New Stryker Device Offers Hospitals Environmental And Bottom-line Benefits

Stryker’s Sustainability Solutions division, a leader in medical device reprocessing, today introduced Restep®, the company’s pioneering deep vein thrombosis (DVT) solution. Restep addresses a critical need in the market for comprehensive device solutions that deliver fiscal and environmental value to hospitals by integrating original manufactured and reprocessed medical devices. Its introduction signifies the growing role suppliers play in offering quality care solutions that address the needs of clinicians, hospitals and patients while benefiting the environment.

“Restep marks the first time we can tangibly demonstrate what the integration of reprocessing into the OEM business model means for the industry. By creating a medical device solution that integrates original manufactured and reprocessed devices, we have introduced a new precedent in how technology suppliers can offer value to hospitals,” said Lars Thording, Stryker Sustainability Solutions’ senior director of marketing and public affairs. “Value lies in true sustainability – environmental and financial sustainability. With Restep, hospitals will be able to opt for less environmentally impactful products without sacrificing quality or financial prudence.”

“To our hospital, Restep will bring better value all around. We expect patients to be more comfortable and our supply chain managers will not only see the convenience and efficiency, but also reduced environmental impact,” said Tony Benedict, Abrazo Healthcare’s vice president of supply chain. “The launch of Restep not only elevates Stryker Sustainability Solutions’ role as a key supplier to our hospital, but sets the bar for other suppliers, as well.”

Restep provides hospitals that reprocess with a single-source opportunity for DVT compression sleeves and allows hospitals an opportunity to lower costs by minimizing their number of suppliers.
