Feel and balance characterize Stille’s forceps. During manufacturing, the spring tension in the instrument is adjusted in order to obtain the tension and feel required to precisely control the instrument without tiring the surgeon’s hand.

As an extension of the surgeon’s thumb and forefinger, forceps need to grasp and release with the same sensitivity as a pair of fingertips. The jaws on surgical forceps are specially designed to make a firm, yet gentle, grasp of the tissue. The dressing forceps are designed, as much as possible, to take an atraumatic grip on sensitive tissue. It is the fine tuning that creates the perfect balance with a smooth, resilient spring action and a firm grip. The surface grooves increase gripping power even further. This gives the surgeon full control while causing as little harm to the tissue as possible. Forceps are seemingly simple instrument but still demands ultra-precision in the manufacturing process. Over the years, STILLE’s forceps continue to be refined and are today recognized for their unique feel and excellent balance in combination with unsurpassed longevity.
