THE OMNIPULSE Jr.™

The Dependable, Durable,

30 Watt Holmium Laser

from Trimedyne.


 

You asked us for a small Holmium laser for your low-power applications. You wanted it to be portable and compact so it would fit into the smallest cysto suite, operating room or even in your office. But you wanted the reliability and convenient features of the proven OmniPulse MAX™ laser available exclusively from Trimedyne.  And now, Trimedyne, the leader in cost-effective laser technology, has designed the laser you asked for - the OmniPulse Jr.™ 30 Watt Holmium Laser.

  • Delivers 30 watts to tissue - And provides 2.3 Joules per pulse at 12 Hz.
  • Shallow depth of penetration (less than 0.5mm) -  Reduces risk of iatrogenic injury to surrounding tissues.
  • Simple, programmable lasing parameters - Press just one button to instantly obtain your selected settings.
  • Instant on - Minimal warm-up time and footswitch delay. Reliable-Procedure after procedure, this laser won't quit operating until you do, even at full power.
  • Portable - Small footprint, lightweight and designed to be so sturdy and easy to handle it can be transported in most vans and sports utility vehicles.
  • Easy installation  - No special plumbing or wiring is required so it can be quickly moved from one site to another.
  • Adjustable aiming beam - A simple mechanism allows you to control the beam's brightness level for enhanced visualization.

 

Lithotripsy With the OmniPulse Jr.™

  • Fragments stones of any size, color, or composition even cystine and calcium oxalate monohydrate.
  • Compatible with rigid and flexible ureteroscopes.
  • A single Iow-cost fiber can do all that's required to complete the procedure. Compared to other lithotrites, the Holmium laser yields smaller fragments (less than 0.4 mm) which are more likely to pass without a problem. (1)
  • Even difficult to access stones can be treated with our flexible laser fibers. Dependable solid-state design means Iow maintenance costs.
