressure to fuse and permanently bond vinyl, thermoplastic, and coated materials to produce a specific product - all according to customer requirements. Using this RF sealing process, a distinct, one-piece perpetual bond is formulated that is both solid and resistant to ripping or tearing.

JUNE Medical has announced the launch of the Galaxy II™ LUX – the worlds’ first self-retaining ring retractor with light.

JUNE Medical notes the Galaxy II LUX combines the award-winning Galaxy II retractor with Vivo Surgical’s KLARO™ in vivo LED device, which can be mounted on the retractor via a purpose-designed clip.

This unique partnership provides surgeons with a revolutionary solution, giving them better access and a clearer view of the surgical site, and eliminating the disadvantages of using overhead lighting or personal head torches.

JUNE Medical notes the lightweight, self-retaining Galaxy II retractor features unique cam locks that allow single-handed adjustment on the frame, and there are multiple frames and hooks to suit a range of procedures. The KLARO lighting tip then offers the highest surgical light intensity on the market, with four settings to match the needs of different operations, while maintaining a safe operating temperature of below 38 °C. With a650 mm long cable, compact 4.6 mm diameter and flexible structure, the light can be effortlessly positioned during surgery to offer up to ~340° of illumination inside deep and narrow wounds.

The Galaxy II LUX is ideal for use in a variety of procedures, including ENT, colorectal, orthopedic, gynecological and other open surgeries. Angela Spang, CEO of JUNE Medical commented: “We are thrilled to be working with Vivo Surgical to offer this gamechanger. This kit helps to overcome a number of pain points, ensuring uniform site illumination from within an open surgical cavity, reducing the need for light repositioning and eliminating the risk of patient infection from contaminated light handles, as well as improving ergonomics for surgeons. We’re also excited about the opportunities this kit will bring for our charity work in countries where surgical lighting is sometimes a smartphone torch!”
