Clinical Innovations to Launch traxi® Retractor at FIGO World Congress

, the largest healthcare manufacturer exclusively focused
on labor and delivery, will unveil the traxi® Panniculus Retractor at
the International
Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) World Congress
Vancouver, beginning Oct. 4. This will mark the first worldwide trade
show for the device, which is already in use in more than 280 hospitals
throughout North America.

As part of Clinical Innovations’ commitment to improving the lives of
mothers and their babies throughout the world, the traxi Panniculus
Retractor is a device used to safely and effectively hold the panniculus
(or excess abdominal skin) during Cesarean delivery particularly on
higher risk obese patients to ensure that surgical teams can focus on
providing the best possible care.

The traxi device will be one of many innovations in obstetrics and
gynecology that will be presented at the FIGO World Congress, an event
built around advancing and addressing the many issues that affect
women’s health. FIGO is a worldwide non‐profit organization that
represents obstetricians and gynecologists throughout 125 countries and

“Recognizing clinical needs and developing safe, reliable, intuitive
solutions that can help improve outcomes is part of our core values,”
said Jeffrey Bradford, Vice President, Global Marketing for Clinical
Innovations. “The traxi device is just one example of our extensive
product portfolio focused in labor and delivery. We look forward to
sharing ideas and new solutions with clinicians at FIGO.”

Of the approximately 7,000 expected attendees at the FIGO World
Congress, nearly 30 percent will represent the Americas, 30 percent from
Asia, 30 percent from Europe and roughly 10 percent from other areas of
the world.
