Adson Forceps

Forceps are handheld instruments that are used for grasping and holding different items. They are used when fingers are too large to hold small objects, or when several objects are required to be held at one time while the hands are used to perform a task. An Adson forcep, also referred to as a thumb forcep, has a fine tip and  comes with or without teeth. Robbins Instruments has a wide variety of Adson forceps to choose from.
