Dravon Medical’s disposable A-Clamps are commonly used in dialysis centers, blood banks, and other treatment centers where safe occlusion of tubular structures, such as silicone tubing, is critical. They are trusted across the healthcare industry, known for their reliability, and used in a wide range of healthcare applications. One such application is by OEMs in the development of surgical kits.
Durable and lightweight construction
The Dravon A-Clamp is constructed from a high-strength nylon composite and provides a lightweight, low-cost, reliable occluding clamp that is both reusable and disposable.
The A-Clamp features an aluminum rivet that is radio-opaque, which means it can be detected on a radiograph. This is particularly useful during a wide variety of procedures.
Reusable medical device
The A-Clamp may be safely reused. It is compatible with autoclave sterilization and ethylene oxide sterilization, and has been tested effective up to five sterilization cycles. It may be included in both sterile and non-sterile medical device kits. Since it is an injection-molded plastic design, the A-Clamp is an inexpensive and safely disposable device.
This A-Clamp is available in three different colors including the best-selling “True Blue”, and the red and yellow alternatives. The available color options allow healthcare professionals such as nurses to organize usage by application or shift, and distinguish at a glance the exact function of the device.
Dravon Medical’s T-Clamp is used for securing drapes, towels and sponges that are used in the course of a wide range of medical procedures. This device is specifically designed to delicately, but securely clamp down on all sorts of fabrics thanks to its large, flat, and ribbed jaws. The T-Clamp can be potentially utilized in surgical kits, radiology kits and is available in sterile packs direct from Dravon.
The jaws of the T-Clamp incorporate a textured surface that ensures you can secure towels, sponges, and drapes effectively in order to prevent them from slipping over the course of medical procedures. Best of all, this textured surface is designed to create a firm grip on virtually all types of fabric.
Plastic and lightweight construction
Just like its sister product, the A-Clamp, the T-Clamp has been crafted from a reinforced nylon material and an aluminum rivet. This construction makes the clamp both sturdy, resistant to breaking, and lightweight. This clamp is designed for the utmost reliability during use.
This feature of Dravon Medical’s T-Clamp is helpful for both surgical and radiology kits. The T-Clamp features an aluminum rivet that is radio-opaque. This means it can be easily detected on a radiograph.
Sterilization and Re-use
