Innovative Operating Microscope Drapes for Brain Surgery

Innovative Operating Microscope Drapes for Brain Surgery

Think Together, Use Together, Develop Together: Innovative Operating Microscope Drapes for Brain Surgery for Better Access to Medical Care of All Thais Remark: The microscope drape is patent pending. If your business is looking for a “partnership” on design and material selection for product development to better meet your clients’ needs, please consult Design Catalyst by SCG Chemicals, Tel. +66 2586 2317 or reach us at our Facebook page:https://www.facebook.com/DesignCatalyst After brainstorming sessions between the medical team and Design Catalyst by SCG Chemicals, it was concluded that the first innovation to be developed was “microsurgical operating microscope drapes,” which are put on operating microscopes so that surgeons can touch them without contact with germs. There were several reasons for the decision. The operating microscope drapes need to be sterile because they are used in near contact with organs. Because they can cause harm to patients if they are contaminated, these drapes should be disposed of after one use. Although they are sometimes sterilized and then reused, their safety cannot be guaranteed as there may be tears. In addition to cleanliness, each microscope model requires its own drapes, resulting in a monopoly. Also, because of their high prices, these drapes drive up operation costs. “This device consists of two main components, the lens cover and the drape. The lens cover has been designed to be flexible, durable, and bright in color, while the drape is a large thin transparent plastic bag about 2-3 meters in length. Also, the bag should produce no static cling when opened and should hang down without too much weight pulling it down. In addition, the material must be sterilizable with gamma rays and retain its characteristics when exposed to them. For this bag, we have chosen a material that is produced domestically to ensure proper production and cost management.” Read the full article fromAll Around Plastics Magazine issue 2/2017 | IBuilding Success Together or download All Around Plastics application via - App Store (iOS):https://goo.gl/PdD4tk- Play Store (Android):https://goo.gl/yt7Vza

Sharps Disposal Bin - Thai Plastics Innovation for Medical Safety Needs

Date: 5 Sep 2017

Introducing the new design of ‘Sharps Disposal Bin,’ solution to improve safeness to nurses and medical assistances. "The challenge of designing this sharps disposal bin was striking the balance between safety and convenience, two main user needs that normally stand in contrast to each other. However, our team was determined because we would like to improve the lives of nurses who use sharps disposal bins and enhance their safety by eliminating their risk of coming into contact with contaminated products." To read full articles clickAll Around Plastics Magazine issue 2/2017 | Cover Story Advantages Of the Innovative Sharps Disposal Bin 1. Use And Storage Safety - The bin allows for a one-hand operation technique when discarding needles or syringes. - The lid requires no touching as it will swing open automatically when an object drops on it and swing close by itself. - The lid can be locked after use. 2. Convenience: The bin can be assembled easily and comes equipped with handles for portability. It also requires small storage space and can be transported conveniently. 3. Eco-Friendliness - A special polypropylene for thin-wall injection molding has been selected. Because the same strength can be achieved with less plastic, the bin is lighter by 8%. - The rectangular shape increases the capacity for sharps by 42 %. - Because less plastic is used, the bin requires less fuel upon disposal and produces 32% less carbon dioxide.
