In 2007, the World Health Organization and UNAIDS proved that circumcised men reduce their risk of HIV Infection by approximately 60% in high risk areas such as Sub-Saharan Africa.
The Circ MedTech team developed the patent pending PrePex device to achieve rapid scale-up of voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC) in resource limited settings, prevalent in Sub-Saharan Africa. PrePex is the first known device to facilitate non-surgical adult MC that can claim all of the following: No injected anesthesia. No blood. No sutures. No sterile settings.
The guiding principle of the company is to offer safe, simple, scalable and cost effective adult male circumcision programs that can be implemented by minimally skilled healthcare workers. Learn more about the device Features & Benefits.
The PrePex device is FDA cleared and certified CE Mark Class IIa and is manufactured using USP Class VI biocompatible elastomeric materials compliant to ISO_13485 Medical Devices (Quality Management systems) and FDA, 21 CFR177. 2600. Circ MedTech is ISO 13485 certified.
