stepGUIDE

With its logical and intuitive interface, the VIO 3 is designed to ensure optimal userfriendliness 1. The size of the touchscreen display alone speaks for itself: from the operating field, the surgeon always has a clear view of all control elements. As your stepGUIDE, VIO 3 provides guidance by suggesting experienced starting settings used in various clinical applications. This results in less setting adjustment or modifications.

TISSUE EFFECTS
VIO 3 responds to parameter changes in the tissue immediately regardless of the electrode shape or incision technique

The new VIO® 3 modes

preciseSECT

Low-smoke exposure

Dynamic adjustment of the modulation frequency makes this new mode ideally suited for exposing structures. preciseSECT facilitates rapid and effective coagulation with limited tissue-separating properties, in combination with less development of smoke and carbonization2.

Disciplines: general / visceral surgery, gynecology, urology

thermoSEAL

Rapid vessel sealing

With the new AUTOSTART, thermoSEAL is twice as fast as the BiClamp mode3. And this mode permanently measures the tissue parameters while sparing lateral tissue. This makes thermoSEAL ideal for sealing tissue bundles and vessels up to 7 mm using our instruments as well as for coagulating bleedings extremely efficiently.

Disciplines: general / visceral surgery, gynecology, urology

highCUT bipolar

Bipolar resection

This new mode has been optimized for bipolar resection in a saline solution. The power peak system (PPS) enables rapid incision. The stable plasma facilitates rapid cutting5.

Instruments: bipolar resectoscopes

softCOAG

Accelerated coagulation

Now with QuickStart5: in the case of bipolar and monopolar softCOAG, a short pulse of energy on contact with tissue results in accelerated coagulation.

Application: coagulation for laparoscopic procedures

All APC modes are integrated into the VIO® 3

pulsedAPC® and forcedAPC are performed using an even finer, 100-increment effect setting for preciselyadjustable devitalization. The preciseAPC® mode is used for hemostasis, particularly in the low-energy range and for sensitive structures to facilitate coagulation with minimal penetration.
