Products currently under development:

 

Non Interchange Connectors

  • Prevent the inadvertent peripheral venous injection of agents intended for central venous, neuraxial or enteral administration.
  • Uncomplicated clinical use.
  • Integrated into or with standard locking luer ISO 594-1:1986 for emergency withdrawal.
  • Streamline profile for ease of use but also patient comfort.
  • Easily identified and prevention of fluid interchange.
  • Failsafe in use.
  • Non interchangeable with standard luer fittings for infusion of fluids.

Never Event List from the NHS England – 2013/2014 update

CVC Guidelines

The ISO (International Standards Organization) Committee – ISO TC210 JWG4, wish to establish a design or specification for non luer neuraxial connectors to reduce the risk of wrong route errors and maximise patient safety.

To this end Medical Device Creations is actively developing a number of methods to answer the problem – see NHS England list of “Never Events”.

Medical Device Creations are now developing solutions for,

#1 Epidural Lines,

#2 Arterial Fluid Line Bags,

#3 Potassium Solution supply control,

#4 CVC & PICC Lines with non interchangeable connectors – see CVC Guidelines

Optical Speculum

  • Used for an ophthalmic procedure in which therapeutic agents are injected into the vitreous cavity of the eye.
  • A single device which acts as a speculum and eyelash guard and also provides an injection site guide.
  • Replaces current Intravitreal injection packs.
  • This single device speeds up the procedure which make it more comfortable and less traumatic for the patient.
  • Potentially the device will have a sponge attached/incorporated which will be soaked with an anaesthetic/antibacterial solution.
  • Projected savings of approx £5 per patient with potential total UK sales alone of 300,000 per annum.
