Following extensive trials, the prestigious centre of ophthalmic education and research, Manchester Royal Eye Hospital, has bought 12 powered QA4 Day Surgery Systems from Anetic Aid Limited.
The QA4s were fitted with a specially developed Ophthalmics Head Section which has movement in three different planes in order to give surgeons and theatre staff maximum accessibility.
Operating as the Ophthalmic Division of the Central Manchester and Manchester Children’s University Hospitals NHS Trust, the eye hospital is Britain’s second largest postgraduate ophthalmic teaching hospital. It provides an extensive range of ophthalmic services for both adults and children which include: The Emergency Eye Centre, The Acute Referral Centre, Ophthalmic Imaging, Ultrasound Unit, Electrodiagnosis, Laser Unit, Optometry, Orthoptics, Manchester Eye Bank and the Ocular Prosthetics Department.
The trials, which took place earlier this year, involved Anetic Aid product specialist Mike Pritchett working alongside surgeons, anaesthetists and theatre staff for five days as they evaluated the equipment in a live situation.
Said Mike:’We’d like to thank everyone who was involved in the trial for their contribution. Ophthalmics is a highly specialised area and we found everyone’s co-operation and feedback invaluable – it’s great to know that you have found the right equipment for your needs.’
