Ethicon Endo-Surgery Introduces Innovative New Generator to Help Simplify Use of Advanced Energy Technology in the OR
Date:6/15/2011

CINCINNATI, June 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- In an effort to help simplify the OR, Ethicon Endo-Surgery, Inc. (EES) today announces U.S. FDA 510(k) clearance and the launch of the first ever Advanced Energy Generator made to power both ultrasonic and advanced bipolar technologies and designed for easy set set-up and use in the operating room.

"The operating theatre is a fast-paced and sometimes stressful place," says Judith Butt, Theatre Nurse, Prince Charles Hospital, Wales, UK (the EES Generator launched earlier this year in the UK). "We need technologies that are intuitive to use so we can devote more of our time to the patient's needs."

The new EES Generator has several innovative features that enable the delivery of advanced energy technology and meet the need to simplify the OR including:

  • One unit that powers all current and next generation HARMONIC® ultrasonic and ENSEAL® advanced bipolar devices. This includes the newly launched ENSEAL® G2 Super Jaw technology designed to offer surgeons strong, uniform compression while remaining gentle on thick tissue.  
  • Intuitive touch screen technology display that provides user feedback.
  • More compact and light weight than other generators. Its portable design and optional rolling stand make it easy to move in and around the Operating Room.
  • On-screen diagnostics that provide step-by-step animations, allowing the user to quickly set-up and troubleshoot.
  • Upgradable software feature that gives hospital access to the latest EES energy products and upgrades without the need to purchase additional capital equipment.

"We listened to nurses and surgeons from around the world as we designed the new EES Generator," said Brian Noyes, Global Product Director for the EES Generator, "This new generator is a direct result of that feedback: simplifying the OR by freeing up space, providing an intuitive user interface and troubleshooting to give the surgical team more time to focus on the patient rather than operation of the technology."
