Prevent accidental cuts, burns and fires in ORs

A newly designed protective sleeve could nearly eliminate accidental cuts, burns and fires in operating rooms.
Current Electric cauteries are invaluable surgical tools, used daily to cut through soft tissue and stop bleeding. But they also carry with them the potential for accidental harm.
Developed by Jason Johanning, M.D., the Safety Electric Cautery features an easily extendable protective sleeve. The sleeve not only covers the hot cautery tip between uses, but the device also automatically turns off when the sleeve is fully extended.
