The Mobius Wound Protectors provide 360° circumferential retraction while lining the incision site to help protect wound edges from contamination. The malleable outer ring molds to the patient's abdomen to provide secure, low-profile exposure during a variety of OB/GYN and laparotomy procedures, especially Cesarean Sections.
OR/Mobius provides maximum exposure and wound protection while keeping minimal incisions in mind. Used in a variety of general, OB/GYN, Bariatric and Colorectal surgical applications, OR/Mobius lines the incision to help protect wound edges from contamination. Though there are many clinical uses for OR/Mobius, most recently it has been adopted as an alternative to power morcellation in abdominal hysterectomy and myomectomy procedures.
The OB/Mobius C-section Retractor provides 360° circumferential retraction while the malleable outer ring molds to the patient’s abdomen providing secure, low-profile exposure. Used frequently in the obese patient population due to its sturdy design, OB/Mobius stays in place throughout the procedure and is available in two size options. If preferred, the retractor design also allows for in situ suturing of uterus, in order to potentially reduce postoperative pain and achieve faster recovery times. All Mobius retractors are latex-free.
The Mobius® Elastic Retractor provides 360° of circumferential retraction while lining the wound to protect against contamination. The Mobius Elastic Retractor is comprised of three components:
- an open-ended, flexible yet non-compliant (will not stretch) polyurethane sleeve
- an internal, flexible O-Ring (blue)
- a Quad-Ring (yellow)
The O-Ring and Quad Ring components are made entirely of Ethyl-Vinyl-Acetate (EVA). The polyurethane sleeve is the single component contacting the patient.
See the diagram below:
The yellow Quad-Ring is injection-molded from Ethyl-Vinyl-Acetate (EVA) into the form known as the “Mobius” configuration. This configuration creates a torsional force that both assists the physician in the operation of the device and helps to maintain desired wound dilation once installed
