The Future for Suture
The EasyWhip™ suturing needle is transforming stitching in orthopedic
ligament and tendon reconstruction surgery.
The patented two-part needle technology simplifies and standardizes suturing methods by fundamentally changing how stitching can be performed.
It enables easy, fast, accurate stitch placement with less variation.
Unique two-part design with a needle tip and a connectable rod/insert
Needle components are attached to the ends of
ultra-high-strength orthopedic suture
Black color provides ideal tissue contrast for improved suture visualization
Intuitive design allows users to gain proficiency in just one training session
Stitching is a critical step in ligament and tendon reconstruction surgery.
Speed and quality of stitching are two essential elements for clinical success of a repair.
EasyWhip™ is the first suturing needle that provides the flexibility to achieve both.
The beauty of EasyWhip™ is that it’s sophisticated, yet so simple. And it’s reproducible. Because of its configuration, there are three or four different stitch patterns that you can make with EasyWhip™.
EasyWhip™ is versatile and enables several stitch techniques, including:
a traditional whip stitch
the proprietary WhipLock™ stitch (combines a whip stitch with a Krackow stitch)
custom patterns according to individual needs
31% FASTER STITCHING
The two-part needle allows both graft ends to be securely fixed during stitching, thus making it easier to place precise and consistent stitches quickly
Data on File
In pre-clinical bench testing on porcine tissue, fewer premature failures were observed in the first 200 cyclic loading cycles of grafts stitched with EasyWhip™ versus conventional needles.
