An innovator for more than 30 years, MPI is known for creating better, faster and easier patient positioning tools for physicians, technicians and medical directors across the country.
During the ACP show, MPI sales representatives will exhibit the company’s VasScan™ Table, ideal for phlebologists, radiologists and sonologists. The VasScan™ Table is designed to improve ultrasound images and offer a unique design for vascular procedures by providing a 30° reverse Trendelenburg function and an adjustable footboard. This combination allows for a steep slope to expand lower extremity veins for faster and easier recognition of structures. Representatives from MPI, along with the VasScan table, can be found at booth #216.
Those unable to attend ACP can visit the company’s website (www.medicalpositioning.com) which harnesses animation technology, enabling MPI to demonstrate the agility of its beds in an online environment, from the comfort of a client’s workspace. It eliminates the need to ship beds to a hospital for the medical professional to observe how it will improve imaging and sonographer health, because at the press of a button the online demonstration makes this clear. This website, which reflects the ingenuity of MPI’s engineering department, was launched in 2010.
Unlike most medical products companies, MPI has gained a share of the medical bed market by cutting out the middle man. Every MPI product is engineered and built inside the company’s headquarters in Kansas City. Similarly, every sale and customer service response effort originates from inside the building.
“We believe that direct communication with our customers is key,” said CEO Laura Brady. “When someone calls with a question about one of our beds, they speak directly with someone on our team. “We don’t believe in letting a third party sell our products or answer customer service calls. A lot can get lost in translation and we want to work hand-in-hand with the people who are going to use our beds every day. We want to understand their concerns and match them with a bed that meets their needs.”
