Medtronic has released a new surgical drill for orthopedic, cranial, and spinal procedures. This is the first Medtronic drill featuring finger control as many surgeons prefer not to have to use a pedal that’s often hard to reach and in the way of the feet of others standing around.
This is the first electric drill from Medtronic with integrated finger control and is based on the well-established Legend EHS Stylus® motor. With high torque and a compact size, the Legend EHS Stylus Touch drill offers excellent balance and maneuverability for procedures in tight anatomic spaces. Surgeons can operate the drill using finger control only, footpedal control or both.
Additional features of the Legend EHS Stylus Touch drill include:
Ergonomic positioning and true variable speed adjustment Easy-to-use design and quick set-up Adjustable speeds from 200 to 75,000 RPM
The Legend EHS Stylus Touch drill is powered by Medtronic’s Integrated Power Console (IPC®) system, a multispecialty surgical power console that offers improved intraoperative functionality. With the IPC system’s intuitive touchscreen interface, surgeons can use saved custom settings, quickly adjust irrigation via simple remote control, and run multiple Medtronic handpieces.
As part of the standardized Legend platform, the Legend EHS Stylus Touch drill works with Medtronic’s interchangeable Legend tools and attachments for a broad range of surgical procedures.
