Reduce carbon emissions and save resources without compromising on safety and performance.
Reduce. Reuse. Remanufacture.
the time is now
We all have an obligation to reduce our impact on the environment to protect our planet for generations to come.
Remanufacturing extends the product lifecycle of single-use medical devices and enables a circular economy, saving valuable resources while being kinder to the environment.
For example, by remanufacturing a catherer we can reduce the carbon footprint by more than half, reducing costs and saving resources without compromising on safety or performance.
Independent research on sustainibility
“Combining Life Cycle Assessment and Circularity Assessment to Analyze Environmental Impacts of the Medical Remanufacturing of Electrophysiology Catheters” (January 21)
In a groundbreaking study, Fraunhofer UMSICHT compared the new production of a catheter with a catheter refurbished by Vanguard with regard to their impact on global warming and their abiotic resource consumption.
“Carbon footprint of atrial fibrillation catheter ablation” (August 22)
The environmental impact of AF catheter ablation activity represents an equivalent of 700 000 km of car ride every day. Electrophysiology catheters and patches are the main contributors of the carbon footprint. The focus must be on reducing, reusing, and recycling these items to limit the impact on the environment.
