SWING 15, diode laser 15 W, 1470 nm

In response to the emerging need for medical diode lasers dedicated for endoscopic, laparoscopic and robotic surgery, METRUM CRYOFLEX has introduced ingenious solution for more effective and safer procedures – Diode laser SWING – 1.5 μm.

Biophysical characterisitics

Diode laser 1.5 μm is a perfect choice for minimally invasive procedures because of possibility to use different types of optical fibers: 400, 600 um. SWING 15 is indicated for all surgical applications requiring vaporization, incision, excision, ablation, cutting, haemostasis and coagulation of soft tissues. The 1.5 μm laser light beam has suitable low melanin and hemoglobin absorption for skin penetration and respectively high water and fat absorption for selective photothermolysis. The wave of the 1.5 μm laser is absorbed by cellular water 40 times better than the wave of 810/980 nm laser and 80 times better than the wave of Nd: YAG 1064 nm laser. The higher efficacy of the 1470 μm diode laser system enables to reduce energy emission with comparable clinical results to high power lasers of different  wavelengths.

Touch screen panel for easier work

The SWING 15 diode laser is controlled from very high definition touch screen with excellent colour quality and a wide field of view, all this to provide the operator with ease of use. Individual user settings can be saved in the device, allowing quick and easy selection of treatment parameters.

The laser software allows for the energy emission in continuous wave (CW) mode, where the operator, based on the ultrasound mage (on-line), retracts the optical fibre in reaction to the visible response of the vein to the emission of energy.

The device software includes a mode of operation (Phlebology) enabling control of the vein ablation process by audibly informing the operator about delivering a programmed (or pre-set) dose of energy (J/cm) to the vein, thus determining the rate of optical fibre retraction from the treated vessel (sec/cm). After generating the desired energy dose, the laser automatically signals the optical fibre relocation time. The operator using this functionality can fully concentrate on tracking the ultrasound image without the need to control the laser operation.

The use of additional equipment such as “optical fibre retractor” is unnecessary, which reduces costs and also increases the quality and safety of the procedure.

SWING 15 laser gives you possibility to change the layout colour. Depends on situation, lighting conditions you can choose white or black interface.
