In response to medical evidence indicating that shaving a surgical incision site increases the risk of postoperative infection, Medline Industries has developed the single-use disposable MediClip Sterile O.R. Clipper to assist hospitals in becoming 100 percent razor free.

Medline has developed a close-shave foil head attachment for clinicians (such as neurosurgeons) who still want a completely smooth surface not achievable with a regular clipper blade. Similar to a consumer face shaver blade, the foil used in conjunction with either MediClip's regular universal blade or coarse hair blade provides a smooth shave without the risk of nicking that a razor might cause.
