Abcease is a single use medical device that penetrates soft tissue by converting rotational force into axial movement. Abcease provides a way to access deep skin abscesses, drain them, and manage the healing process. Further, Abcease stands to remove the need for in-theatre treatment, and the risks associated with general anaesthesia and a hospital stay. Abcease will initially be used by General Surgeons, ED Physicians and Radiologists, but has the potential to be utilised in primary care settings by General Practitioners.
