Pioneering laparoscopic “flex technology” receives worldwide acclaim

10 September, 2009  

A world leading laparoscopic device, which uses pioneering flex technology to offer surgeons better rigidity during delicate surgical procedures, has been described as an “innovative cost effective solution” globally.

LogiFlex – a flexible laparoscopic device – was unveiled at the World congress of the International Federation for the Surgery of Obesity and Metabolic Disorders (IFSO) last month by British based Surgical Innovations.

It delivers the cost effectiveness of a reusable instrument with the optimum performance of a disposable.

Its sterile insert provides a solution to gastric banding, with the flexible tip featuring a “cut down” profile allowing for easy insertion of the instrument through the retro gastric tunnel. It also incorporates a unique slot design which provides a positive grip on the suture allowing the band to be pulled into position with the minimum of inconvenience.  

Another unique feature of LogiFlex is the availability of individual patented tip options; providing a bespoke solution to each and every manufacturer of gastric bands.

Graham Bowland, Managing Director of Surgical Innovations said: “We are passionate about our products and have spent a long time liaising with, laparoscopic surgeons.”

“In this current financial climate surgeons are looking for products which have enhanced performance capabilities but are cost effective and Surgical Innovations fit this market perfectly.

“The IFSO World Congress was the perfect platform for us to launch the Logi™Flex and meet laparoscopic surgeons from around the world. We are delighted with the feedback we received and are looking forward to supplying hospitals around the world with our new device.”
