Award winning Hegenberger Speculum comes to the UK and Ireland

By Luke RobertsonDate: 03/12/20

One of the most ground breaking developments in postpartum procedures ensuring greater suturing success and limiting long lasting effects from genital trauma. This product has many benefits for both patient and clinician and although a simple concept brilliant in its performance and ease of use.

Where has it come from? The story is best told by the inventor herself – Malene Hegenberger, Certified Nurse Midwife and inventor:

“With a background as both a nurse and midwife, I have more than 20 years’ experience as a clinician in labor wards in the United States, Denmark and other countries. Through the years, I have seen various suturing methods, but common to all is that the procedure from diagnosis to suturing is often an unnecessarily protracted and painful experience for the patient.
Over my years as a clinician, I have repeatedly wondered if there was an instrument that can hold the vagina open throughout, as this would provide a better opportunity for diagnosing, reducing pain for the patient and significantly shortening the entire procedure.
In 2015, my curiosity finally drove me to develop an instrument that could do exactly that. After a few years developing the design and testing prototypes, the Hegenberger Speculum was finally ready for sale in 2019.”

The product has been won the danish design award 2020 and is set to win high recognition as the product gains traction. In the words of the Jury:

“The impact of the solution touches both the health and social dimensions for the mother, and enables the medical staff to do better work. Given how many operations are performed, this is an important solution that could have a high level of positive impact.”

Keep posted on our launch of this product in the UK – January 2021 and make sure you subscribe to receive your invitation to our launch event!
