ERAGONstitch – the benchmark for ergonomics and quality in laparoscopic needle-holders. The design accounts for any surgeon’s unique hand and positioning needs by enabling a multitude of different positions. The handles feature wide contact surfaces at sensitive points, precise grip and manipulation possibilities. Perfected with an intuitive locking mechanism these features result in a best-in-class user experience. Fatigue-free working, which maximizes comfort and precision.
