Surgical Tools & Instruments

As the frequency of minimally invasive surgery (MIS) and less invasive orthopaedic surgeries continues to rise, it is important to have tools that are lighter and more ergonomic to prevent surgeon fatigue. These tools must retain the ability of multiple autoclave cycles without degredation of the color, stability, or integrity of the product. Advancements in engineered resins that can withstand autoclaving and some of the harshest cleaning agents provide new opportunities to develop your next surgical tool out of plastic instead of metal.

Vaupell is a leader in metal to plastic conversion and can provide assistance in material selection, coordination with material vendors including compounders to develop a product that meets weight reduction, ergonomic, and cost-containment needs.
