Placement of a chest tube into the thoracic cavity has been around for more than 100 years with virtually no change in technique! Imagine driving a Model T car today down the highway – would it be as safe, fast, effective and reliable as a modern car at 65 MPH? The Reactor® offers medical professionals a revolutionary way to insert chest tubes into the thoracic cavity. In other words, it is minimally invasive compared to the open technique! Putting this in perspective, how many appendectomies are still done with an open incision? The Reactor® has been sold since 2015 and has multiple issued and pending patents.
Sharp Medical Products, LLC is also planning even more enhancements in the form of a “generation 2” device with an anticipated availability date of 2019. For more information Click Here
