Cordless Battery Operated Dermatomes

Wonderfully easy and accurate
Humeca designed two cordless, battery operated dermatomes, a small one, the D42 and a bigger one, the D80.


The D42 is the result of an attempt to design a small and lightweight battery operated dermatome.


The head of the dermatome is 64 mm (2.52") It cuts a graft width of max. 42mm (1.65"), which can be reduced to 36 and 30 mm (1.41 and 1.18")by means of width reducing clamps (other cutting widths are optional). Through the use of lightweight materials, the total weight was limited to 985 grams (35 oz) only, which is quite exceptional for a battery- operated dermatome. The small diameter grip of this dermatome holds a rechargeable 7.4 Volts Li-Ion battery with a capacity of 1200 mAh for approx. 45 minutes non-stop cutting.


The larger D80 dermatome was developed for more general use.


It cuts a width of max. 80 mm (3.15"), which can be reduced to 65, 50 and 35 mm (2.56, 1.97 and 1.38" by means of width reducing clamps. The D80 dermatome has a wider head (104 mm / 4.09") and the larger grip holds a very powerful 2400 mAh Li-Ion battery for more than 75 minutes non-stop cutting. The total weight was limited to 1.115grams. Graft thickness varies from 0.0-1.2 mm (0.000-0.048") and is adjusted by means of an adjusting lever with readings on a thickness scale (in mm and inches). The lever is fixed at positions corresponding with thickness increments of approx. 0.1mm (0.004"). Fixation of the lever prevents accidental change of graft thickness during cutting.
