Engineered with safety in mind, the Tactile Needle is not only sharp enough to pierce the capsule but for safety, it features a spring-loaded obturator. This reduces the risk of damage to surrounding tissue and articular cartilage while in open joint space.
Features & Benefits
- Safe – The spring-loaded blunt obturator pops out when in open joint space, intended to reduce the risk of damage to the femoral head, cartilage, labrum and other soft tissues.
- Tactile Feedback – The needle provides tactile feedback to confirm capsule entry so that surgeons know when they are safely in open space.
