Caiman® 5

Caiman 5 features a unique jaw design, providing uniform compression, resulting in one seal confidence. Caiman 24 cm, 36 cm and 44 cm shaft is used for a variety of laparoscopic and open surgical applications.

Patented jaw mechanism

The Caiman 5 features a jaw engineered like no other. The lower jaw hinge causes the tip of the instrument to close first – capturing tissue and preventing slippage. This unique design then allows the upper and lower jaws to compress tissue in parallel, creating even compression forces distal to proximal.

Versatile jaw design

Caiman 5 features an innovative jaw, resulting in an instrument that allows both fine dissection and powerful grasping. Only Caiman's 26.5 mm jaws can seal large, complex, tissue bundles, spot weld, or seal and cut areas.

26.5 mm sealing length

Enlarged vessel sealing length results in improved surgical efficiency.

24 cm, 36 cm and 44 cm working length

The Caiman 5 is designed for a variety of laparoscopic and open surgical applications.
