Invuity PhotonBlade combines three surgical needs in one tool: cutting, coagulation and illumination. The proprietary cutting blade delivers bleeding control and less scarring, improving healing. The advanced illumination allows the surgeon to work more quickly and safely. PhotonBlade is an affordable, versatile medical tool, that works in any operating environment.
The proprietary electrosurgery blade design delivers improved precision cutting during dissection and hemostasis during bleeding control. The coated blade is 99% insulated from electric shocks, which is new in the industry and is cleaned easily by swiping through the slot in holster.
PhotonBlade features bright, expansive illumination that shines directly into the surgical area as its places in the tip of the instrument.
The proprietary optics system transfers and spreads the light from the concealed LED, keeping any heat away from contact with the patient or surgeon.
While traditional overhead lights or headlamps cast shadows into the surgical area, the PhotonBlade provides light where the surgeon needs it most: deep into surgical cavities. This clarity allows the surgeon to work more quickly and safely, decreasing costs from surgery time or complications.
PhotonBlade was designed as a universally ergonomic device. The design is based on a wide range of surgeon hand sizes, as well as the various ways that surgeons hold electrosurgical probes.
The soft, ovoid cross-section and long taper fits comfortably in the hand and allows precise control and easy manipulation.
The buttons are spaced for use with surgical gloves, and allow a positive tactile response during engagement. The white illumination button is set back from the other buttons – it is a “click/on, click/off” button – to separate it from the blue and yellow “cut and coagulate” buttons.
The simple twist lock in the front of the device allows the shaft to be extended and retracted to the surgeons desired length. The extendable shaft allows the surgeon to reach into tight cavities with increased visibility not possible before.
PhotonBlade provide surgeons with three essential tools in one: cutting, coagulation and illumination.
Prior to PhotonBlade you would have to purchase expensive and separate electrosurgical and illumination systems to achieve the same result. Relative to these systems, PhotonBlade is at considerably lower price point.
For ease of adoption among surgeons with existing generators, PhotonBlade plugs into any electrosurgical system.
In remote locations, third world countries or field operations, PhotonBlade can be plugged into a normal wall outlet, resulting in a flexible and affordable surgical tool that works in any environment, anywhere in the world.
The PhotonBlade is reusable and because it provide surgeons with three essential tools in one (cutting, coagulation and illumination) it is more economical to use and uses less capital investment equipment. Prior to PhotonBlade you would have to purchase expensive and separate electrosurgical and illumination systems to achieve the same result.
