THUNDERBEAT

UNIQUE HYBRID TECHNOLOGY

Olympus aims to provide innovative energy solutions delivering surgical safety and instrument versatility for efficient and streamlined operations with optimal patient outcomes. This is why Olympus developed the unique hybrid technology THUNDERBEAT for open and laparoscopic surgery.

THUNDERBEAT is the world’s first and only advanced energy system that delivers two well-established forms of energy to a tissue simultaneously:

  • Ultrasonic energy for superior dissection and fast tissue-cutting capability
  • Advanced bipolar energy for fast and secure hemostasis for vessels up to and including 7 mm in diameter

The combination doubles your energy – and sets new standards in the application of advanced energy in the operating room.

NEXT GENERATION OF SAFETY AND SPEED

With the introduction of the new generation THUNDERBEAT Type S, the unique concept of hybrid energy technology is raised to the next level. With the development of the innovative Type S coating and the revolutionary safety system Intelligent Tissue Monitoring (ITM), Olympus successfully achieved an improvement to the temperature profile of the instrument. This new concept of optimal temperature control enables a targeted and efficient application of energy that enhances the safety and speed of operation.

ADVANCED HEMOSTASIS

Reduced blood loss and optimal visibility on anatomic structures by superior primary and secondary hemostasis through advanced bipolar technology.

SUPERIOR DISSECTION WITH OPTIMAL TEMPERATURE CONTROL

The precision of ultrasonic technology enables accurate preparation of the correct anatomic layers with the protection of vital structures. THUNDERBEAT Type S with Intelligent Tissue Monitoring (ITM) offers precise dissection close to vital structures thanks to minimal thermal spread and an accurately targeted application of energy to the tissue.

HIGH OPERATING SPEED

The fast tissue transection with less interrupting instrument exchanges leads to a reduced operating time and allows surgeons to concentrate more on surgery over the whole length of the procedure.
