FloShield, from Minimally Invasive Devices, Inc., is an all-in-one, comprehensive solution in maintaining laparoscopic visual clarity. FloShield facilitates a consistent, clear image during surgery while virtually eliminating the need to remove the scope from the patient’s body. The FloShield Plus system addresses a critical unsolved problem in laparoscopic visualization: debris and condensation settling on the end of the scope that obscures vision and requires frequent interruptions for scope removal and manual cleaning. The comprehensive FloShield system is built around two technologies.
- Vortex Barrier Technology, a sheath-enabled design that provides a protective CO2 barrier over the laparoscopic lens that shields it from condensation, debris and smoke.
- Flo-X in situ, a biocompatible, flushing surfactant that is utilized intraoperatively to clean the lens without removing it from the patient.
