    Product Reviews: C-SATS and Traxi



    As much as I love this product, I cannot give the folks at Clinical Innovations too many innovation stars because the Traxi is really just the best iteration of similar things many of us have been doing for years. That said, they did it, they got it right, and nobody else put all the pieces together in such a common-sense, straightforward fashion. So, kudos to the Traxi.




    Clinical Transformative Potential

    Performing safe cesarean deliveries on significantly obese patients is not to be taken lightly. These cases can be very difficult and present a variety of added dangers to both mother and baby. Having a simple, reliable, and reproducible way to mitigate some of the unique challenges a large pannus presents is essential. I think Traxi is that answer in a package.




    I really, really, really hate holding back the pannus when doing cesarean deliveries. I am old and weak and invariably come away with a sore shoulder and sweat-soaked scrubs.

    The Traxi Panniculus Retractor with Retentus Technology is as perfect a solution to the pannus problem as I have ever tried. This product is a winner . . . a big-time winner.

      Thanks for the write-up Dr. Greenberg. C-SATS is very excited to be working with OB/GYNs around the world to assess and improve their technical skills.
