NOvate's first product offering, SafeSnip, is a patent-pending disposable and degradable plastic obstetric device that simultaneously cuts, clamps, and shields the umbilical cord from infection. SafeSnip's symmetric design and multiple safety features prevent misuse and shorten the delivery process by transforming umbilical cord severance into an intuitive one step procedure. SafeSnip will decrease healthcare costs and increase the standard of care for newborns by addressing infection-related mortality in developing countries while maintaining technologic relevance in developed nations. This allows SafeSnip to benefit from use globally in both developed and developing world markets.
