The schaerer® MIS-Extension is designed to specifically meet the unique requirements of minimally invasive hip surgery, as an extension for schaerer operating tables.
Developed in collaboration with leading Swiss researchers and surgeons on the basis of a new kinematic concept, the schaerer® MIS-Extension offers a completely innovative, flexible and easy to handle operating concept.
The schaerer® MIS-Extension is a flexible, easily
operable instrument for assisting in minimally
invasive surgery with the main focus on hip surgery.
The instrument allows the positioning of the lower
extremity as required in regard to the surgery
practice and therefore is especially adapted to
ensure safe and efficient procedures.
Already after a short introduction the system enables
competent handling thanks to its state of the art
ergonomics. As a result of its novel kinematic concept, it reduces the risks of minimally invasive
operations and makes the controlling and the overview of the operating field easier for the surgeon
during the whole operating procedure.
With the development of this innovative extensionand positioning instrument, Schaerer Medical AG
provides a support system aligned to the particular
requirements of gentle orthopaedic surgery, which is
also capable of being expanded for applications
beyond hip joint surgery.
The schaerer® MIS-Extension (patent pending) has
been developed in close cooperation with experienced Swiss orthopaedists and surgeons on the
basis of a new kinematics concept.
MIS (Minimal Invasive Surgery) designates a muscle
protecting procedure in surgery on the hip joint.
The objective is the minimisation of damage to the
