Fully integrated bipolar & ultrasonic technology

THUNDERBEAT is the world's FIRST integrated hand instrument that delivers the benefits of both advanced bipolar and ultrasonic energy in a single device. This unique integration of energy modalities combines proven safety of secure haemostasis from advanced bipolar energy with the speed and precision of ultrasonic dissection.

THUNDERBEAT features two handle styles and four working lengths to meet a variety of surgeons’ procedural preferences for both laparoscopic and open surgery.

Key benefits

Unprecedented Versatility

- Reliable 7 mm vessel sealing & cutting

Revolutionary Jaw Design

THUNDERBEAT devices feature a patented "Centre-Pivot" jaw design that evenly distributes closing pressures independent of tissue thickness or type, producing consistently superior vessel seals plus higher grasping and dissecting forces.

Olympus Surgical Tissue Management System

THUNDERBEAT's associated Surgical Tissue Management System generators also support Olympus’ Resection in Saline system for gynaecology and urology, as well as conventional bipolar and monopolar energy.
A truly universal energy platform for the operating theatre.
