HATE WASTED TIME IN YOUR OPERATING ROOM?
Fed up with the bipolar forceps foot pedal?
(It's actually a bigger problem than most realize.)
Here is an easier way:
The BiPAD cord connects to YOUR forceps.*
BIPAD IS MAGNIFIED FOR BETTER VIEWING.
Connects to your generator.
Detachable Hand Switch
* Use your forceps.
BiPAD is TRANSFORMATIVE.
This is BiPAD!
It replaces your bipolar forceps cord!
BiPAD is a bipolar forceps cord with an integrated hand switch that connects your forceps to your generator.
In other words, BiPAD is the bipolar forceps cord with the "foot pedal" built-in as a hand switch.
YOU PROBABLY ALREADY KNOW THIS:
BIPOLAR FORCEPS ELECTROSURGERY IS MUCH SAFER THAN MONOPOLAR BUT ACTIVATING THE BIPOLAR FORCEPS WITH THE FOOT PEDAL IS PROBLEMATIC AT BEST.
FOR EXAMPLE, YOU ENCOUNTER HEMORRHAGING:
You apply the Bipolar Forceps to the vessel.
Then you reach for the foot pedal - DELAY!
Then you look down to find the foot pedal - DELAY!
Then you call for the circulator to help - DELAY!
Then you Wait...
Finally, you COAGULATE.
And for surgeons, Hemorrhage + Delay = STRESS
Apply for the Bipolar Forceps to the vessel.
+ SAVINGS $$:
DO THE MATH: BiPAD Savings per Case:
How many minutes saved per case?: ___ (12 min *)
X Operating Room Cost per Minute: ___ ($50/min)
= BiPAD savings per Case: ___ ($600/case)
+ Reduced aggravation, staff burden, risk of crawling on the floor, risk of handling filthy foot pedals, postural pain, etc.
Enter your own numbers into this equation. Even if you save just one minute per case, you will save money in every case with BiPAD.
Wasted Time to include in your analysis:
Waiting for the bipolar foot pedal to be deployed.
Searching for a foot pedal with your feet.
Searching the foot pedal by looking down.
Waiting for staff to crawl under the table.
Broken foot pedals.
REDUCED RISK = REDUCED EXPENSE:
Work-related Injuries can and do occur when staff are required to crawl under the operating room table on their hands and knees during surgery to re-locate the bipolar foot pedal. If BiPAD prevents even one of these injuries, the facility benefits beyond monetary measure.
Our surveys indicate that staff are asked to crawl under the operating table an average of 2.3X per surgery.
BiPAD is SAFER:
Have you ever resorted to using monopolar with all of its risks just because it has a hand switch?
Or to "buzzing" a surgical forceps clamped onto a bleeder with the Bovie® monopolar?
Why do plastic surgeons REQUIRE the use of bipolar forceps over monopolar electrosurgery when closing an incision?
Because bipolar forceps equals:
lower infection risk, and
better cosmetic results.
You know this already!
But until BiPAD, the monopolar pencil with its built-in hand-switch was just so much more convenient that it was easier to ignore the downsides of monopolar.
WE LOVE BIPAD BECAUSE IT MAKES BIPOLAR FORCEPS EASIER THAN USING A BOVIE®.
Easy to learn.
Easy to Use.
Easy to Implement.
Saves time and expense.
Reduces surgeon & staff burden.
Reduces postural pain and fatigue.
Simply replace your cord with the BiPAD® cord.
No CAPEX: Use your forceps and your generator.
WITH BiPAD, the Pedal IS Optional.
BiPAD is the only bipolar forceps cord with a built-in hand switch.
It was designed so that the hand-switch is detachable, revert BiPAD to a standard cord for those who need more time to adapt.
And, for surgeons with a sense of legacy, it works with the foot pedal.
In other words, BiPAD is designed to replace every bipolar forceps cord in your facility.
WHAT DO YOU DESERVE?
FASTER, MORE CONVENIENT "ACTIVATION" TIME.
NOT HAVING TO ASK STAFF TO ACTIVATE THE FOOT PEDAL.
REDUCED POSTURAL PAIN.
REDUCED TIME STARING AT YOUR OWN FEET.
REDUCED STAFF TIME UNDER THE OR TABLE.
REDUCED PEDAL REPAIR AND REPLACEMENT EXPENSE.
REDUCED RISK FOR SURGEONS, STAFF, AND PATIENTS.
WHAT SURGEONS ARE SAYING:
Codman, Malis Version, hand switch detached
The BiPAD® allows me to control the bipolar cautery which frees up the surgical scrub to focus on progressing the case. The BiPAD® provides a safer way to cauterize around sensitive structures by eliminating the verbal delay between surgeon and surgical scrub.

MAKE THE SWITCH!
BiPAD® (BiPolar Activation Device) is a sterile cord that connects bipolar forceps to the electrocautery generator while providing a hand switch that can replace or supplement the foot pedal.
The BiPAD® Bipolar Cord is compatible with most standard 2-prong forceps and most electrocautery generators.
The switch and actuator can be reversibly detached allowing the BiPAD® cord to revert to a standard cord.
BiPAD® is a consumable, sterile cord that simply replaces the cord you now use to connect your forceps to your electrocautery generator.
BiPAD® is not just more convenient and safer, BiPAD® TRANSFORMS bipolar forceps electrosurgery.
Think of BiPAD as a
Quality Improvement Initiative
in your facility.
