FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE   – April 2016 – Protection Products Inc. (PPI) has announced the launch of a product innovation, OR Armor™, at this year’s AORN (Association of periOperative Registered Nurses) Conference in Anaheim, California. Unlike any other disposable product currently on the market, OR Armor™ drastically improves safety and efficiency during and following fluid intense cases in operating rooms.

“We heard repetitive concerns at multiple facilities regarding the need for a greater level of protection for surgeons, staff and operating room tables particularly for application in Trauma, Orthopaedics, Caesarean Sections and Organ Transplant Surgery. This is what started us on the path to creating OR Armor™,” stated Jeff Hale, CEO and owner of PPI. “OR Armor™ is a proactive solution that contains fluids before reaching the floor, the feet of the staff or the vital mechanisms of electronic operating room tables.  OR Armor™ provides a solution to this on-going problem plaguing hospitals worldwide.”

OR Armor™ is the first, and currently only comprehensive disposable surgical table protection system on the market. This system not only protects the surgical table but also helps to eliminate the spillage of excess fluids onto the OR staff’s legs, feet and on the floor. Once a surgical table is contaminated it must be thoroughly cleaned and often disassembled and repaired before it can be returned to service. This complication can result in delayed cases, unneeded repair expense, lost time in the OR, and the need for multiple extra surgical beds just to name a few.

“We envision the OR Armor™ line of protection expanding to areas beyond this key solution.  PPI is focused on applying our experience in both design and performance materials to unmet needs through a very unconventional method these days…listening to our customers” commented Hale. “PPI is an innovative company that is continually asking questions, researching needs and delivering solutions.”

PPI showcased the new OR Armor™ product line at the AORN Conference in Anaheim, California April 2nd through 6th.
