Hand Fatigue in Histology?
I wanted to write an e-mail to tell all of my fellow histotechs about Surgipaths new ergonomicaly correct forcepts. Over the past year my hands have started cramping up in the morning while embedding. I would stop & take off my gloves to stretch them & give them a good rub down after a while but still 10 to 15 minutes later they would start again. Also in the evenings at home my hands would have a dull ache. I had been wondering if it was the forcepts I was using or something else causing this cramping & pain. I wondered if there were any better forcepts out there besides the ones I already had. My Surgipath rep., Steven Burghold came by one day and showed me these great new forcepts. So I ordered a couple of them hoping that this would stop the cramping.
I've honestly have had no hand fatigue problems since I've been using the forcepts (1 year)they are great and I recommend them to everyone.
Thanks & Take Care,
