TissueFect™ tissue sensing technology has improved on the Valleylab™ FT10 energy platform with closed-loop control at 434,000 data points per second, which is over a 100X more than the ForceTriad™ energy platform.5 This creates a more consistent tissue effect.
Enhanced closed-loop Cut and Coagulation Monopolar modes enable the Valleylab™ FT10 to control power precisely while dissecting through various tissues types.5
The Valleylab™ FT10 energy platform, has optimized vessel sealing performance with LigaSure™ devices. High-speed, closed-loop control continuously monitors the electrical properties of the tissue and utilizes an advance vessel sealing algorithm to apply a proportionate amount of energy based on composition and size of the vessels being sealed. This reduces the need for manual bar settings on the Valleylab™ FT10 generator, making LigaSure™ devices truly a “plug and play” technology.([FOOTNOTE=Based on the Valleylab™ FT10 Users guide: part number 1073652, REV 12/2014],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])
