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.
