The Octopus HYDRA (double arm) retractor holder replicates a pair of human arms with shoulder, elbow and wrist joints. Tightening or loosening the thumbscrew on the elbow joint simultaneously affects all three joints. This enables surgeons to fix the arms in any desired position. The wrist joint holds a wide range of retractors depending on the needs of the specific operation.
All Octopus retractor holders come with the Octopus 3D/Swinger STANDARD as standard but are also available with other 3D/Swinger versions, JUMBO joints* or a folding 22" arm**.
