Abstract: The paper explains a clip mechanism handle to use for surgical procedures which uses metal clips via a mechanism to transmit the motion from the handle to the jaw at one end which helps inserting the metal clip to patient’s vessel. With development in technology; this handle does not operate on a spring mechanism hence it operates in steps, instead of direct and quick movement of arms handle. This also reduces the force required to operate the handle and is better controlled. The rubber grip and ergonomics of the component are carefully selected keeping the operation and use in mind. The delivery mechanism also gets changed than the normal used mechanisms. With the inward movement of the handles, the jaw is moved in inward direction and vice versa. After the jaw is opened, the metal clip is pushed into the tissue for binding the tissues. This ends the operation of the equipment. [1, 2, 4, 5]
