Olympus introduces the world’s first and only Monopolar, Disposable Tonsil Adenoid Debrider (DTAD). DTAD includes three industry firsts in one device combining monopolar energy, a battery-powered debrider, and a malleable shaver blade that can be set at 40 degrees for adenoids, 15 degrees for tonsils, or anywhere in between. Using proprietary FLEXBLADE Technology, DTAD’s malleable shaver blade is designed to provide surgeons with optimum access to adenoid and tonsil anatomy in a singular device without requiring the exchange of blade parts or use of tools by surgeons during a procedure. DTAD is also the world’s only battery-powered debrider, making it easy to set up and easy to use without any additional capital investment in a console or other equipment. As a battery-powered device that also does not require irrigation or a dedicated console, DTAD makes faster setup time possible through “plug and play” implementation. In addition, distal suction allows the shaver blade to be used as a suction device for blood and fluid leading to better visualization of the surgical site.
