Charles Jones, MD (Sioux City, Iowa~retired) was a pioneering American eye surgeon who championed phaco and intraocular lenses long before they became popular. His son Jason Jones, MD has carried on in his footsteps as a leader in his own right.
According to Jason, his dad had developed a platform that was of a similar concept to hold the pedals and be able to move them around on a turntable. This led to a modernized version of the original concept but with modern materials and other engineering features including the casters to move the entire platform and not just rotation.
While the concept is simple, the execution of the design and production was not as easy as it might appear. However, after years of working with Doctor Jason Jones on his modernized Jones RoundAbout, we are pleased to say it is very good. One thing for sure is that the nursing staff loves it and would not be without it but surgeons do also. It can be such a nuisance not to be positioned just right and then have to wait for someone to come move the footpedals into proper position or attempt to do so with their own feet. Worse yet, at times surgeons end up operating in an uncomfortable position.
Neatly, this is all avoided with this new product.
“This new foot pedal holder is an ingenious device which allows easy movement of both foot pedals under the operating table either from patient to patient, or from one position to another (R/L side, superior). The OR staff love it and it saves their backs from having to bend over to move the pedals. It also minimizes head injuries from standing up under the scope after moving the pedals.”
