Surgical Retractor Handrests
Definition : Handrests designed to permit appropriate placement of the surgeon's hands during delicate surgical procedures. These handrests may be made of different materials and have different shapes according to the procedure to be performed; they are fixed to and/or are an integral part of a surgical (e.g., neurosurgery, ophthalmic) retractor. Surgical retractor handrests are intended to make the surgeon more comfortable and facilitate the manipulation of surgical instruments during procedures that require steady control of hand movements, such as neurology and ophthalmic surgery.
