July 2013


The IUB™ SCu300A is an intrauterine device (IUD) intended for women who need long-acting reversible contraception. It is in development by Ocon Medical Ltd. The device is made from memory metal, also called shape memory alloy, and copper. It is designed to work in a similar way to other IUDs by stopping the sperm and egg from surviving in the womb or fallopian tubes or by preventing a fertilised egg from implanting in the womb.
