French term or phrase:multi-possession
In a FR-FR document about a new single-use, disposable medical device for performing nose examinations, the author lists several devices that are traditionally used such as the metal speculum and then says concerning these traditional devices: "nécessitent une stérilisation et donc une multi-possession". What does "multi-possession" mean in relation to traditional metal devices that require sterilization, and why do these devices "need" multi-possession? Thanks very much for suggestions.
