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.

It allows for improved freedom of movement in the operating room through the innovation of cordless technology.([FOOTNOTE=Based on internal report #R0014853 rev A. Usability validation report. April 6, 8-9, 20-21, 26 2010 and May 4-6, 2010.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])

The Sonicision™ system is designed to accommodate a variety of open and laparoscopic procedures in the following areas:

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

Technology

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.1,2

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.1

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.
