The Centerline system raises the bar for endoscopic carpal tunnel procedures by increasing safety, visualization, and ergonomics and by reducing the possibility of mechanical failures. Clinical data1,2 supports an earlier return to normal activities of up to 50% over open procedures for carpal tunnel release.
- Safety – The Centerline system puts the surgeon’s hand in line with the blade to provide constant spatial orientation while reducing potential damage to the median nerve.
- Simplified – Straightforward instrumentation and a disposable blade mechanism, which contains all moving parts, may shorten procedure times and lessen the chance of mechanical failures and maintenance issues.
- Straightforward – Single-handed, pull-blade enables quick and controlled release.
- Optimal Comfort – Ergonomic design provides better feel and function.
- Convenient – Sterile, single-use, disposable blade sheath streamlines OR and facility handling.
