Ten years of intricate product development and we are delighted to announce that the innovative Sutrue automated handheld suturing device now successfully produces automated sutures. The handheld device (and the robotic/endoscopic version) have been patented across the relevant territories. The device is set to revolutionise medical suturing as we know it, from a manual process to a simpler automated process.
The benefits of the Sutrue device over traditional suturing by hand include:
– Safer, quicker and more accurate than suturing by hand
– Accessible for use by inexperienced practitioners and laypeople
– Reduces needle stick injuries and therefore cases of HIV and Hepatitis B within healthcare practitioners
Potential applications for the handheld device include:
– Field hospitals
– Extreme environments (Space)
– Textiles industry
Here’s Professor Pepper and Mr Richard Trimlett comparing using the Sutrue handheld device to traditional suturing by hand.
