Beaver-Visitec International places safety-engineered, single-use knives in the hands of cataract surgeons around the world.
Beaver® Xstar® Safety Knives feature a specially designed, integrated retractable shield that protects the blade in procedure and handling. Beaver® Safety Cataract Knives are designed to minimize the risk of accidental surgical blade injuries that could occur during all phases of a surgical procedure: before use, during passing, between steps of the procedure, after use, or during disposal. The shield is activated by the user through a spring-assisted slider that provides tactile and audible feedback in both the shielded and unshielded positions.
The knife is conveniently offered as a single-use product, eliminating the need for special care that is associated with reusable products. Beaver® Xstar® Safety Knives are available in slit, crescent and sideport blades in a wide range of sizes.
The Xstar® Blade technology is based on a proprietary grindless process for manufacturing surgical blades, for exceptional sharpness and consistency. Our single and double bevel blade geometry allows the cataract surgeon to create the desired incision architecture, whether the incision is scleral or corneal. Request more information
