Minimally Invasive Devices, Inc. Key Developments
Minimally Invasive Devices Inc. Launches FloShield(TM) Air
Sep 18 14
Minimally Invasive Devices Inc. announced the launch of FloShield(TM) Air, a laparoscope visualization system. FloShield Air is a simple to use device that dramatically reduces the need to clean the optics and can reduce supply costs compared to almost all other solutions. FloShield Air utilizes carbon dioxide to create a clear barrier of moving gas at the distal end of the laparoscope. This vortex actively protects the lens from getting dirty while providing instant and continuous defogging throughout the surgery. FloShield products are the first laparoscopic assistance devices to offer "active lens protection" to maintain a clear surgical view for surgical teams. FloShield replaces all other cleaning and/or defogging products and provides consistent visual clarity without the need to continually remove the scope for cleaning or to heat the scope prior to insertion.
