HF Cable Series

The newly developed system of HF cables has received several upgrades as a result of the redesign. The visibility and traceability of the cables and adapters has been significantly improved during endoscopic surgeries through the integration of an orange line in the cable. In addition, the soft anti-kink protection is also a grip area and thus improves the grip and the haptic quality when attaching and detaching the product. Integrated finger stoppers offer safety even with high tensile forces. The orange front is designed in a way that it completely disappears into the device when correctly plugged into the generator, giving intuitive feedback to the user. The flat and smooth design of the connectors facilitates cleaning and processing. The visible dot helps with the allocation during preparation and indicates that the cables and adapters are autoclavable.

The design is based on the corporate product design defined by Held+Team.
