Self-Retaining Surgical Retractor

A self-retaining, single-use retractor system providing clear visualization, optimal exposure and access to the operative area. Stay hooks are placed into the tissue and the elastic side is inserted into the slots on the ring, providing counter traction. The slots on the ring easily secure the stays in place, but readily release when rapid reposition is required

...for surgical self-retaining ring retractors! In operating rooms, the overhead light is repositioned every 7 minutes - interrupting surgery and impacting

safety for patients. Our Light will fix that problem - forever!

Our Surgical Retractor Q&A

What is a self-retaining retractor?

 

Self-retaining refers to retractors that are using counter-traction to hold the retractor in place. With ring retractors, this is done by using stretchy hook stays that are fastened in the tissue to be retracted, and secured along the ring in grooves on the frame.

What makes our surgical retractor unique?

 

Our self-retaining surgical retractor is the next generation of single-use retractor systems (older versions have been around for 15-20 years and have screw mechanisms). It helps provide clear visualization, optimal exposure and access to the operative during surgical procedures, minimizing the need for additional assistants.

What does our surgical retractor consist of?

 

Our surgical retractor is made of lightweight yet strong medical grade plastic. The stays are made of steel hooks encased in medical grade silicone, with stretchy tails for optimal tension. Our surgical retractor uses less plastic than the older versions, thus reducing waste, weight and environmental impact.

How is our surgical retractor used?

 

Our surgical retractor is placed over the incision, with stay hooks of choice placed into the tissue and secured on the frame, facilitating rapid re-positioning when required. The unique design protected CAM locks allow for single-handed adjustments with a simple flick of a thumb.
