AS AN EXTENSION OF THE SURGEON’S THUMB and forefinger, forceps need to grasp and release with the same sensitivity as a pair of fingertips. The claws on surgical forceps are specially designed to make a firm, yet gentle, grasp of the tissue. The anatomical forceps are designed, as much as possible, to take an atraumatic grip on sensitive tissue.
It is the fine tuning that creates the perfect balance with a smooth, resilient spring action and a firm grip. The surface grooves increase gripping power even further. This gives the surgeon full control while causing as little harm to the tissue as possible.
Forceps are among the surgical instruments that founder Albert Stille learned to make from scratch during his apprenticeship in the 1830’s. Forceps are seemingly simple instrument but still demands ultra-precision in the manufacturing process. Over the years, STILLE’s forceps continue to be refined and are today recognized for their unique feel and excellent balance in combination with unsurpassed longevity.
