Stryker, Homer H.(strīk′ĕr)
U.S. orthopedic surgeon, 1894–1980.
A device that supports two rectangular pieces of lightweight but strong material so that one side is on the anterior surface of the patient and the other is on the posterior surface. The patient is sandwiched firmly between the pieces of material. The device may be rotated around the patient's long axis. This permits turning the patient without his or her assistance. After a turn is completed, the uppermost portion of the frame can be moved away from the patient.illustration
An electric-powered oscillating saw that cuts through bone or dense tissue with minimal damage to the underlying soft tissues.
