Encision Inc., a medical device company owning patented surgical technology that prevents dangerous stray electrosurgical burns in minimally invasive surgery, announced the enhancement of its recently released AEM EndoShield 2 Burn Protection System to interface with a market leading electrosurgical generator.
“As we neared completion on the development of EndoShield 2, a number of our customers contacted us and requested that EndoShield 2 be adapted to work on an upcoming release of a new electrosurgical generator from a market leading company,” Greg Trudel, president and CEO of Encision, said. “We immediately reached out to the company and were pleased with their ready collaboration and offer to lend us a generator to do compatibility testing upon. After completing extensive testing we found that the units were electrically compatible and implemented a change to EndoShield 2 to increase its ease of use with the new generator.
“Our development, operations and regulatory teams worked together to deliver an important product enhancement that ensures optimal patient safety in laparoscopic surgery and compatibility with the latest in electrosurgical generator technology,” he added. “(The EndoShield 2) can be used for a number of surgical procedures without reprocessing. It reduces the cost per use significantly for our customers and eliminates a significant barrier to the adoption of AEM Technology.
“The plug and play design provides greater flexibility than ever for hospitals to perform laparoscopic procedures in any open operating room without the need to move expensive capital from room to room,” Trudel said. “EndoShield 2 is the cornerstone of our growth going forward.”
Encision Inc. designs and markets high performance surgical instrumentation that deliver advances in patient safety with AEM technology, surgical performance, and value to hospitals across a broad range of minimally invasive surgical procedures.
