Ergonomic Product Safe-T-Shield™ is intended for use as a barrier between patient and clinician, capturing aerosol and spatter that gets past the HVE. It consists of a wheeled machine that is placed to the side of the patient, and a moveable arm that arches over the chair to hold the shield between the patient and clinician.
Patient Comment: “Having this shield over my face didn’t noticeably affect my visit. I could hear it but it wasn’t unlike any other procedure.”
Clinician Comment: “A 45° or 90° HVE tip fits very well under the shield.”
