The THUNDERBEAT Difference

The revolutionary THUNDERBEAT platform is the WORLD's ONLY integration of Ultrasonic and advanced bipolar energies delivered through a single multi-functional instrument, allowing a surgeon to simultaneously seal and cut vessels up to and including 7 mm in size with minimal thermal spread. The patented jaw design provides precise, controlled dissection and always available advanced bipolar coagulation without sacrificing grasping ability.

Surgeons no longer need to choose between rapid dissection and reliable hemostasis when selecting an advanced energy device.

Unprecedented Versatility

  • Reliable 7 mm vessel sealing & cutting
  • Very precise dissection with unique, fine jaws design
  • Fastest-in-class cutting of any advanced energy device
  • Minimal thermal spread
  • Improved visibility with reduced mist generation
  • Significant time savings by minimized need to exchange for other instrument
  • Manage secondary bleedings by bipolar mode only

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.
