Published: 24 September 2019

We’re delighted to share with you that the Multigate Cadence® Suction Irrigator was featured in series 3, episode 2 of the TV show "Australia By Design", which aired on Channel 10 on Monday the 16th of September 2019.

"Australia by Design" showcases some of the latest innovations from around Australia.  It is hosted by TV personality and designer Jamie Durie.

This TV appearance follows the Multigate Cadence® Suction Irrigator receiving a prestigious Gold Good Design Award on the 11th of July 2019, in recognition of its outstanding design and innovation.

In the TV show, Presenter Ale Anastasiou discusses the design process and importance of prototyping with Alanna Leighton, Head of Design and Innovation at Multigate.  She also received a quick lesson from Dr Ken Wong, with the help of a laparoscopic simulator, on how to use the device to clean a surgical site. 

Ale asks Dr. Wong if the Cadence® Suction Irrigator would have a huge implication in his practice. Dr Wong comments that it would, as good equipment helps reduce pain in his hands and fatigue, which ultimately improves patient outcomes. 

Ale described the Multigate Cadence® Suction Irrigator as "a perfect example of how the Design Process should work."
