Medsalv exists to make healthcare sustainable
Medsalv was born out of a desire to eliminate the growing environmental and financial waste in New Zealand's Healthcare Sector.

 

Simply put, single-use device reprocessing is the practice of taking a medical device that if treated properly, is clinically safe and suitable for reuse, despite it being labeled ‘single use’.

These processes utilise a variety of proprietary equipment not found in hospital Sterile Service Departments, and therefore cannot be undertaken by hospitals themselves. As a result, every day, thousands of supposedly ‘single-use’ medical devices are dispensed to landfill when they could be safely and economically reprocessed for reuse.

 

In dollar terms, we think this equates to more than $100 million dollars per year of unnecessary public healthcare expenditure, and we're setting out to change that.
