The cleanSTART platform provides hospitals and surgery centers with a systematized approach towards operating room efficiency and inventory control. This technology is based on the concept of integrated modularity for both implants and instruments. cleanSTART offers a unique combination of sterile packaging that features Novastep’s quickTube® nested cylinders and a fully customizable, space saving Implant Dispenser console.

Pomeroy, MD of Portland, Maine explained that “The system is formulated to optimize implant capacity, deployment flexibility and tracking procedures.” The cleanSTART packaging and its associated Dispenser unit are configured to work in seamless tandem with Novastep’s forefootCOMPLETE and forefootEXACT instrumentation platforms. Pomeroy added that “cleanSTART is remarkably convenient and smoothly dovetails with the entire Novastep portfolio, reducing OR footprint, traceability documentation and sterilization costs.”
