Safe Orthopaedics Study: Cost Savings with Single-use Instruments -

Study results revealed an average 50% cost-per-patient savings with use of Safe Orthopaedics' single-use instruments vs. reusable ones in the treatment of spinal fractures. Per the study, the average cost per patient of Safe Orthopaedics' single-use instruments is €865 (~US $977), vs. €1, 745 (~$1,971) on average for instruments previously used by Saint-Etienne University Hospital. Compared to a daily cost of hospitalization, the cost of non-reimbursed supplies is halved with single-use instruments (€66/$75 vs. €134/$151 per day). (Safe Orthopaedics SAS, 11/27/18)
