Lake Region Medical provides extraordinary efficiency and quality as a manufacturer of energy-based devices and instruments for a variety of applications.
A harmonic scalpel uses ultrasonic energy to dissect soft tissue and simultaneously coagulate blood at the incision. The hand piece (ultrasonic transducer) excites the resonant wave guide which transmits the ultrasonic energy to the scalpel blade. This method eliminates stray arcing and current effects that can occur with high frequency electric surgery methods. Lake Region manufactures harmonic scalpels in high speed machining centers using Titanium alloy bar, pre-qualified for acoustic resonant response and tuned using a proprietary technique.
Advanced Bipolar Energy Delivery Devices
