Medical Scissors come in a great variety of sizes, shapes, and uses. They are useful for everything from cutting gauze and tape using bandage scissors to performing surgery using surgical scissors. Various types of scissors are used by doctors and nurses alike in hospitals and clinics. They are an essential tool for a huge variety of purposes. A pair of curved scissors, dressing scissors or first aid scissors is a great idea to have for any first aid kit. Suture scissors enable a doctor or nurse to cut away excess suture material after suturing or when removing the sutures completely.
Among other scissors we carry are nursing scissors, iris scissors, curved medical scissors, kinesiology tape scissors, ostomy scissors, and a variety of other operating scissors. You may not have heard of some of these, such as kinesiology tape scissors. These are used for cutting kinesiology tape scissors, as one might have guessed. Kinesiology tape is used for treating certain athletic injuries as well as preventing injury. The tape has special properties which is why there are scissors developed just for it. Curved medical scissors are useful for cutting upwards underneath something instead of accidentally cutting too deep or more than one layer at once. Iris Scissors were initially developed for opthamlmic (eye) surgery. They are very small and have a very sharp tip because eye surgery is a very delicate and precise process.
