DINKLER FREEDOM CLAMP
The Dinkler Surgical Freedom Clamp provides superior fixation by using opposing pin placement. Application of force by the torque knob has an equal and opposite reaction by the opposite side providing optimal fixation. The Freedom Clamp performs well with nearly 50% of the amount of force that is typically used with skull clamps using a rocker arm. The force being applied by the torque screws does not need to be as great as clamps that employ a rocker arm. Clamps with rocker arms require the torque screw input force to be sufficient enough to distribute the applied force to the rocker arm pins.
The Dinkler Surgical Freedom Skull Clamp, with the rotatable arc, is a major improvement to all designs employing a rocker arm concept. The Freedom Clamp opposed pin design provides superior fixation regardless of procedure. An additional third pin can be placed circumferentially about the opposing pins to prevent rotation and support fixation which is advantageous for both adult and younger patients. Third pin placement is completely independent from the two opposed pins.
SUGITA MULTI-PURPOSE HEAD FRAME – available in either metal or carbon-fiber.
The Sugita Multi-purpose Head Frame rigidly fixates the aptient’s head during neurological procedures and serves as a retraction work station for the surgeon. As opposed to Mayfield1 or Doro2, the Sugita Head Frame allows for up to six (6) points of head fixation making them ideal for pediatric and other porcedures where maximum support is necessary. there are numerous retraction options making it ideally suited for aneurysm, AVM and tumor surgeries. It features a full 3600 of rotation and interoperative adjusting. The carbon-fiber head frame is designed for intra-operative angiography and will facilitate the Brainlab3 and Stealth4Navigation systems.
