Effective Sterilization Solutions with PodiaClave - the Autoclave for Podiatry & Chiropody

Sterilise Your Podiatry & Chiropody Instruments

The effective sterilization of instruments is an essential part of patient care. Many of the instruments used during podiatry procedures contain hollows or lumens and therefore the best choice of sterilizer is a ‘B’ class, vacuum machine. Use in conjunction with a purpose-built clinical washer disinfector to provide an effective and validated decontamination process..

For mobile practitioners, a portable sterilizer is often the only practical option.

The PodiaClave range of autoclaves sterilize at 134°C and include a printer or data logger for recording cycle data. They are the only UK manufactured podiatry autoclave specifically designed for podiatry and chiropody practices.

Both the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists and The Institute of Chiropodists and Podiatrists recommend that instruments are sterilized in a suitable steam or vacuum autoclave with a sterilizing temperature of 134°C. When buying a new autoclave, you should also look for one that is supplied with a printer or other means of recording the cycle.
