Charlottesville, Virginia – February 17, 2012 – MicroAire Value Options is proud to announce the release of high-quality replacement arthroscopy shaver blades and burs as part of its Velocity™ Sports Medicine Series.
The new blades and burs are designed for resecting soft tissue, and for cutting and shaping bone during arthroscopic shoulder and knee procedures, including ACL replacement, AC joint repair and rotator cuff repair.
MicroAire is the first and only company to offer single-use, value-priced replacement arthroscopy shaver burs and blades, designed to fit shaver systems produced by other manufacturers, including Smith & Nephew® Dyonics® and Linvatec® Systems.
In making the announcement, Kamran Shibli, General Manager of MicroAire’s Value Options business, said, “Velocity shaver blades and burs from MicroAire are functionally identical to the products sold by shaver manufacturers. Guided by our singular mission, this is another step forward in providing innovation and value to healthcare professionals. In today’s tough economic times, there has never been a better time to buy from MicroAire – allowing surgeons and facilities to achieve superior clinical outcomes with gold-standard, FDA-approved products, without breaking the bank.”
Advantages of Velocity™ Sports Medicine Series Arthroscopy Shaver Blades and Burs:
- Reduced friction for easier soft-tissue removal
- Optimal design for reduced clogging
- Exacting control for ease and precision
- Razor sharp for aggressive cutting
- Innovation and quality at a lower cost
The Velocity™ Sports Medicine Series is a new brand for MicroAire, and it continues the company’s tradition of being first-to-market with disposable products that are functionally identical in quality to other manufacturers’ products, while offering genuine cost savings to hospital facilities.
Indeed, MicroAire was the first company to offer value-priced, sterile-packaged disposable blades, burs, rasps, twist drills, wires and pins, all designed to fit other manufacturers’ systems – and MicroAire’s line of replacement disposables continues to expand alongside new product introductions from other companies. For instance, last year MicroAire introduced a complete line of replacement disposable products for Stryker’s® System 6 series of powered orthopaedic instruments.
