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™ 26 cm device 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™ 26 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.
