First of all, today’s instruments are made from new materials, like improved steel alloys and composites. These materials increase the strength, stiffness, and durability of the instruments while reducing their weight. New types of plastics and polymers with enhanced shape retention properties can withstand high heat and radiation, allowing for effective device sterilization.
Second, new construction designs allow for advanced capabilities, such as the use of replaceable and renewable parts and inserts. At the same time, the instruments are more versatile and more simply designed for increased safety and reliability. With the trend moving towards minimally invasive procedures (such as endoscopic and robot-controlled surgeries), high-precision miniature devices are being created using computer-assisted design, modeling, and simulation.
Last but not least, the development of new cost-effective manufacturing technologies is being driven by rising demand. This helps increase the production output without compromising on the product quality.
