Plate-Bending Pliers

Plate-Bending Pliers | Red Dot Design Award

The plate-bending pliers are used for bone fractures in veterinary care, for instance to adapt a bone plate to the shape of the bone to which the plate is to be fixed with screws. The design concept enables even bending and limits the deformation of the screw holes, so that the screws will fit properly. The pliers are made of high-strength aluminium and finished with a special hard-anodising coating that protects the instrument against corrosion.

Statement by the Jury

The sophisticated design of these plate-bending pliers strongly supports gentle and safe surgical procedures.
