Columbia-based medical equipment manufacturer Rhythmlink International LLC has released the Quick Connect System, a new product line designed to maximize efficiency and workflow when recording EEG measurements on patients requiring MR or CT imaging.
The Quick Connect System features disposable EEG electrodes arranged in multiple arrays, resulting in fewer connection points and easier organization of bedside lead wires. The launch includes 18 new products numbers.
“We are extremely proud to be releasing the new Quick Connect System,” Shawn Regan, CEO of Rhythmlink International, said in a news release. “Since releasing the first FDA-cleared MR Conditional electrodes several years ago, our team has been working hard to improve the product and to reach the next step in efficient patient care. We believe the Quick Connect System will meet a need in healthcare that many have been waiting for.”
Each new product number features numbered heat shrink and flags designed to assist bedside personnel in easily disconnecting and reconnecting patients without removing the EEG electrodes when the patient requires a CT or MRI. Electrodes are available in three designs.
“These products offer the next level of high efficiency workflow,” said Leah Hanson, Rhythmlink vice president of global sales. “The Quick Connect System not only eliminates the need for removal and reapplication of EEG electrodes when a patient needs a CT or MRI, but reduces the overall time of the disconnection and reconnection process.”
