Offered with smooth or textured bottom disks
Specially designed smooth disk edges
Available in sterile and nonsterile packaging
Application Forceps for FlapFix
Only one instrument is needed for tensioning and cutting of the FlapFix
Tensioning to a secure fit and cutting of the tube is done with a single, easy “firm handshake” action
Ergonomic design for either right- or left- handed operation prevents slippage
Easy access to the operation site due to deflected tip
Application Instrument for FlapFix
Only one instrument is needed for crimping, tensioning, and cutting of the FlapFix
Pre-crimping of implants is performed in a single, easy hand movement with a specially designed crimping side
Crimping allows the bone flap to be held in place and repositioned, if necessary, before the final tightening
Tensioning to a secure fit and cutting the tube is done with a single and easy “closing hand” action
Side insertion of the implant into the application instrument prevents depression of the dura
Ergonomic design for either right or left handed operation
