The MediShield Isolator System (MSIS)
The MediShield Isolator System (MSIS) shields the entire instrument from the operating room, minimizes gas leakage, paternal exposure and infection risks. Especially in case of contamination risks, the MSIS trocar system creates an extra barrier between patent and surrounding medical staff and equipment. Deu to the unique locking system,multiple instruments can be locked on (and unocked from) the trocar without any risk on exposure of the shielded instruments.This novel new system is currently being developed in cooperation with the Delft University of Technology, Erasmus Medical center and the medical university of Leiden (LUMC).
in case of contagious diseases, the MSIS trocar protects the surgeon, staff and operation room against tissue, fluid or particles coming from the patient. In environments with a high incidence of HIV or hepatitis this still is an important topic.
