- The ACUFEX Difference
ACUFEX™ Handheld Instruments are synonymous with performance, dependability and durability. Over the years, our extensive line of punches, scissors and graspers has earned a worldwide reputation for sharpness, maneuverability, precision and strength.
- The ACUFEX Edge
The extraordinary sharpness of our ACUFEX instruments is accomplished through a proprietary sharpening process that integrates state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques with precision hand craftsmanship. The exceptionally sharp surgical edge is enhanced by unique tip designs and tight construction tolerances, replacing “tearing cuts” with clean, scissor-like cuts and minimal tissue trauma.
- Pinless Hinge Design
ACUFEX instruments are linked together by a unique system of grooves and ridges on the upper jaw, shaft and actuator, eliminating the need for pins. The pinless hinge design allows even distribution of force over the bearing surfaces while minimizing stress points.
- Selection of Ergonomic Handles
ACUFEX instruments are designed to fit your hand comfortably and are offered in four ergonomic handle choices, from a traditional loop style, to handles with an infinite-position locking design, to a “cigar” handle.
- Multiple Tip Configurations
Designed for easy access to all areas of the meniscus, Smith & Nephew offers a variety of tip designs for cutting, trimming and grasping.
- Manufacturing Expertise
Not only do we design the instruments, we design the machines that make the instruments. In addition to custom tooling, we employ demanding quality control standards and rigid test procedures that result in optimal consistency from unit to unit.
