Cutting without pressure and traction
The ATMOS® RS 221 enables highly precision cutting without pressure and traction. This results in smooth cuts which heal quickly and are much less painful. Because of lower cell damage, scarring is minimized. Alternating current with high frequency is used to deliberately cut or damage tissue for medical purposes. An Advantage of this method is the simultaneous hemostasis during cutting where the damaged tissue is sealed via the alternating current. Out-of-date is the cauterization method because of the deep burnings caused by inappropriate energy impact. Electrosurgery is widely applicable and includes many different methods like: radiosurgery, high-frequency surgery, cauterization.
ideal frequency of 2.2 MHz - “cold cut”: minimal lateral tissue damage
precise and easy handling
cutting without pressure and traction
less pain and quicker wound healing
enables initial cut
tissue specimen can be analyzed histologically up to the cutting edge
less scar formation
no skin burns due to electrosurgery
Safe hemostasis with bipolar tweezers (e.g. epistaxis).
The neutral electrode is used for monopolar cutting and coagulation.
The rubber reinforced bandage ensures good skin contact and
The ergonomically designed handles guarantee the safe use of the
radiofrequency technology in the operating area. The handles are autoclavable at least 150 times at 134°C, in accordance with DIN 58946.
