Our Resposable® technology is a hybrid solution designed to reduce the carbon footprint and plastic waste generated from Minimally Invasive Surgery.
Designed and manufactured with precision from our headquarters in the UK, sustainable surgery doesn’t have to be a compromise in performance for the Surgeon.
The operating theatre has been identified as an energy intensive area of a hospital, in part due to its consumption of single-use items, often constructed from plastic, on a mass scale, subsequently creating an environmental footprint which could be readily avoided.
The environmental value of our Resposable® technology in a typical Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy, can reduce the carbon footprint by up to 76%¹, whilst also reducing plastic waste by up to 85%¹.
The challenge facing healthcare is how to reduce the environmental footprint, without sacrificing the convenience of single use devices and increasing costs.
Adopting Resposable® devices could save you up to 53%¹ per Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy compared with the equivalent single use instruments.
With approximately 73,000¹ Laparoscopic Cholecystectomies conducted in NHS England each year, this would equate to a saving of up to £11 million¹ per annum.
