Stiff, low-profile needle shaft: reduces bending, improving control and designed to minimize trauma to the TFCC and adjacent ligaments
Ergonomic handle: enhances the user experience, feels comfortable in the hand
Auditory confirmation: assures implants are deployed
One-handed, fast-click deployment: allows for the deployment of implants in any hand position
360 active deployment: delivers fast and easy implant deployment from any hand position
Knot Pusher/Suture Cutter: combines two instruments in one, allowing the knot to be advanced to the desired tension and to trim the excess suture
Disposable Slotted Cannula: Protective blue splint cannula minimizes trauma to soft tissue during insertion into the joint space.
