Safety Scalpels

This safety category has products that reduce the number of accidental sticks from scalpels, particularly in the operating room. Safety scalpels include quick-release scalpel blade handles, retracting scalpels, and ultrasonic scalpels.

TechnoCut Plus® Safety Scalpel
The TechnoCut Plus® Safety Scalpel is truly a new generation innovation.
The traditional scalpel with a disposable blade is not without risk or safety: The attaching to or removing of the blade from the scalpel handle is a manual and rather cumbersome process, often resulting in injury. While there is an obvious risk to the nurse or doctor, the less obvious risk is that to the patient. If a nurse, surgeon or assistant is accidentally cut during the procedure, the patient is placed at significant risk.
  • Passing of a used scalpel with an exposed blade between a surgeon and theatre nurse is risky and any lapse in concentration can result in injury.
  • Blade protruding from sharps bins can also result in unnecessary injury.
  • Mislaid or dropped scalpel blades place all healthcare workers at risks.
TechnoCut Plus® Safety Scalpel
The top activated button of the TechnoCut Plus® makes it easy to use complimenting current techniques. Top activation overcomes the limiting factor of side activated safety scalpels. The surgeon’s index finger automatically rests on the button allowing for simple and quick retraction or extension of the blade. Experience has shown that under pressure surgeons do not retract the blade before passing when they have to change their grip, perform an additional step or procedure, or when they require two hands in the process. The surgeon’s index finger that forms part of his natural grip holds the blade in position removing the need for a front lock.
  • Top Activated - Ambidextrous
  • Audible “clicks” indicate blade position: fully extended, retracted and final lock
  • Final lock to prevent the re-use of the blade
  • Fully closed front end – no blade movement
  • Available in sizes #10, 11, 12, 15 and 20
  • Simple and cost effective assembly consisting of three parts that are extremely easy to maneuver
