A tool for doctors and nurses to improve the flow of work when taking samples from the lungs and cleaning the lungs of patients.

The Jury says
This provides a much-improved method for taking samples and performing suction cleaning in lung operations. There are several innovations involved, but mainly the one handed operation means the procedures can be performed by a single person which is a great design improvement. The solution also reduces the risk of contamination and provides for an overall safer procedure. Until now, there has not been any major changes in these methods since the late 1970s and the development team took a design-led approach to finding a new and simplified solution.
