The Olympus Universal Surgical Energy Generator (EPF-1) :
Eliminates the need for multiple generator platforms in the hospital —streamlining workflow and limiting training requirements for staff by supporting all the common forms of energy that are used in the OR today.
The EPF-1 system supports cutting edge technology designed for specific procedural needs while also meeting hospital requirements for standardization. Allows surgeons and staff to access the following energy modalities with one generator system:
- Integrated Energy (THUNDERBEAT)
- Ultrasonic Energy (SONICBEAT)
- Advanced Bipolar (PK TECHNOLOGY)
- Standard Bipolar
- Standard Monopolar
An integrated advanced energy product family designed to fulfill more surgical needs with a multifunctional instrument by combining ultrasonic and advanced bipolar energy into a single device.
The THUNDERBEAT system can contribute to an uninterrupted operative flow and potentially reduce OR time/cost:
- Replaces dissector, grasper, other energy devices, sutures and vascular clips for reduced instrument usage and instrument exchange
- Provides Best-In-Class tissue cutting and rapid 7mm vessel sealing
- Meets needs for clinical situations that demand greater performance and value compared to conventional advanced energy devices
An advanced energy product family that provides multifunctional devices that combine ultrasonic energy with Olympus’ Revolutionary Jaw design at an economically attractive value.
The SONICBEAT system provides solutions for hospitals deciding on a surgical energy device that provides reliable performance every time, while still balancing the economic challenges in today’s healthcare environment:
- Allows for optimized grasping throughout the jaw (higher tip grasping forces)
- Delivers precise fine and blunt dissection utilizing the refined tip
- Provides reliable and consistent 5mm vessel sealing performance
An advanced energy product family that provides impedance-controlled advanced bipolar energy system that is designed specifically to enhance performance and versatility in laparoscopic GYN procedures.
The PK TECHNOLOGY system enables surgeons to select the best technology option for specific procedural needs on our universal generator for maximal ease of use and streamlined workflow:
- Delivers uniquely-designed instruments for GYN procedures
- Provides surgeons with options that offer precision and control
- Meets all clinical needs for dissection, coagulation and transection/resection
