Torque limit devices

More value for your investment!
Let's face it. We all want a quality product for a reasonable price, right? Now you can get more value for the same price with our torque limiting devices. Our product line has a unique mechanism that allows us to guarantee our accuracy for the life of the product (3 years). With an offering of different handles and quick connections, you can be assured of getting the most out your investment. Many of our competitors torque products are only accurate for 6-12 months. In this case, you get a lot more value for a similar price. What are you waiting for? Contact us today to see how we can help minimize both cost of product over time and exposure to an unreliable product in the field. If it were me on the operating table, I'd choose a product that is fully validated and accurate. What do you choose?  With so many variables to offer, we ask you to send us the following information and then we will provide the cooresponding drawing and quotation:  
*quick connection desired
*style and size of handle
*color of handle
*solid or cannulated
*torque required
*quantity needed

Carlson Pronator Retractor

The standard Mini Hohmann Retractor is commonly used for retracting soft tissue during distal radius fracture repair. However, one of the biggest disadvantages of a Mini Hohmann is that it’s not wide enough to retract the pronator quadratus muscle so that there is adequate exposure of the bone. The new Carlson Pronator Retractor® was designed with an elongated wing portion that retracts a much wider section of the pronator for greater exposure. The hook at the end of the retractor engages the radius as the wing retracts the pronator, but the wing does not contact the median nerve. The section above the wing which contacts the median nerve has been narrowed to avoid excessive pressure, and possible damage to the nerve.

Clean Wave Kerrisons

In most spinal punches, tissue and debris can collect and remain trapped between the main body and slider.  This build-up can impede the smooth function of the instrument and prevent proper sterilization as a result of not being completely cleaned prior to sterilization.

The "Clean Wave Punch" has a slider with a wave-like shaped design which allows cleaning brushes easier access through the recesses and openings between the components. 

*The wave like shape reduces friction providing a smoother function

*The forward angled foot plate provides precise and controlled cutting action

*Product has a thin foot plate design for narrow spaces

*A bone ejector is incorporatedinto the design of the 2mm-5mm bite sizes

*Manufactured from high-quality German steel

*Satin finish reduces glare

Easy-Clean Depth Gages

Simplicity at it's best!  Most depth gages are bulky and have narrow pockets where blood and tissue may gather or become lodged and difficult to clean. The "Easy-Clean" series of depth gages solve this problem.  The narrow internal slider comes right out the back of the main body for easy cleaning and that's it!  Nothing complicated about it. Just simple!

OM 60-0230 5.50mm Power Vise Grip.jpg

Distal Radiolucent Retractors

Strong, thin and lightweight, the carbon fiber swivel blades allow direct visualization within the wound site.  Maximizing exposure while minimizing soft tissue stress and trauma was paramount to the design considerations.  Short, blunt atraumatic teeth along each blades leading edge improve grip, yet minimize the potential for trauma to the vulnerable median and ulnar nerves.  The curved interface surfaces distribute the distention forces of retraction while the lateral edges are carefully rounded to avoid injury to soft tissues.  The swivel action allows each blade the freedom to respond and distribute the counter-forces as retraction increases.

Distal Radius Retractor.jpg

BB 56-1236  Wedge Spreader

The Wedge Spreader is used for small bone applications.  The "Wedge" incorporates specially designed blades, which when closed, smoothly slide between the tightest of bone spaces.  As the blades distract, the deep serrations engage the intra-articular surface for a sure grip.  No drilling, no rasping - just insert and distract!
