How to Use
Screwing the Legs onto the Platform
Screw the legs onto the 4 threads located on the underside of the platform in a clockwise motion and twist firmly to ensure they are secure.
Attaching the Leg Extensions
The optional leg extensions can be used if required, for an extra 110 mm of height.
To attach the blue leg extension onto the leg assembly, screw the open-ended side of the blue leg extension on the threaded end of the leg assembly.
Twist in a clockwise motion until it is tight and secure.
Once this is complete, proceed to assemble the Retrograde IR Platform leg with extension onto the 4 threads located on the underside of the platform in a clockwise motion. Twist firmly to ensure they are secure.
Attaching the Rear Base to the Legs
Attach the rear base onto the Retrograde IR Platform legs by placing the grooves on the base onto the flat surface of the rear legs. Once the rear base has been correctly positioned, secure by pushing the blue locking clips in on both ends of the base to lock onto the legs.
Attaching the Retrograde IR Platform to the Front Lower Base
Place the platform over the patient so the feathered edge is towards the patient’s body.
Place the Retrograde IR Platform over the patient and align the legs to the recesses in the front lower base and then lowering in. Once the front base has been correctly positioned, secure by pushing the locking clips in on both ends of the base to lock in the legs.
Adjusting Platform Surface Height
To adjust the height of the Platform, twist the blue collar anti-clockwise to unlock the leg. Push down on the platform to lower the height so the feathered edge is aligned with the femoral access site.
If you require the platform to be higher, reduce the force pushing down on the platform surface whilst the legs are unlocked. This will allow for the leg height to increase.
Once the platform is at the preferred height, twist the blue collar clockwise to lock the leg. This will allow the leg and platform to stay fixed for the remainder of the procedure.
Attaching the IR Platform Extension
To attach the IR Platform Extension, insert the extension onto the end of the platform until it reaches the two indents. Push the two blue locking clips in that are located on either side of the extension to lock it in place. It will now remain secure for the remainder of the procedure.
Detaching the IR Platform Extension
To detach the IR Platform Extension, pull out the two blue locking clips out to unlock. Pull the extension away from the platform for complete detachment.
Disassembling the IR Platform
To disassemble the IR Platform, pull out the two blue locking clips securing the IR Platform to the front base board.
This will allow for the IR Platform to be lifted off the patient. Once the IR Platform is moved away from the patient, remove the rear base board similarly.
To remove the legs, turn the IR Platform over on a flat surface to unscrew all four legs in an anti-clockwise motion.
To detach the blue leg extensions, unscrew the full leg assembly including the leg extensions, in an anti-clockwise motion to remove them from the platform.
Further twist the leg assembly to remove the leg extension completely. Repeat this action for all four leg assembly.
Slide the front base board out from underneath the mattress so it is completely removed.
Using the ArmSure with the Retrograde IR Platform
If you find your patient to be restless, the Retrograde IR Platform is compatible with the ArmSure, an arm immobilisation solution with the added benefit of scatter radiation protection.
Retrograde IR Platform Storage
The Retrograde IR Platform can be hung on a wall when not in use, if the facility allows.
To store the Retrograde IR Platform:
Ensure the front and rear bases are in place.
If you have an IR Extension, clip this into place onto the platform.
Hang the platform onto the hooks by the front base.
