Overview

Energy Whenever and Wherever You Want It

The Sonicision™ system is the industry’s first cordless, ultrasonic dissection system offering the widest portfolio and ease of standardization.

The Sonicision™ 13 cm device is the shortest ultrasonic pistol grip device available, optimized for your procedure. It allows for improved freedom of movement in the operating room through the innovation of cordless technology. The streamlined design features a quick and simple set up that increases OR efficiency.

The Sonicision™ 13 cm device is designed to accommodate a variety of open procedures in the following areas: 

  • Colorectal
  • Gynecology
  • Pediatrics
  • Thoracic
  • Urology
  • General
  • Plastics
  • Orthopedic structures (such as spine and joint space)

Freedom of Movement in the Operating Room

The revolutionary design of the Sonicision™ cordless ultrasonic dissection device gives surgeons freedom of movement in the OR – eliminating the frustration of managing cords on a sterile field, while allowing for rapid dissection of tissue and security of hemostasis.

In addition, the intuitive dual-mode energy activation control offers minimum and maximum power modes within one button for easy transition between energy modes, further enhancing surgeon focus on the patient.

The reusable hand-held generator working in concert with the reusable battery produces ultrasonic energy that delivers a variety of tissue effects. The ability to take the sophistication of a generator and shrink it down to easily fit in the palm of your hand is real innovation that frees the surgeon from the need to connect the device to a bulky generator outside of the surgical field.
