We’re delighted to announce that another of our clinical studies has been published in the latest issue of the MIDIRS Midwifery Digest (Sept 2022).

In the September issue of the Midwives Information & Resource Service (MIDIRS) quarterly journal Darya Kozlyk and Malene Hegenberger analyzed qualified midwives’ perceptions of our Hegenberger Retractor for perineal repair following online clinical training.

We were so pleased with the study’s positive results! Some of the findings included:

  • 100% of clinicians reported the Hegenberger Retractor was a valuable teaching/training aide.
  • 100% of clinicians found the Hegenberger Retractor helped them carry out their suturing using the evidence based techique.
  • 87% of clinicians reported improved ergonomics and reduced muscular-skeletal strain using the Hegenberger Retractor, 13% were uncertain.
  • 100% of clinicians found using the Hegenberger Retractor improved visualization of the trauma being repaired.
