Abstract—Background: Vacuum extraction is a way to prevent unnecessary maternal deaths, by using a vacuum extractor to help deliver the baby in the second stage of labour. Vacuum extraction is still little-used in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) compared to high-income countries, due to the lack of sufficient devices on the market that...

While lives are saved through the use of medical devices; they have a significant negative impact on the environment. In particular single-use medical devices make up a large part of the healthcare sector’s negative environmental impact as they contribute significantly to generating more medical waste and greenhouse gas emissions. Approximately...

Background: Existing videolaryngoscopes do not meet the needs, budgets, and cleaning protocols of low- and middle-income countries. To solve these problems, a new videolaryngoscope, the Goodscope, has been developed which is less expensive, reusable and easy to clean. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of the Goodscope compared...

The goal of this project is to design and create a low cost total ossicular reconstruction prosthesis (TORP) for use in low-middle income countries (LMIC). These middle ear prostheses are available on the market but are unaffordable for the general populace in LIMCs. A mould is designed with which a titanium wire TORP could be created . A...

Medical device selection is currently based on criteria including clinical performance, usability, safety and procurement costs. Growing awareness of the negative contribution of the healthcare sector to the total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions demands environmental sustainability to be taken into account as well. Reusable and disposable...

<b>BACKGROUND - </b>The success of the mechanical thrombectomy treatment in acute ischemic stroke is highly dependent on mechanical clot behavior and characteristics like stiffness. This mechanical treatment is tested in clot analogs. Realistic clot analogs could potentially be made in a realistic formation environment. The effects of blood...

Since the transition period from tie-stall to free-stall, at the end of the previous century, lameness became more and more prominent. A preventive claw trimming technique was developed for lameness prevention. It is recommended to trim the claws twice a year but this does not always happen so often in practice. One of the things that preventive...

<b>Background</b>- A wide variation in composition is found within the thrombi retrieved from acute ischemic stroke patients. The composition of a thrombus and its mechanical properties have a significant influence on the procedural ease and success rate of mechanical retrieval procedures. If the composition and mechanical properties of a...

For healthcare, an industry that is currently responsible for up to 10% of the global carbon footprint, the transition to carbon neutrality and circularity will be an enormous challenge. As 20-30% of the total hospital waste originates from operating rooms, optimising recovery from these waste streams has the potential to make a significant...

Cleaning is an important factor in the reprocessing of hollow medical instruments. Inadequate cleaning disturbs the disinfection and sterilization process and increases the risk of cross-contamination. An automated washer-disinfector is often used for cleaning medical instruments, by using fluid flow. fluid flow induces shear stress at the wall...
