NEW Unique Atraumatic Hooks
The stays and hooks on a retractor are incredibly important, as any trauma inflicted on the tissue during surgery can result in considerable pain during the patient’s recovery.
Designed for Patient Safety
The new Semi-blunt hook is the perfect step between the razor sharp and very precise 5mm Sharp Hook and the more forgiving 5mm Blunt hook.
The new Semi-Blunt is the best of both worlds: combines a reliable hold with less sharp penetration, staying where it is placed and able to hold higher loads under more tension.

Low profile, holds securely but cause less trauma
Dr Agur : “The hooks supplied with other retractors are available in standard sharp or blunt varieties, but I found that the sharp hooks caused too much tearing and the damaged areas needed suturing, whereas the blunt hooks didn’t hold the tissue well at all. In contrast, the hooks with the Galaxy II are pointed enough but not too sharp, and provide just the right balance between adequately retracting the tissue and avoiding unnecessary trauma.”
A more patient-centric option
“With the Galaxy II, the degree of tension is under my control, giving me adequate retraction of tissues while minimising the degree of trauma to allow faster healing and avoid any long-term problems for the patient. The tissue damage has never been extensive enough to require suturing, and I’ve never had to give additional painkillers to a patient as a result of using it; it’s a huge benefit for the patient.”
The COVID-19 pandemic have led us forward with alternative ways of launching medical devices. As a result, you can now have a product demo with a rep at any time, from anywhere, thanks to our Med Ed teams in Europe and USA.
Instead of traveling to you with a demo product, we will fedex it to you, at the address most convenient to you. Once you are done evaluating it and know what you want to use, we simply organise a collection of the kit.
