The Kiwi Complete Vacuum Delivery System

  • PalmPump™ Technology puts complete control in the hands of a single operator
  • Traction Force Indicator measures the force exerted during traction
  • Flexible Stem enables the cup to be placed over the flexion point no matter the position of the fetal head
  • Disposable for convenience and safety
  • Low Cup Profile for ease of insertion
  • Kiwi is DEHP Free

The OmniCup is the most versatile of the Kiwi vacuums. Its flexible-stem and low profile cup enable placement over the flexion point of the baby’s head no matter the fetal head position. This is vital in order to realign the head so that the smallest diameters of the fetal head are presented to the birth canal. When the OmniCup is properly placed and traction is exerted in-line with the pelvic axis, malpositions of the fetal head can be corrected.

The Omni-MT has the same great features as the OmniCup with the addition of the Traction Force Indicator. The Traction Force Indicator is designed to measure the force exerted during traction. This allows the operator to correlate tactile sensation of traction force with a visual scale, helping to reduce “pop-offs” and especially valuable for training purposes

The Omni-C is designed specifically for the confined abdominal space of C-section deliveries. Its use contributes to less blood loss, fewer extensions of the uterine incision, and fewer cervical lacerations.1 The Omni-C’s even slimmer cup profile, finger grooves and baffle filter on the inside make it the only vacuum designed specifically for use during C-section.

The ProCup offers a soft flexible cup which expands and molds to the fetal head. Specifically for use with low occiput anterior and outlet presentations, if you prefer a rigid stem over a flexible stem then this is the vacuum for you.
