Discipline: Product

Over 12% of all births in the developed world require assistance from clinicians, a figure far higher in developing countries. The obstetric forceps, a key tool for clinicians, has remained largely unchanged since the 16th century. Developed by practicing clinicians, Safeceps™ revolutionizes obstetric care with greatly improved functionality, ease of use and ergonomics. The product remains familiar to users whilst transforming a subjective operation through intelligence of real time feedback of traction and compressive forces placed on the child during birth, greatly improving safety and reassurance to the doctor, mother and child.
