SPOTLIGHT ON: Instrumentation
Nova Tract laparoscopic dynamic retractor, a 5mm device
designed for general, colorectal, gynecologic, urologic, and
robotic-assisted minimally invasive surgery offers improved tissue
manipulation with its exclusive tension adjusting system, coupled
with the ability to easily modify the angle of retraction as needed.
The unique patent-pending retraction system helps increase
visualization while reducing the number of ports needed allowing the surgeon to achieve less
invasive reduced-port surgeries without changing surgical technique.
The Switch Safety Scalpel
Medline Industries, Inc. introduces
The Switch Safety Scalpel.
Previous safety scalpels
couldn’t match the feel
and usability of the
traditional #3. But The
Switch is designed to feel,
weigh, and act like your regular #3. It’s reusable, like the #3,
weighs within 2 grams of the #3, and
fits any standard scalpel blade in the market. It’s also the first scalpel able to touchlessly eject the
scalpel blade into the needle counter after surgery.
Clinimed's unique concave
blade design, originally implemented on the company's Lipo-Abdominoplasty retractor, is
utilized on its new breast retractor. This new retractor design
allows the user to apply force
in either a PUSH (reduction
procedures) or PULL (
augmentation procedures) motion. The
concave blade is enhanced by
horizontal deep “serrations”
which enhance stability when
lifting. The unique design
continues to the handle, where
Clinimed engineers implemented a large ovoid “geometry”
design to improve grip strength.
The handle is also the differen-
tiating point between the two
