Medical equipment is a hot topic for UK consumers this week as they look to invest in the latest medical equipment.
Medical spiral tubes are tubes that are made from a spiral structure of plastic.
They are designed to allow a surgeon to get a better fit on an amputated limb.
If you have a medical problem, the tube can also be used to create an oxygen mask.
In the UK, spiral tubing is made from plastic and is used to treat a wide range of medical conditions.
The UK’s spiral tubing industry is worth around £10 billion, with the most recent figures from the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) suggesting that this figure is rising rapidly.
With spiral tubes becoming increasingly popular, a number of UK manufacturers are using the tube to produce their own medical equipment, according to the UK’s Telegraph.
Dr Peter Jardine, director of the University of London’s Centre for Medicinal Chemistry and Biomaterials, told the newspaper that spiral tubing could help improve surgery outcomes.
“The problem is that you have to take an amputation out of the equation,” he said.
However, Dr Jardines work with spiral tubing has been controversial and he says there is an inherent danger with the tube in that it can cause damage to the skin of the patient.
He said that while there are potential problems with using spiral tubing, it has been proven to be safe in the past.
SurgeryTube.co.uk, a site that aims to educate consumers on the best medical equipment available, was founded in 2015 and now has around 1,000 members.
One of its first members was Sarah, a mother of two, who bought spiral tubes in 2014.
She says she was “blown away” by the tube when she saw how good it was.
“It’s like you’re able to really feel how good your limb is and how much you’re taking in,” she told the Telegraph.
“I felt I had a lot more control and was able to take it off more easily than I’d ever felt before.”
The site also offers free trials to members.
Sarah said that the tube is a “lifetime friend” and is something that she “would never have bought if I hadn’t had the support of my family”.
“It makes me feel like a real person.
I’m a mother now and my daughter can now do all sorts of things that she would never have been able to do before.”
Sarah told the paper that she bought the tubes from a local shop because they were “cheap” and “easy to get”.
“It is such a lovely tube and you can’t go wrong with it,” she said.
