Suction Cervical Stabilizer
Carevix, a new generation of cervical tenaculum, delivers cervical engagement without the need to perforate the tissue.
The device leverages suction technology to gently stabilize the cervix.
A semi-circular, anatomical pad is applied onto the delicate tissue during gynecological procedures, reducing trauma associated with pain and bleeding.
Early results for our First in Women Phase-I trial are promising. Women undergoing IUD procedures experienced low or no pain and no bleeding.
The First in Women Phase-II, a comparative randomized trial, is currently underway in Switzerland, at the Lausanne and Geneva University Hospitals (CHUV and HUG). The results from this trial are expected in August 2021.
Both the CHUV and HUG are leading hospitals in Switzerland ranking among the top 10 medical institutions in Europe (1). According to Newsweek World’s Best Hospital 2020, the CHUV is among the top 15 best hospitals in the world. (2)

95% of practitioners are dissatisfied with the use of the cervical tenaculum *
Up to 7cm average pain score on a Visual Analogue Scale 0-10 cm is experienced by women due to the cervical tenaculum *
Fear of pain during intrauterine device (IUD) insertion is a barrier to the use of IUDs as a contraceptive method. *
Suction cervical stabilizer and female patients

But what triggers the pain?
But what triggers the pain?
One of the steps of this short office procedure requires that your cervix is stabilized. Today, gynecologist will use a device called the Tenaculum. It resembles a pair of scissors with two sharp hooks at the end. In order to work the clinician will pierce your cervix with this instrument.
The tenaculum was invented over a century ago and remains largely unchanged.
Collaboration with Strategic Partners
Are you a manufacturer of Intrauterine devices or distributor of women’s health innovations?
Are you a hospital focused on bringing innovative devices to your patients or clinician looking for women-centric solutions to your practice?
We are eager to find the right strategic partners that will enable the access and adoption of Carevix by hospitals, clinicians that will benefit the most from this cost-effective solution.
Carevix is designed to be use as an alternative to the Tenaculum. Therefore, its applications are various.
In Contraception, Carevix might help deepen the adoption of Intrauterine Devices by lowering barriers of adoption associated with fear of procedure pain
In Fertility, Carevix might decrease uterus contraction during embryo transfers increasing the chances of procedure success.
