Doctors performing operations have little room for error or downtime as the processor requires quick decision-making, executed performance and the quick swapping of surgical instruments. To help streamline the process, a design team put together the DTool that cleverly combines multiple surgical tools into one allowing doctors to do more with the same instrument and, simultaneously, avoid wasting time on changing utensils.

The DTool is designed for laparoscopy surgeries that offer minimal risk to the patient and tend to be small operations. The multifaceted DTool is a three-pronged serrated instrument that allows doctors to grip and cut the flesh simultaneously so they can perform both actions without having to switch tools. As a result, this allows users to spend more time working.
