CURIS RADIOFREQUENCY GENERATOR
The CURIS® 4 MHz radiofrequency generator relies on innovative P3 technology with an increased frequency (4.0 MHz) and automatic power adjustment (AutoRF), minimizing damage to surrounding cells. It is gentle to the tissue and effective for coagulation, submucosal shrinkage, and cutting. Scientific studies have shown that tissue trauma may be reduced by using CURIS 4 MHz radiofrequency technology.*1
- Minimal tissue damage, automatic power adjustment mode depending on the tissue characteristics (AutoRF)
- The device may be used both for cutting and coagulation in monopolar and bipolar modes
The higher the frequency, the less the resistance of biological tissue to electromagnetic fields – up to the point where cell membranes are capacitively coupled. The CURIS® 4 MHz radiofrequency generator creates this effect in all monopolar and bipolar modes. When using conventional electrosurgical units, the electromagnetic field mainly concentrates between the cells and only heats the outer layer. However, with the CURIS® 4 MHz radiofrequency generator cell membranes are conductive, and energy is absorbed evenly inside the cells. As a result, energy is administered gently and in a highly focused fashion. Precise monopolar cuts are possible while lateral heat damage is kept to a minimum.
Precision thanks to AutoRF™
A smart impedance control function that will tailor the power output of the CURIS® 4 MHz radiofrequency generator to the tissue condition. Whether it is cutting through different tissue types (such as mucosa, muscle, fat or connective tissue) or altering tissue conditions during coagulation, the AutoRF™ feature will deliver adapted power output as required by the different tissue impedance. When dissecting different tissue types in one cut (skin, fat, muscles), the unit has to process and respond to the AutoRF™ data in a flash. For this reason, the CURIS® 4 MHz radiofrequency generator has two microprocessors for additional safety and speed. p3™ Technology
Denotes pulse power, active in all coagulation modes of the CURIS® 4 MHz radio frequency generator. Radiofrequency energy is delivered in about 50 small packages per second. Due to the pulsed power output, there are short breaks between the individual packages, giving the tissue enough time to absorb the energy. Highly focused yet gentle coagulation with minimal thermal damage is possible.
