Outline

Medical micro scissors for neurosurgical operations, which enable a cut-off and peel-off of fine tissue under the microscope. There is an issue of practitioner fatigue if they perform sophisticated, deep operations for hours on end in a surgery. These micro scissors, which can be used comfortably and smoothly without feeling any stress during delicate surgery, have been developed in collaboration with Professor Kikuta from the Division of Neurosurgery, Department of Sensory & Locomotor Medicine, Faculty of Medical Sciences, University of Fukui, as one of the clinical sites.
