Product description and innovation synopsis:
The Table Top Rod Shears from gSource provides:
One instrument shears 2 different rod diameters – 5.0mm [3/16”] and 6.35mm [1/4”]. Rod diameter holes are clearly marked. Collapsible handle allows for a smaller footprint when stored.
Rods are sheared, leaving a smooth and clean surface rather than a sharp, jagged, burr-like surface common when using a standard pinching-type rod cutter. This results in less trauma for the patient.
Provides sturdy and accurate shearing of rods. The handle extends and locks to provide surgeons with increased leverage, allowing for greater ease in cutting rods.
