What are Kelly tweezers?
Kelly forceps, also called mosquito forceps, is a device used to grasp small objects. They are commonly used in the medical field both for grasping objects that are too large for the fingers to grasp and for holding a single object so that the hands are free to do other things. A common example of its use is during surgery, where forceps can be used to hold tissue and free the surgeon's hands.
Most Kelly pliers are made from high quality steel. Tweezers are often soaked in very hot water, cleaned with chemicals and reused several times. This requires the materials used to make them to be durable and long-lasting. Some lower grade metals may be used on occasions when forceps will be used for non-surgical purposes. There may also be Kelly clips made of plastic designed for single use.
The medical profession is the only field in which the term forceps is commonly used. Similar devices are used in everyday life all the time and are known as tweezers, pliers, tweezers, tweezers or clips. Unlike scissors, pliers are never referred to as a "pair of" and the singular and plural forms of the word are the same.
Kelly forceps closely resemble scissors in design. Two handles are used to create a lever action, but instead of blades, there is a blunt grip. The handle usually has several grooves, and the entire device has a mechanism that allows it to effectively lock and hold tissue and blood vessels during routine procedures and surgeries.
There are two main types of Kelly forceps, the second one is often referred to as mosquito forceps. These are a little more delicate than the original model because they usually have smaller tips. This makes them better able to grab small tissues, such as vessels. A similar device, though not technically defined within this category, the Carmalt, is generally heavier and has longer jaws than the standard Kelly pliers.
Name Kelly tweezers comes from the original manufacturer's name. Currently, there are several manufacturers with them in production today, and several new features can be added to improve the convenience of their use. This can include things like double-locking hinges, high-quality steel, and a firmer grip to improve performance.
