Sir George hands over to Patrick Sparkes, Operations Director of Spembly medical in Andover, a plaque from the Design Council.
The Selector Integra was chosen by the Design Council for a “Millennium Product” award, to show that Britain is the creative powerhouse of the world. The Integra is an ultrasonic surgical aspirator which removes tumours selectively and microsurgically, giving surgeons the ability to destroy unwanted tissue adjacent to or attached to vital structures, with reduced risk to patients.
“I was very impressed at the way this small firm stays ahead of the competition, by developing and refining its products and working closely with surgeons. I congratulate them warmly on this award”
