BlueLavage is a completely new resource-efficient suction and rinsing system for tissue cleaning during surgical procedures. The system rinses bone and tissue particles, bacteria and foreign material from the wound and continuously aspirates them.
The innovative separation into a single-use handpiece and an up to 150x reusable DriveUnit with patented locking mechanism leads to an enormous reduction of plastic (-49%) and electronic waste (-99%) compared to conventional solutions.
The packaging concept with the ergonomic insertion funnel allows sterile insertion of the DriveUnit prior to surgery.
