Single Energy Platform
for different surgical teams
For hospitals to offer high-level services, they must integrate the latest knowledge and technologies. Additionally physicians and surgeons continuously strive for a better patient outcome. To remain competitive under these conditions, hospitals must also keep expenditure low. Olympus supports hospitals and surgeons in this balancing act.
Olympus is committed to developing technologies that clearly enable cost reduction through increased intraoperative flexibility, safer and better workflows, and optimized procedures.
Olympus offers a complete energy solution product portfolio that can meet almost every surgical need by using just one energy system for all surgical teams.
Previously, most hospitals had to provide more than just one surgical energy platform with different instruments for different procedures in each operating room. Using a combination of several stand-alone systems was not only ineffective and expensive. In many cases, it was a compromise but not the best solution possible.
Today with THUNDERBEAT, Olympus offers a smart surgical energy system that covers different medical specialties and technologies for open, laparoscopic, and endoscopic surgeries. One single generator platform facilitates the combination of all common kinds of energy, such as advanced bipolar and ultrasonic energy.
This system gives surgeons across multiple fields more versatility in many electrosurgical procedures and for almost all surgical energy needs. It enables a better handling and leads to smoother and more efficient workflows. It also helps to improve patient outcomes.
A key part of Olympus’s surgical energy system is THUNDERBEAT:
"We have started a study to assess the possible advantages of THUNDERBEAT with objective measurements. From the data, we can state that THUNDERBEAT is safe and fast, which gives us an advantage in the OR with a decrease in time of at least 15%. The time savings are the result of dependable coagulating and quick cutting action through any tissue without having to change instruments – even for blunt dissection and grasping."
Olympus has developed a calculation model to highlight which savings can be realized by using the THUNDERBEAT system. Together with hospital management, we will support the analysis of savings that result from conducting the hospital’s procedures with THUNDERBEAT. This will provide you with a definitive figure showing the costs saved compared to the current system, taking purchase costs into account.
