This market is segmented into reusable, disposable, reposable and articulating hand instruments. Reposable instruments consist of a reusable handle and disposable tip; they offer a cost-effective solution to maintain both the hygiene and the performance standards of the instrument during surgery while accommodating healthcare budgets. The majority of reposable instruments are scissors.
Disposable and reposable scissors are preferred by surgeons because they ensure that the incision quality is not compromised by providing a sharp, new blade for each procedure. Disposable instruments generate the highest per-procedure revenue, as a device is used in only one procedure and then discarded. The cost of these single-use instruments accumulates over time, which can burden capital budgets. Reusable instruments generate the lowest revenue per-procedure, as they are used for multiple surgeries before replacement. The number of uses per hand instrument varies greatly, and depends on both the sterilization facilities available at the hospital, and the surgeon’s discretion.
In articulating hand instruments, the proximal handle or distal tip of the instrument can rotate and distend. These devices were introduced to be used in conjunction with the single port access devices, and require additional surgical training. Both reusable and disposable versions are available, but due to the difficulty of sterilizing the reusable products, they are very rarely sold. Articulating hand instruments that are reusable contain wires, and if the hospital does not have an ultrasound cleaner, than the sterility of the instrument cannot be guaranteed. As such, this report only takes into account the disposable options.
