Modern Interventional Radiology and Cardiology procedures requiring access to arteries utilise a sterile drape over the patient exposing only the access site. Keeping the drape off a patient’s face reduces patient anxiety and allows visual communication. The Adept Drape Support uses unique lockable articulating joints, to provide positioning versatility and a convenient work surface. Designed, tooled and manufactured by Adept to CE certification, the Drape support was released to Market in September 2018.
