SteriDev in Lansing has launched the CleanCase sterile mobile devices cover, the first device-specific, fully FDA-compliant product on the market that allows surgeons to safely bring mobile devices into sterile surgical rooms. The cover offers full functionality of devices.

Surgeons bring mobile devices into the surgical room to capture media for medical records and to use mobile medical applications.

“The CleanCase is a first-of-its-kind product that will empower physicians to use the best and latest medical technology on their mobile devices, without ever compromising patient safety,” says Rob Zondervan, CEO of SteriDev.

“Health care mobile applications are developing at a remarkable rate, and in the hands of a great physician, they can make a real difference in the care of patients. Currently, mobile applications are improving the delivery of health care in non-sterile settings. The CleanCase mobile device covers expand their usage into sterile environments so surgical patients can also benefit.”

CleanCase passes a device through a sleeve that is removed once the device is in the case. The case is then closed it so it is ready to use. The case is made of rigid plastic and features a touchscreen face and unobstructed camera window, making it fully functional through the case and with gloved hands.

Zondervan, a medical student at East Lansing’s Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine, came up with the idea while assisting in an operation. He has more than 10 years of clinical and academic medical experience and serves as the Spartan Innovations senior fellow, providing medical advice to start-up companies.

The device is available for order here.
