Everything about the i-gel has been designed to work in perfect unison with the anatomy;
the i-gel design was inspired by the physiology of the perilaryngeal framework itself.
The shape, softness and contours accurately mirror the perilaryngeal anatomy to create the perfect fit. This innovative concept means that no cuff inflation is required. The i-gel works in harmony with the patient's anatomy so that compression and displacement trauma are significantly reduced or eliminated.
A major development since the laryngeal mask airway. i-gel has changed the face of airway management and is now widely used in anaesthesia and resuscitation across the globe.
Made from a medical-grade thermoplastic elastomer, it has been designed to create a non-inflatable, anatomical seal of the pharyngeal, laryngeal and perilaryngeal structures whilst avoiding compression trauma.
