Often, an innovation design starts from a material. This is the case of the new laparoscope clamps developed in carbon fiber, a material that is highly resistant, light and easy to handle. The design was created through the partnership between Edlo and MM Design studio, and that produced this absolute novelty. It was ideated to resolve, above all, the problem of ergonomics during long surgical interventions. The new clamps were designed to be easily grasped due to the rounded edges.

The study on ergonomics furthermore, absolutely enhanced performance and user-friendliness of the handle of the rotating thumb. This important aspect allows right-handed and left-handed surgeons to use the device and accompanies the movement of the thumb with minimum rotations, improving the grasp. Also the rapid hook and unhook system of the tube was studied to improve operations used for sterilization.
