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

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™.

WhipLock™ Stitch

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

BIOMECHANICAL BENEFITS

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.
