B | BRAUN Aesculap
The international company B | BRAUN Aesculap
which was originally founded by Gottfried Jetter in 1867 as an instrument workshop, is now a major manufacturer of surgical instruments on an international level.
For over 100 years, the Aesculap name has stood for quality and reliability. Aesculap’s head office is in Tuttlingen, which is internationally recognised as being a centre for medical technology. Its subsidiaries in a number of important markets ensure we can offer market-specific care that meets the needs of our customers. Aesculap has been developing and manufacturing dental instruments for more than 100 years. Numerous Aesculap innovations are now facilitating the every day practice of dentists all over
the world. A modern and innovative collection of instruments is always available for new surgical and treatment techniques. Targeted diversification has enabled us to develop into a fullrange supplier of instruments in the field of surgical medicine. From general surgery to specialist disciplines, such as dental, microneurosurgery, spinal surgery, cardiothoracic surgery, oral and maxillofacial surgery, orthopaedics (joint implants, osteosynthesis, motor systems) down to endoscopic surgery, we are continuously developing new surgical techniques and instruments in close collaboration with leading surgeons throughout the world for the benefit of patients. From the very start, innovation has been the driving force behind Aesculap’s fast-moving development.
Instruments for Orthodontics
It is not only the materials and workmanship that determine the quality of instruments. Quality instruments must also be based as far as possible on current requirements.
This is why Aesculap has revised its orthodontic instrument line in close collaboration with Dr. Thomas Hinz (Herne) to take into account current requirements in orthodontics. In
addition to function, the size, surface area and weight of the instruments was also central to the review. The combination of high-quality workmanship, balanced ergonomics and improved function make Aesculap instruments a very useful tool for orthodontists.
Ergonomic handling design
The work of orthodontists is, as it always has been, associated with exertion and the strain that results from this. Aesculap has therefore developed an ergonomic handling concept for orthodontists. Thanks to the uniform shape and size of the product lines, all pliers sit well in the hand. Their surface design ensures a secure grip for easier, more comfortable use.
As a worldwide leading manufacturer of surgical instruments, Aesculap orthodontic instruments are made from stainless steel as standard. Nickel-plated and chromium-plated instruments have been banished from orthodontic product ranges for many years now. Orthodontic instruments from Aesculap - just like its surgical instrument range - also meet the strict cleaning, disinfection and sterilisation requirements.... close
