Marrowtap is a redesign of the bone marrow examination instrument that aims to achieve a safer and more efficient procedure. The introduction of a forceps needle and flesh guide serve to provide surgeons with better confidence in conducting the procedure. The forceps needle is able to grasp and remove the marrow sample before the main body of the instrument is removed from the patient, providing visual assurance and better error recovery in the procedure. The flesh guide ensures better stability in inserting the needle into the patient by serving as an anchor point to guide the drilling motion.
