PK AIM / Surgical instrument

PK AIM
PK AIM

Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

The PK AIM is a disposable instrument for open surgery and combines – for the first time in the market – two standard instruments: a bipolar pincette and a monopolar needle electrode. A sliding toggle switch on the handle allows the surgeon to change between the two individual functions and use the device as different instruments. This easy handling allows effective working without loss of focus. The visual design follows OLYMPUS' Corporate Product Design (CPD).
