Medovate to demonstrate the future of anaesthesia innovation at Future Surgery 2021

1st November, 2021

We are delighted to announce that Medovate will be demonstrating our revolutionary device for regional anaesthesia, SAFIRA® (SAFer Injection for Regional Anaesthesia), at Future Surgery Show 2021.

Taking place at ExCel London on November 9 and 10, the show aims to promote networking, develop a stronger voice and meet the training needs of all surgical professionals and their multidisciplinary teams in perioperative care.

We are proud to be joining the Association for British HealthTech Industries (ABHI)’s ‘Surgical Simulation Theatre of The Future’ at this year’s event, which will replicate a fully working operating theatre, giving world-class surgeons a platform to demonstrate the latest pioneering surgical techniques.

As part of our session, Dr Ben Fox, a Consultant Anaesthetist at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, King's Lynn, will be demonstrating and sharing his experiences of introducing our new SAFIRA® technology into clinical practice, where he will be joined by Medovate’s Marketing Manager, Tracy Eke.

Tracy Eke comments: “We are delighted to be joining the ABHI Pavilion at this year’s Future Surgery Show, where we will be demonstrating our innovative device for regional anaesthesia. The technology has been developed by working with clinical innovators within the NHS and is a fantastic illustration of how the NHS can be a true driver for innovation. We are excited to be offering the world-class audiences at Future Surgery a chance to see our game-changing device in action.”

SAFIRA® is an innovative technology which is revolutionising the regional anaesthesia process. The new technology transforms regional anaesthesia into a single operator procedure, giving anaesthetists full control of injection, as well as enhancing confidence through a built-in safety mechanism to automatically prevent injection above 20psi to reduce the risk of nerve injury.

Already in use by clinicians across the world, feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, including reports of how the device facilitates hydro-dissection and reduces the amount of local anaesthetic required for a successful block.

SAFIRA® recently won the HSJ Patient Safety Innovation of the Year 2021.

The ABHI Surgical Simulation Theatre of the Future celebrates collaborations between healthcare providers, clinicians and healthcare technology companies, allowing visitors to watch Britain’s best surgeons in action.

Paul Benton, Managing Director, International, ABHI, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Future of Surgery 2021. The event is dedicated to all that is new in surgery and provides a truly unique platform for experts and innovators in surgery to come together. We are excited to be hosting a dedicated ABHI Pavilion for the first time and look forward to being joined by Medovate and give attendees a chance to see their ground-breaking technology in action.”

Medovate’s session ‘Mitigating for nerve injury during Regional Anaesthesia: introducing SAFIRA®’ with Tracy Eke and Dr Ben Fox will take place 9 November, 11:25 – 11:45. Make sure to join the session in the Surgical Simulation Theatre to see for yourself how our new technology transforms Regional Anaesthesia into a single operator procedure.

Our team will also be showcasing on the exhibitor floor, so if you're attending this year's event, please make sure to drop by our stand in the ABHI pavilion where we’ll be at hand to discuss any questions regarding the future of surgery with SAFIRA®. We look forward to seeing you there!

Future Surgery Show will take place at ExCel London from 9-10 November 2021. All live simulation sessions throughout the two-day event will be livestreamed through the virtual UK Healthcare Pavilion.
