Up to 10x faster than conventional methods
The Joey's efficient design and one handed use have been shown to improve delivery times by as much as 10x. This performance edge becomes more pronounced in multiple births where efficiency is paramount to the safe delivery of each infant. As can be seen on the Discovery Health Channel footage in the Joey Short Overview video, the Hedricks' sextuplets were delivered in only two and a half minutes using the Joey System.
Reduces the Spray
The Joey Spray Guard provides a concurrent clamping and cutting action that shields the
caregiver from blood spray. This advanced, ergonomically designed product will change the face of delivery.
The package includes the Joey Clamp (the baby-side clamp), an umbilical cord cutter incorporating a maternal clamp,
an Opening Tool and Instructions for Use.
The Joey Spray Guard is ergonomically designed for one-handed use. Its double latching system ensures complete cut and closure of the device.

outward on Joeys ears easily ejects the Joey Clamp, the only piece
which stays with the baby.

For those physicians that draw cord blood
samples with a needle and syringe the Joey Spray Guard may
help prevent needle sticks. After the cord is severed the product housing
side of the device remains on the placenta side of the cord. The
housing acts as a handle for the physician to safely draw cord blood.
Ease of Use
The Joey Spray Guard was ergonomically designed to be operated with one hand providing
maximum control and maneuverability during the procedure.
The Joey Spray Guard clamps and cuts in one simple motion
not three separate steps. The device clamps both the maternal and
infant sides of the cord.
The Joey Spray Guard reduces the need for additional
Color provides the caregiver the ability
to identify the infants in
multiple birth scenarios. With the Joey Spray Guard
color it is easy to identify not only the infants but also their
umbilical cords after cord severance. This is important because
when cord blood and cord gases are taken the caregiver has the ability
to match the unique cord with the correct infant.
Multiple colors are generally used for multiple births and are available by special order in larger quantities.
