Outline

As with every surgery, highly skilled techniques maintained by training and experience is required for procedures such as grasping and detaching tissues while preserving normal structures and nerve system. Outside of surgical practice, the same technique is used in Asian cultures when eating with chopsticks. The inspiration with this forceps is to provide a familiar design aesthetic and function similar to chop sticks that it frees the surgeon from stress as soon as he/she begins to hold it in their hand. Thus leading delicate and accurate procedures.
