More about Hipster

Retentus is designed to enable full access to the procedural site for use in the OR, cath lab and for wound care and wound exposure.  Gloved clinicians and technicians can quickly and efficiently apply the retractors.  They provide repeatable, predictable and reliable retractions every time. Typical devices for positioning the panniculus during procedures require manual pushing or compressing by the clinician or staff, and/or use of tape or other devices to lift and/or raise the tissue to remove it from the procedural site. Once applied, Retentus retractors holds  excess tissue securely and reliably throughout the entire procedure.
