Ventouse delivery system
Medela offers classic suction cups, proven effective for decades, as well as specially designed vacuum extractors to cater for all possible fetal positions and physicians’ requirements at a ventouse delivery.
The Malmström Cups’ design allows for a good seal to help minimise pop-offs. This type of VAD suction cup is used when the fetus is in the occipito-anterior position. Made of autoclavable stainless steel, the Malmström Cup comes in diameters of 40, 50 and 60mm.
The Bird Cup is the most widely sold type of suction cup. It is based on the design of the Malmström Cup, with separate suction and traction ports. Made of autoclavable stainless steel, the Bird Cup comes in diameters of 40, 50 and 60mm.
Bird Posterior Cup
Especially designed for the occipito-posterior fetal position, the vacuum port is positioned on the side of this suction cup. This, together with its low profile, ensures easier insertion. Autoclavable stainless steel, the Bird Posterior Cup comes in diameters of 50mm.
