Owners of the innovation:
Acknowledgment: Congratulations on being one of the pioneer innovators who have obtained the IFIA Innovation Standard certificate (IIS).
Following your inquiry for an IIS certification, the jury board evaluated your application according to the criteria. And after the assessment and examinations, your innovation was granted with IFIA Innovation Standard Grade C.
IFIA hopes that by having this certification, you will take an essential step in the commercialization of your innovation. Also, by entering international markets, you can contribute to the realization of the global slogan: Generating wealth through innovative knowledge.
The Summary of Innovation:
The reticulated speculum is an OBGYN examination tool used for vaginal examination. It has reticulated blades that decrease the pain of vaginal examinations and speculum insertion the speculum will be fixed during the examination, even in women with loose vaginal tissue. It helps with better and more reliable vaginal discharge sampling results in vaginitis discharges would come out of the holes placed on the blades so we can sample with a speculum, not from the lower part of the cervix. The blades separate into two parts the blade itself and the middle part. The middle parts are made of iron; the insertion of the ironic speculum is better than the plastic ones, and this has more benefits, such as:
1. It will be used after coming out of the autoclave so it’s warm and it will relax the vagina
2. Lubricant stays better on the iron, so when you rotate the speculum to insert it into the vagina, the lubricant gel won’t shed. The middle parts should be sterile in the autoclave after use for patients. it has silicon bands inside the blades, so if the sudden the blades were closed they won’t make harsh sounds and won’t bite the vaginal tissue to make the procedure less scary. It has a light source in the proximal part of the speculum, so it will give us a better view. it can be effective in the reparation of the median or mediolateral episiotomy in NVD and lacerations. This device has a bottom at the distal part of the holder, so you can fix the speculum by only pressing the bottom.
Why is this innovation eligible to receive the IIS certification?
This innovation helps women reduce their fear of examination. Also, it won’t make harsh sounds or bite the vaginal tissue. Moreover, obtaining IFIA Innovation Standard will help this innovation to get more recognition in more international markets all around the world. Exporting this innovation to more countries will result in more doctors utilizing this device and reducing the fear of women about vaginal tests.
