Zelta / Suturing Tools


Zelta redefines the process of abdominal fascial layer closure by the movement and posture of the surgeons’ wrist. It is a pair of suturing tools that consist of a needle holder and a forcep, which enables surgeons to suture the open wound comfortably, efficiently and safely. The overlaying locking system eliminates the bad wrist posture of surgeons when gripping onto the needle holder, at the same time allowing the suture needle to be adjacent to the fascial layer - the most important layer for abdominal fascial closure. Together with forcep that protecting the underlying intestinal bowels, Zelta aims to ease the tedious suturing process.
