ROD REDUCER

Improved instrument design and prototype

The customer required development of a novel rod reducer. While typical rod reducers utilize a pistol-grip ratcheting mechanism, this device promised improved handling and visibility while delivering the required forces to properly seat the rod and facilitate final installation of the locking cap.

Engineering Design & Product Improvement

  • CAD design concepts were developed and downselected
  • A functional prototype was produced for evaluation based on the final design

RESULT: The prototype was expedited to support a key cadaver lab. Positive feedback led the customer to pursue this design to compliment their new product line.
