Isala Innovation Award

Medtronic logoWe are very proud to announce that an initiative we started with Medtronic to reduce waste production resulted in Medtronic receiving the Isala Innovation Award.

Extracorporeal circulation for cardiac surgery uses a great amount of disposable products, usually tailored into a so-called custompacks. The disposable product are carefully packaged in sterile wrappings and bags and placed in large plastic trays for protection during transport. These trays serve no purpose after use of the disposables inside and are discarded. This results in a large volume of packaging waste. After use the disposables pile up in a large volume of medical waste which are transported in special purpose yellow-bin containers to a waste processing facility.

The Medtronic team receiving the awardMedtronic, working together with us, managed to produce and package our sterile custompacks in such a way that they will fit into yellow-bin containers. This provides excellent protection during transport and a means of waste disposal afterwards. This method of operation reduces the total volume of waste produced by the hospital which is beneficiary for the environment and reduces costs for all parties involved.
