The unique TRACOE® twist swivelling neckplate

The most outstanding feature of TRACOE® twist and twist plus is the anatomically shaped neck flange that moves around two axes:

vertically (a) and horizontally (b).
The neck strap can be easily attached while the tube is in situ (c).

Thin walls = Maximum Airflow

The TRACOE® twist is more flexible compared with other styles of plastic tubes – this material is light and flexible and with body temperature becomes even more supple – contributing to outstanding comfort for the patient.

The wall thickness of the tube is much thinner than a standard plastic tube. This allows a greater volume of inspired air to enter the tube. Therefore, the clinician can choose a larger diameter of tube for the patients trachea.

Positive locking of the inner cannula is achieved by the TRACOE® twist and twist plus inner cannula in the outer tube housing. The arrow on the 15mm connector indicates correct positioning so confidence is provided that the inner cannula is securely in place – particularly important when using with ventilators.

High Acceptance

TRACOE® twist and twist plus tracheostomy tubes are suitable throughout the ‘life’ of the tracheostomy – from initial theatre use – to long term use in the community – as they feature weaning caps, which fit over the outer housing; to speaking valves, which of course allows communication to take place – a vital motivation for all tracheostomised patients.
