HUMIPAK is a moisture retention pouch for post-operative instrument handling, designed to inhibit hydrophobic proteins adhering to surgical instruments by creating a moist environment. The idea of HUMIPAK originated from discussions with CSSD technicians experiencing difficulties in cleaning of post operative instruments. The Westfield Medical team brought the challenges the technicians faced back to the brainstorm table and our team of engineers got to work. After several trials HUMIPAK was developed.
HUMIPAK is one of the medical device industry’s most innovative products developed in the last 10 years. HUMIPAK aims to reduce Health Care Associated Infections (HCAI’s) by keeping instruments in moist conditions that will keep soil and dirt in a soft state, facilitating much easier, faster cleaning and decontamination processes without use of pre-treatment chemicals.
Humipak is designed to create a containment for soiled and biohazardous instruments facilitating safe transportation from Operating Room (OR) to Central Sterile Services Department (CSSD) hence improving Health & Safety of healthcare personnel.
