MedPlast's Pessary Balloon Manufacture Showcases Multi-Function Technical Mastery
Date:1/9/2012

ELKHORN, Wis., Jan. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- MedPlast, Inc.'s ability to craft the pessary balloons that enhance quality of life for many women underscores the company's commitment to premium quality output and complete mastery of many separate - and complex - processes.

Today's pessaries are precision-manufactured medical devices that provide pelvic organ support and that are used to treat a variety of gynecologic conditions, including prolapse. In years past, such devices were made of latex, which is relatively easy to work with, but - from the medical standpoint - contains proteins which can cause an allergic reaction. 

As a result, medical product makers may now specify silicone, which offers clear-cut advantages for patients but represents a serious manufacturing challenge. "The silicone offers poor tear resistance compared to natural rubber," said Bernie Stritzke, Vice President and General Manager of MedPlast's facility here in Elkhorn. "The balloon section of the multi-piece product is thin, and has to be stretched and there are difficult de-molding transitions," he said, noting that the company made a special part to de-mold without over-extending the piece. "It's a process that requires great finesse."

It's also a process that requires complete mastery of each element of a complex, multi-stage process. "This is painstaking, time-consuming work that requires particular expertise in extruding, molding, assembling and more," Stritzke said. This Inflat-o-Ball™ pessary created by MedPlast for CooperSurgical, Inc. includes a molded part, a check ball and a glued-on silicone extrusion.

"The Inflat-o-Ball pessary is a unique device designed to manage complicated pelvic prolapse cases. Being able to provide this product without latex is an important advancement in patient care, as many patients using the product are exposed for extended periods of time, making those with latex allergies unable to receive this therapy.
