The tray system is designed to fully integrate into existing workflows in the SPD and OR. At 6-7 pounds fully loaded for each module, its weight will come as a major relief for SPD staff, who are used to much larger and heavier trays, many of which exceed guidelines established by the Association of periOperative Registered Nurses.
