THUNDERBEAT Type S
Next Generation of Safety and Speed

THUNDERBEAT Type S with Intelligent Tissue Monitoring (ITM)

THUNDERBEAT Type S with Intelligent Tissue Monitoring (ITM) offers precise dissection close to vital structures thanks to minimal thermal spread and an accurately targeted application of energy to the tissue.2 ITM is the world´s first and only safety assist system for ultrasonic-driven technologies. The energy output will automatically be stopped when the tissue transection is complete. This leads to a decrease in the residual probe temperature by 26.9%, which consequently reduces the risk of accidental tissue damage.3 The result is a safer and more streamlined operation.

Benefits

Primary Hemostasis and Secure 7 mm Vessel Sealing

image

Using the combined energy types of the THUNDERBEAT SEAL & CUT mode simultaneously allows for safe coagulation and fast tissue transection. Fewer vessel-ligation steps are required due to the ability of precoagulation as well as due to the secure cutting and sealing of 7 mm vessels.1

Secondary Hemostasis

The THUNDERBEAT SEAL mode without simultaneous cutting allows for:

  • Immediate sealing of secondary bleeders,
  • Control of oozing bleeding by spot coagulation,
  • Pre-sealing of vessels through the precise application of advanced bipolar energy.

Superior Dissection with Optimal Temperature Control

The precision of ultrasonic technology enables accurate preparation of the correct anatomic layers with the protection of vital structures. THUNDERBEAT allows for sharp and blunt tissue dissection even in hard-to-reach places, such as deep pelvic areas. This is achieved through the wide reach of the tip, the high tip-opening force, and the slim tip design to enter planes most accurately.

Fastest-in-Class Tissue Cutting

The unique hybrid technology causes a synergy effect that leads to unprecedented fast tissue transection. This fast performance with less interrupting instrument exchanges leads to a reduced operating time and allows surgeons to concentrate more on surgery over the whole length of the procedure.

All-in-One Versatility

In addition to the benefits of the unique hybrid technology, the patented tip and ergonomic handle design make THUNDERBEAT a true multifunctional instrument for laparoscopic and open surgery:

  • Enhanced atraumatic tissue grasping and uniform tissue compression due to the unique wiper-jaw technology,
  • High tip-opening forces facilitate blunt tissue dissection and manipulation
  • Fast and reliable hemostasis even under challenging conditions,
  • Reduced mist generation for improved visibility due to proprietary tip design.

How Intelligent Tissue Monitoring Works

1. Detection of sudden pressure change on probe

2. Transmission of the information to the generator

3. Immediate stop of energy supply with audible feedback

4. Start of cooling phase

  • Reduced blood loss and optimal visibility on anatomic structures by superior primary and secondary hemostasis through advanced bipolar technology.
  • The precision of ultrasonic technology enables accurate preparation of the correct anatomic layers with the protection of vital structures.
  • The fast tissue transection with less interrupting instrument exchanges leads to a reduced operating time and allows surgeons to concentrate more on surgery over the whole length of the procedure.
  • The resulting potential saving of material and time makes THUNDERBEAT one of the most efficient advanced energy instruments on the market.4
