Single packed additional claws
Retractors have been used for centuries, and are not a novel idea in any way: the need to hold back tissue to create better visuals and increased access to the surgical site is as old as the first incision. With better production techniques and improved materials, retractors are becoming lighter and stronger, and with better adapted locking mechanisms.
In a large variety of shapes and sizes, patients and retractors come in all forms. The Galaxy II retractors are designed for surgeries where superficial skin and tissue obscures the vision, and where the surgeon needs a low profile retraction to access the area of interest. Galaxy II self-retaining retractors are strong but very light weight, to minimise the pull on the tissue.
Hooks for skin retraction come in a range of options, designed for different kinds of surgeries and different kinds of tissue. Our hooks have an elastic end to ensure superior firm hold and safety, while being gentle on the patient to support healing and minimise post operative pain.
Other benefits of our award winning retractor range include:
- Less plastic means better for the environment.
- Cam lock mechanism allows for single hand operation and adjustment.
- Low profile frame and hooks improve access.
The Galaxy II range is the only range that has a sliding frame (Galaxy II Slider) to adjust for different widths, an atraumatic unique SemiBlunt Hook, and the world only self-retaining ring retractor with a bifurcated light attachment: Galaxy II LUX Connect.
Products used in this hernia image to give Prof Aye Than superior access:

- 3-Finger Claw (order code JUNE3005B-50)
