The needle driver hybrid

A large number of surgical procedures are carried out in health care where tissue/organ is opened and then sealed. The most common sealing method is suturing with needle and thread where the needle is held with a surgical instrument, a needle holder. Existing needle holders are not optimal for two handles, which means that the surgeon is forced to unfavourable grip changes. These grip changes takes time, is ergonomically unsound and leads to the surgeon unwittingly pulls the tissue the needle is stuck in. The invention “The needle driver hybrid” is an important modification of the needle holder, which enables locking of the needle in the different grips.
