English term or phrase: driver
Dit komt uit een brochure over instrumenten voor tandartsen, meer bepaald instrumenten voor het aanbrengen van implantaten. De zin luidt: "The XXX Manual Dental Implant Driver Torque Wrench is a .... non-adjustable, manual, box-type torque wrench."
"Torque wrench" heb ik vertaald als "momentsleutel", maar wat wordt met die "driver" bedoeld? En wat is de Nederlandse term?

Alvast hartelijk voor jullie hulp!

Explanation:
I've asked my son (who is a dentist) and his opinion is that the driver is a piece of window dressing and unnecessary.

I've talked to my son and this is basically a 'screwdriver' for use manually to insert the implant into the prepared bone. This avoids the use of mechanical handpieces that then have a torque limiter. There is no need to buy the mechanical one then.
The torque for drilling into the bone is the same as driving in the implant.

Asker: Verder in de tekst staat: "The XXX is designed to work with all 4.0mm, square dental implant drivers." Kun je je zoon nog even raadplegen? Alvast dank!
