Product Profile: Pinnacle™ X Ray Sensor Sheaths by Kerr™ TotalCare
Barrier sheath helps to prevent cross contamination.
Adhering to effective infection control protocols is key to the safe delivery of oral care. Clinicians can enhance their efficiency in this task by using disposable barriers such as Pinnacle X-Ray Sensor Sheaths, the newest line of disposable barriers from Kerr TotalCare that are impermeable to blood and viruses during digital radiography. Not only do these disposable barriers cut back on room setup and teardown time, but they also reduce equipment exposure to liquid cleaners and disinfectants. Pinnacle X-Ray Sensor Sheaths are custom fit X-ray sensor barriers that help to protect products from harmful disinfectants and patients from potential exposure to infectious pathogens.
BEHOLD THE BARRIER
Featuring ultra-soft materials, soft seams, and minimal excess plastic, Pinnacle X-Ray Sensor Sheaths are designed to put both patients and practitioners at ease. Clinicians benefit from their ease of use and protection against cross-contamination. Each box and individual sleeve are clearly marked to reflect the specific sensor, increasing efficiency and convenience. In addition to helping to provide protection from bacteria and other pathogens, the disposable sheaths are designed to help improve patient comfort. The trimming of excess plastic also helps reduce the likelihood of a patient gagging during diagnostic imaging.
Kerr TotalCare is the proud manufacturer of Pinnacle barrier products. Custom-fit X-Ray Sensor Sheaths are presently available for DEXIS Platinum, Kodak Size 0, Kodak Size 1, Kodak Size 2, Schick CDR Size 1, Schick CDR Size 2, Schick CDR Elite Size 1, and Schick CDR Elite Size 2.
