The SAFhandle™ disposable safety retractable scalpel incorporates an innovative safety mechanism that allow the users to easily move the blade back and forth into the scalpel casing during use thus minimising the exposure of users to the blade. Then, once the procedure is completed, the blade can easily be pulled completely back into the scalpel handle and permanently locked in.
For added safety, SAFhandle™ disposable safety retractable scalpels are fitted with SAFhandle™ round tip safety blades to provide protection even when scalpels are in use.
Step 2: To Pass – Retract button inside handle and sight notch with indicator line. The scalpel can now be safely passed and can be reused as needed. Minimised risk during passing and procedure.
Step 3: To Dispose – Retract button to the pass position. Then pull the button further back until a positive click is heard. The scalpel is now locked ready for disposal. Steadfast and audible disposal lock. Disposal status easy to verify on reverse side.
