NANOLINE® Insulated Needles for use with Nerve Stimulator

LESS PUNCTURE FORCE REQUIRED .... HIGHLY PRECISE STIMULATION.
NanoLine® heralds a new era in thin-technology insulated coating. With cannula treated with conventional insulation coating, puncture and stimulating performance is hindered by inevitable thickness irregularities, increased outer diameter of cannula due to coating thickness, and uneven transition from coating to uncoated tip. Nanoline® overcomes these difficulties with a proprietory coating process which results in an ultra-thin insulation layer of constant thickness and smooth transition of coating toward the uninsulated cannula tip. Insulating value is not compromised in the least to achieve the thin coat. The thin coat of insulation can only be perceived by the addition of a light golden coloring.

The inner lumen of the Nanoline cannula is coated too - resulting in better flow of anesthetic. NanoLine® insulated needles are complete with centimeter depth graduations on the cannula shaft.

Sprotte® Atraumatic Insulated Needle   Needles with atraumatic needle point geometry reduce the trauma to the tissue resultant from the puncture thrust, which in turn prevents perineural haematomas and allows for repeated blocks at the same point of injection. Due to its point geometry, the clinician will experience a pronounced "click" as an atraumatic needle enters the neural sheath.

In addition, an atraumatic needle allows the clinician to approach the sheath/nerve from a perpendicular angle instead of the parallel approach required when using a bevelled needle.
