The Allis Medical Instruments Forceps, a pair of forceps used to treat burns, has received a boost to $7,500 by the Canadian government.
The department of national defence has also announced that it has approved a $1.4 million contract for a new medical optical instrument technician to work in the Allis hospital.
The contract with the manufacturer of the forceps was awarded last month, with the department of health confirming the approval on Wednesday.
“We are excited to have received this award, which will allow us to expand our Forceps capability,” said Brigadier-General David Smith, deputy chief of staff of the defence staff, in a statement.
The Allis Forceps are used by the medical team at the Alles Medical Instrument Repair Centre.
The forceps is designed to be inserted into the burn victim’s skin.
It uses two sets of forcep blades to cut through the skin to remove the fluid inside the wound.
It has a range of different strengths and types, but most are used to remove fat and fluid from the wound, as well as help to reduce pressure.
It can be used for a wide range of injuries including burns, as long as it is properly applied and maintained, Smith said.
Allis was the first Canadian hospital to receive an order for a forceps and it has now received approval from the department to use the forcep in an additional hospital.
It was also one of the first medical facilities to get an order from the government for an additional forceps for burn patients, according to Health Canada.
Allis had previously been a military medical base and is one of a number of military hospitals in the province that have received an order.
The contract was awarded to the company in June and has been subject to a review process.
Canada is currently in the process of replacing all its hospital beds, which are currently filled with the remains of the dead.
As of October 1, about 12,000 soldiers and civilians have died while serving in the Canadian Armed Forces.
