Umbi-Ring Cord Bands
New Umbi Cord Ring
Umbi-Ring maintains continuous compressing action around the umbilical cord, until umbilical stump falls off. Umbi-Ring is sterile, inexpensive, easy to use, and provides more comfort for the baby. Umbi-Ring is also made in the USA.
Umbi-Ring consists of a latex band around two plastic pieces, forming a ring. Once the plastic pieces are separated, the band shrinks down and compresses the umbilical cord to stop blood flow. This device is similar to a product, no longer available, called the AGA cord ring. Unlike the AGA cord ring, the Umbi-Ring constricts slowly which allows it to be moved into place, momentarily and prevents possible cord laceration.
