We worked with Wessex Medical to develop a new ventouse device. The product needed to be easy to use, cheap to make, reliable and safe. The design incorporates a unique soft cup which can be inserted easily and conforms to a range of head sizes. It also features an innovative method of evaluating air to apply vacuum without requiring an external pump. Having completed the design and transfer to manufacture, we also assisted with the successful CE-marking of the Wessex Medical Ventouse device.
