Product Overview

Surgical Incision Device


Hemostatix Thermal Scalpel
Cold Scalpel
Monopolar Electrosurgery-Cut
Monopolar Electrosurgery-Coag
Ultrasonic Incision
Ferromagnetically Heated Loop
Pulsed Monopolar Electrosurgery
Provides scalpel tactile feedback sufficient to distinguish tissue types
Provides precise tissue incision equivalent to cold scalpel
Incises with low-drag in all tissue types
Reduces operating time to both cut and coagulate tissue
Eliminates need to adjust tip-to-tissue air gap distance during incision
Allows surgeon to set scalpel maximum temperature
Minimizes collateral thermal damage to nearby vital structures
Seals most blood vessels as they are incised providing dry field
Enables application of tamponade to seal larger vessels prior to incision
Minimizes depth of necrosis at surface of incision
Eliminates possibility of electrical tissue stimulation
Eliminates possibility of dispersing airborne, viable tumor cells and virions
Avoids interference with Pacemakers, Implantable Defibrillators, Cochlear implants
Eliminates need for smoke evacuation
Eliminates grounding pad
Avoids electrical current flow is tissue, unwanted collateral electrical tissue injury
