Domain Surgical’s FMwand Named As Finalist in 2012 Medical Design Excellence Awards

Domain Surgical, Inc. announced today that its FMwand™ Ferromagnetic Surgical System has been selected as a finalist in the 2012 Medical Design Excellence Awards (MDEA) competition.

April 2, 2012 - PRLog -- Domain Surgical, Inc., a medical device company developing advanced thermal surgical technology for soft tissue cutting and coagulation, announced today that its FMwand™ Ferromagnetic Surgical System has been selected as a finalist in the 2012 Medical Design Excellence Awards (MDEA) competition.

The FMwand is a new surgical system based upon patent-pending ferromagnetic surgical technology, whereby a surgical implement is rapidly heated to consistently deliver pure thermal energy to cut and coagulate soft tissue. As the heated implement contacts tissue, it imparts a thermal effect on the surface that has a very low depth of penetration compared to most other energy-based surgical devices. This results in more precise cutting and coagulation, with little risk of unintentional injury to adjacent or deep tissue.

The MDEA is the medical device industry's premier design awards competition and is the only awards program that exclusively recognizes contributions and advances in the design of medical products. Entries are evaluated on the basis of their design and engineering features, including innovative use of materials, user-related functions that improve healthcare delivery and change traditional medical attitudes or practices, features that provide enhanced benefits to the patient, and the ability of the product development team to overcome design and engineering challenges so that the product meets its clinical objectives.

A comprehensive review of the entries was performed by an impartial, multidisciplinary panel of third-party jurors with expertise in biomedical engineering, human factors, industrial design, medicine, and diagnostics.

"We are honored to be recognized by the MDEA judges," said David McNally, President and CEO of Domain Surgical. "This recognition, along with the ongoing successes of the FMwand in human surgeries, continues to validate the exceptional work performed by our design and engineering team."
