BiPAD®  (BiPolar Activation Device) is a  sterile cord that connects bipolar forceps to the electrocautery generator while providing a hand switch that can replace or supplement the foot pedal.

The BiPAD® Bipolar Cord is compatible with most standard 2-prong forceps and most electrocautery generators.
