Back to Medical Equipment and Information

Innovation By Design...

The Unbilicutter is a unique device used in obstetrics during the delivery of a baby. the easy-to-use device not only clamps and cuts the umbilical cord, it also contains the splash of fluids when the cord is severed.

Cuts
A cutting blade is positioned between two cord clamps and severs the umbilical cord when pushed forward. It is contained in its own "sharps" housing after the cut is made.

Clamps
Dual cord clamps secure umbilical cord in two areas.

Contains
The outermost housing contains the splash from fluids in the umbilical cord when the cut is made, offering protecting for health care workers.

The Umbilicutter's one hand operation permits the physician's other hand to hold the newborn during cord clamping.

The Unbilicutter allows the baby's father to cut the cord if he so desires.

The physician can position the device, engage the clamps, the allow the father to push the blade forward, in a safe, controlled motion.
