This portable sterilizer could make a big difference when it comes to improving medical care available in developing communities. The goal behind the Eniware Portable Sterilizer is "a world with universal access to infection free healthcare."
The power-free solution to sterilization could make surgery safer for millions of patients globally, specifically those in particularly remote areas without access to clean water or electricity. The lightweight invention is quick and safe to use, as it requires only a capsule of room-temperature nitrogen dioxide to efficiently sterilize surgical instruments. The 25 liter case has a carrying handle, making it very mobile and easy to move around.
Field clinical trials will use the device beginning this month in Africa.
