A Ring for Rescue

 

Introducing the Ring Rescue™ Kit, a revolutionary healthcare device from Dartmouth, Nova Scotia! This innovative kit is set to transform the way stuck rings are removed in the healthcare system, mitigating the risk of patient injury and lost jewelry.

Equipped with a cutting-edge design, the Ring Rescue™ Kit features an innovative cutter and Compression Device™, allowing for the safe removal of rings. This can be achieved by reducing swelling on the affected finger or by carefully cutting off the trapped ring with minimal damage to the jewelry.

The Cobequid Foundation is currently undertaking a fundraising initiative to acquire this groundbreaking device for the Health Centre. Your support will play a vital role in revolutionizing the process of removing stuck rings, ensuring both patient safety and the preservation of valuable jewelry.  

Changing Cancer Screening at Cobequid

The GI Genius™ intelligent endoscopy module offers a solution — powered by artificial intelligence — to address the challenges of detecting colorectal cancer, early. By harnessing deep learning algorithms and real-time data, we can empower physicians to detect and treat colorectal polyps through enhanced visualization. This innovative equipment will transform cancer screening at Cobequid.
