Sterile air zone units for orthopaedic surgery at Drammen Hospital in Norway
Toul Meditech AB has recently sold and installed several sterile air zone units at 3 surgical operation rooms in the Drammen Hospital in Norway.
The devices are being used during all types of orthopaedic surgery.
The orthopaedic surgery department at Drammen has in recent times undergone a major refurbishment with a new ventilation system. In connection to this the Hospital decided to ensure that air cleanliness in the sterile zone could be maintained by using Toul equipment. The Operio Ceiling is used to protect the wound area and instruments during surgical procedures against air-borne bacteria and SteriStay is used to protect the instruments and implants against airborne bacteria.

Toul Meditech (Västerås) has since 2003 successfully developed and marketed its patented and medical technology classified mobile systems for ultraclean laminar airflow. The airflow is distributed directed over the wound area and/or sterile instruments. The airflow constitutes a barrier which reduces the occurrence of bacteria carrying particles and by that the risk for post-op infections is reduced.
