One of the most ground breaking developments in postpartum procedures ensuring greater suturing success and limiting long lasting effects from genital trauma. This product has many benefits for both patient and clinician and although a simple concept brilliant in its performance and ease of use.

Where has it come from? The story is best told by the inventor herself – Malene Hegenberger, Certified Nurse Midwife and inventor:

“With a background as both a nurse and midwife, I have more than 20 years’ experience as a clinician in labor wards in the United States, Denmark and other countries. Through the years, I have seen various suturing methods, but common to all is that the procedure from diagnosis to suturing is often an unnecessarily protracted and painful experience for the patient.
Over my years as a clinician, I have repeatedly wondered if there was an instrument that can hold the vagina open throughout, as this would provide a better opportunity for diagnosing, reducing pain for the patient and significantly shortening the entire procedure.
In 2015, my curiosity finally drove me to develop an instrument that could do exactly that. After a few years developing the design and testing prototypes, the Hegenberger Speculum was finally ready for sale in 2019.”

The product has been won the danish design award 2020 and is set to win high recognition as the product gains traction. In the words of the Jury:

“The impact of the solution touches both the health and social dimensions for the mother, and enables the medical staff to do better work. Given how many operations are performed, this is an important solution that could have a high level of positive impact.”

    Anette Civilis who is an surgery nurse in Helsingborg got a brilliant idea to develop a tool to facilitate white balancing of surgeon cameras during surgery.

    She contacted Innovation Skåne, who together with Wing Plast developed a white balance cup.

    If you have a white balance cup, you can easily and quickly make a new white balance.

    In endoscopic operations, a camera is used which connects to an optic and a light guide. These parts are unique, and in order to get a good image quality, one must white balance as part of the process for booting.

    When you white balance you usually use a compress. It is not the easiest thing to get a smooth and white surface with a compress. There are often small shadows, and it is difficult to protect the optics from the surrounding light.

    So for that reason, Anette though it would be great if you could get a sterile white balancing cup. Preferably a disposable, which you can use during surgery and in a quick and easy way white balance. Sometimes you also need to rebalance during the operation. It is irritating if it takes too long, the operators are waiting to get the optics back and get a good picture.

    If you have a white balancing cup, you can easily and quickly make a white balance.

    With this in mind, Anette contacted Innovation Skåne, who together with her and Wing Plast have developed a disposable product that you can use when white balancing in endoscopic operations.

    This is a white balance cup, it is disposable, easy to use and sterile of course:
