UCC Licenses School of Engineering Spin-Out Skellig Sugical's Innovative Device

8 Feb 2017

Designed to manipulate organs that obscure and limit the ability to perform keyhole surgery, SecuRetract is UCC’s latest foray into medtech. Through a new licensing agreement, it’s now on the market.

Ireland’s knowledge transfer system is again proving its worth as UCC licenses a surgical medical device to Skellig Surgical. It will be the latter’s first commercial product.

Developed through the work of dozens of surgeons over four years of research, the prize-winning device uses clever engineering to improve the surgical process.

Inflated inside the 5mm surgical incision used in laparoscopic surgery, the device keeps the bowels from obstructing surgeons’ views.
