The basic orthopaedic instruments are made of pure stainless steel. The matt surface finish has been optimised for reprocessing and glare-free surgery, and the symmetrical design of the instruments provides clear orientation for its correct use. Fluently rounded shapes create an ergonomic impression, enabling an optimal fit for the user’s hand. Thanks to elongated surfaces and a uniform structure, the grip areas are clearly recognisable.
Statement by the jury Due to their uncompromising materiality, the basic orthopaedic instruments impress with their outstanding ergonomic and sustainable properties.
