Laproscopic, Expandable Retractor - Laproscopic Surgery Made Easier


  • The first 3D tissue retractor
  • Atraumatic, large volume tissue retraction
  • Maximized visualization while reducing tissue trauma
  • Reduced OR time for enhanced cost savings

 The A-Lapsystem utilizes a unique, hand-like retractor designed to support the internal organs surrounding the operative site. The result? An effective, efficient laparoscopic retracting system that provides maximum exposure, reduced tissue trauma and reduced OR time for enhanced patient outcomes and cost savings. 


The EZaxess™ flexible port (included in set) is placed and used to facilitate introduction of curved laproscopic instruments with minimal harm to the fascia.


The A-Lap™ device is inserted through the port in a contracted form. NoteL A-Lap™ may be inserted direction through a skin incision and is compatible with newer flexible Single Port Access ports.


The A-Lap™ expands and allow for easy manipulation and retractions of soft tissue. Expansion may be controlled by the surgeon utilizing a graspers-like locking mechanism opening to 26 different positions. Maximum volume: 12cm x 12cm.


The A-Lap™ retracts tissue for maximum exposure of the operative site.
