A sterile medical device used for clamping and cutting the umbilical cord during childbirth.

The jury says
Birth is both a major life event, charged with meaning on an individual level, and a standard procedure in the healthcare sector. Thus, improving procedures in the maternity ward improves the experience for all families. The disposable instrument ClampCut makes it simpler to clamp and cut the umbilical cord on newborns, so that the midwife can focus on mother and child rather than on hygiene procedures. The instrument has a simple design and was tested in cooperation with midwives, which makes it intuitive to use and reduces the risk of human error.
