Component resourcefulness is integral to device reprocessing; however, in certain instances we must replace components to ensure safety and effectiveness. When replacing components, sourcing environmentally friendly replacements is a top priority.
- The MyoSure shroud* is replaced with a bio-based plastic that is manufactured using sustainably sourced trees. Not only does this allow for reduced reliance on petroleum-based plastic, but for every two trees that are removed for the bio-plastic, three are planted, thus safeguarding this renewable resource for future generations.
- Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) often shows up as a chemical of concern for our healthcare partners. To better align with their chemical reduction goals, we’ve sourced PVC-free tubing.
*Replaced with bio-based plastics substitute on the MyoSure, REACH, XL and XL for fluent models
