CauteryGuard
Georgia Tech

Electrocautery devices are used to remove tissue and to stop bleeding; however, they carry a high risk of causing cautery burns to both the patient and the surgeon while also serving as the initiator in over 450 surgical fires in operating rooms yearly. These injuries and fires can not only be costly for hospitals but also for the persons they inflict. The CauteryGuard incorporates an automatic retractability feature that prevents any unintended contact from occurring with the patient, the surgeon, or flammable material in the operating room.
