EMOVE ARTHROSCOPY

21.02.2024

We want to set new standards in patient care with our dismountable arthroscopy instruments.

 

THE PROBLEM

With all tubular shaft systems, tissue residue accumulates inside the mechanism, which is difficult or impossible to remove residue-free. This poses a risk of infection for the patient.

 

THE SOLUTION

We have combined our arthroscopy instruments with our innovative EMove technology. This allows the instruments to be disassembled at the push of a button and then be cleaned thoroughly.

 

THE ADVANTAGES

  • Maximum cleanliness and patient safety

  • Cost savings due to extended service life

  • Optimum, precise cutting behaviour with high resilience

  • Familiar design and easy handling

How exactly does EMove arthroscopy work? We have created a video that clearly demonstrates the patented technology and how it works

We are convinced that EMove Arthroscopy represents a significant advance in the cleaning of tube shaft systems and raises the standards of hygiene and patient care to a new level.

OUR DIGITAL WAREHOUSE MANAGEMENT

28.09.2023

Digital warehouse management offers numerous advantages over manual warehouse management.

 

For example, it is virtually impossible to confuse storage locations, as each item is assigned a unique storage location and this is recorded digitally. This increases efficiency and minimises the margin for error.

 

In addition, digital warehouse management facilitates batch-pure selection, as the items are recorded with their respective batch number, thus making targeted selection possible.

Another advantage is that any employee can pick items from the warehouse. When the order card is scanned, the system shows the employee the parts list with the respective storage location. Since there is a QR code on each storage box, which the employee scans when picking the goods, the stock level is automatically adjusted in SAP. Should the employee accidentally select the wrong storage location and scan the wrong QR code, this would be indicated in the system.

An image of each item is stored for more clarity. This allows the employee to see at a glance which product it is and avoid picking errors.

 

Through the connection to SAP Business One, an automatic article availability check is performed, which enables timely and accurate inventory control.

 

To summarise, digital warehouse management offers our company numerous advantages. Through the reduction of errors, increased efficiency and fast inventory checking, warehouse management is improved and processes are optimised.
