What makes i-gel unique?

i-gel has a soft, gel-like, non-inflatable cuff, designed to provide an anatomical, impression fit over the laryngeal inlet. The shape, softness and contours accurately mirror the perilaryngeal anatomy. 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.
