Articulating Hand-Held Instruments Ease Arm, Hand Fatigue

Autonomy Laparo-Angle Instruments from Cambridge Endo is a full line of articulating hand-held laparoscopic instruments.
While traditional hand-held laparoscopic devices are rigid, these new instruments have seven degrees of freedom designed to provide surgeons more access and control. The instruments are engineered to eliminate fatiguing hand, arm or shoulder positions for laparoscopic surgeons.
The Autonomy Laparo-Angle instrument line includes a needle holder and the electrocautery-capable Metzenbaum scissors, Maryland dissector and electrosurgery hook.
All instruments are 5mm long and can be used in standard trocars. According to the manufacturer, Autonomy Laparo-Angle Instruments are affordably priced.
