Why the need for Lotus?

All other ultrasonic scalpels work using longitudinal movement – this results in the most efficient energy being lost out of the distal tip.

Longitudinal scalpel

Whilst stray energy is lost out of the distal tip, only weak frictional energy is created between the jaws.

 

Torsional scalpel (Lotus)

Using torsional ultrasound, Lotus directs the powerful energy towards the target tissue – where the surgeon needs it. This rapid energy transfer makes Lotus faster, safer and easier to use.

 

Faster, safer cutting

With powerful energy directed to where it is needed, the tissue proteins rapidly denature and form a seal. As the jaw closes, the central blade cuts through the tissue, resulting in fast, haemostatic transection.

Grasp – Seal – Cut

With powerful energy directed to where it is needed, the tissue proteins rapidly denature and form a strong seal. As the jaw closes, the central blade cuts through the tissue, resulting in fast, haemostatic transection.
