Disposable Safety Scalpels
The disposable Weighted Safety Scalpel has a shield that slides over the knife blade when it is not in use. The simple shield covers the knife blade and has a lockable safety shield button (top or bottom) that confirms activation with an audible click. This design feature provides protection for both nurse and surgeon when passing scalpels during surgery and complies with OSHA regulations as a safety-engineered device. The safety scalpel also has the weight of a reusable scalpel, so as not to compromise the tactile feel and sharpness demanded by surgeons.
