Many veterinary surgical instruments require some locking mechanism to perform their function. Most common of these are surgical forceps and retractors. Existing instruments rely on locking mechanisms of either the ratchet type or spin-lock type. Ratchets, generally considered to be more user-friendly, retain the desired position without additional surgeon/technician involvement whereas spin-lock forceps are fixed by tightening a nut, typically many turns before stability is achieved, a clumsy action when handling small, delicate fragments and tissues. However, the insensitive incremental adjustments of ratchet forceps can damage tissues, are less robust, and are prone to accidental release.
The KYON FineTouch family of products provide surgeons with:
The most precise and sensitive locking surgical instruments.
A large selection of function specific jaws, including targeting and length measuring forceps are now available, with additional sizes and types, including Gelpi’s.
User-friendly through optimal weigth distribution and material combination. All of the critically loaded small components and the jaws are made from hardened stainless steel. To reduce the weight of the instrument, the handles are made from a high-strength titanium alloy.
The locking mechanism of the KYON Fine Touch Locking Surgical Instruments is based on friction. The Fine Touch friction-lock is resistant to the wear and tear routinely seen in ratcheted locks, especially the finer, micro-ratchet, types. Release of the lock, even under full load is easy and causes no damage to the mechanism.
