PEEK Kirschner Wire Applicator The PEEK Kirschner wire applicator enables the implantation of a wire within the scope of an osteosynthesis by single-handed operation. A stainless steel type for sterilizing is also available (KWA). The balance between function, form and material is a deciding aspect specifically in the medical field. The Kirschner wire applicator combines these elementary qualities into a unique medical instrument. The two-piece instrument can be opened by pressure relief during insertion of wire, pulled back, thereafter closed anew, whereby the wire is gradually inserted into the bone up to the desired position. For easier insertion and enhanced stability of rotation the wire tip can be pre-bent by means of an integrated bending device. The inside of the handle is fitted with a protective device so as to protect the surgeonÂ´s hand against improper handling.
