The TD-100 is the only automated disinfector for transesophageal (TEE) probes. Designed to eliminate the need for manual reprocessing of these delicate probes, the TD-100 is similar in function to the widely used endoscopic reprocessors found in most CS and endoscopy departments, but automatically completes the disinfection and rinse cycles in less than 18 minutes. The TD- 100 uses a fresh bottle of TD-5 (a glutaraldehyde-based disinfectant) for each cycle. The TD-5 bottle is pierced inside the TD-100 to eliminate splashes and spills and the advanced vapor management system adsorbs chemical vapors, further protecting the user. A printed validation is generated at the end of the completed cycle.

ARJOs Bariatric MaxiSlide products offer a full line of sliding surfaces including MaxiSlide sheets, and small body length tubes for bed boosting and lateral transfers. The MaxiSlide products virtually eliminate physical strain on staff when performing in-bed transfer and movement tasks, according to the company. The sheets are designed to prevent skin irritation, friction, and shear since the patient remains on the same surface throughout the transfer, with movement occurring between two layers of the sheets. These sliding sheets also make applying slings onto very large patients easier.
The ValiMed System, a new medication safety technology that accurately validates medications and concentrations in seconds, uses ultraviolet (UV) light in conjunction with sophisticated software and a simple user interface to verify both solid and liquid medications. ValiMed is used for end-product testing to validate high-impact medications and multi-dose batches are compounded accurately before being dispensed to patients. ValiMed also may be used to validate narcotic returns and detect counterfeit medications.
