What does a Hand Suture Winder do?

Winds single or multiple lengths of surgical catgut onto fiber suture reel: Pulls out holding flaps on reel, inserts end of strand under one flap, and places reel on power-driven wheel. Presses pedal to actuate wheel and guides strand under holding flaps as wheel spins to wind precut lengths or counts wheel revolutions to measure lengths. Turns reels by hand when winding numerous strands. Cuts catgut from spool, using scissors. Inserts completed reels in plastic envelopes for subsequent sterilization, or into glass tubes for future use.
