Tissue varies but your staple lines shouldn’t. That's why the Signia™ stapling system adjusts firing speed based on force feedback when clamped and during firing.3,4,† The result: consistent staple lines — across variable tissue.([FOOTNOTE=Based on internal test report #R2146-173-0, ASA verification testing with slow speed force limit evaluation. 2015.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]),([FOOTNOTE=Based on internal test report #R2146-151-0, Powered stapling firing speed DOE analysis and ASA parameters. 2015.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]),†
Plus, the Signia™ system gives you the precision of fully powered rotation, articulation, and firing([FOOTNOTE=Based on internal test report #RE00024826 rev D, Signia™ stapling system summative usability report. September 2016.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]),§ with one hand.5,§

The Signia™ stapler is compatible with our existing reload portfolio featuring the proven performance of Tri-Staple™ technology. Compared to the Ethicon™* powered stapler with GST technology, that combination delivers:
The Signia™ stapler adapts to tissue variability3,4,† and lets you know — before you fire — with visual and audible feedback from the handle. This is made possible by Adaptive Firing™ technology and real-time feedback.3,4,†
When you clamp on tissue, the Signia™ stapler:
Information about stapling conditions3,4,† — and more consistent staple lines3,4,†
The Signia™ stapler's continuous clamp force measurements — displayed on the handle in real time during a procedure — give you information about stapling conditions.3,4,† Higher clamp force measurements may indicate thicker tissues and more challenging tissue applications.3,4,†
The Signia™ stapler adapts to these changing surgical conditions by appropriately adjusting firing speed based on force measurements. As a result, you get optimized staple formation — with more consistent staple lines.3,4,([FOOTNOTE=Based on internal report #RE00218740, Signia™ stapling adaptive firing technology data calculations and references.
