Ovalastic Device

    We designed and developed a functional prototype and proof-of-concept for a new automated version of the Ovalastic procedure by Urogyn.

    Ovalastic is a non-invasive method for sterilisation that does not require surgery. It uses a soft flexible implant to block the Fallopian tubes and prevent the egg cells from being fertilised without damaging the tissue. The current method is done manually by using a gun for dispensing the material via a catheter. See the video below for a complete explanation of the current procedure.

    There are currently many steps to the manual procedure and by automating each step, the process is simplified for the specialist – giving more control, requiring fewer hands, and most crucially, always ensuring the exact amount of material is dispensed at the right speed.
