Chris Selwa, Managing Director of MediGroup EBI said:

"We're delighted to win the Kerrin Rennie award for the second year running. Winning this prestigious award against stiff competition reflects medigroup EBI's and the device industry's ongoing commitment to introducing products that significantly improve patient outcomes.

“The 3D Rib Clip, is a minimally invasive implant that is unique. Flexible to encourage ribs to remodel (heal long term) correctly, and rigid to ensure optimal short term outcomes such as re-approximation and pain.

“Using the 3D Rib Clip has been shown to reduce hospital and ICU stay, and is associated with reduced complications"
