Latest software introduces new capability and expands use to additional procedures

“This product demonstrates our commitment to working with leading
companies in the endoscope industry to deliver economical healthcare
The ForceTriad is a multifunctional, software-based energy platform, available worldwide, that uses TissueFect sensing technology to monitor changes in tissue impedance 3,333 times per second and adjusts energy output accordingly to deliver the appropriate amount of energy for the desired tissue effect. With the new software application, the ForceTriad energy platform has a wide range of initiation and power options, all on one familiar user interface. These multi-use capabilities offer additional value to healthcare facilities by providing the ability to use the ForceTriad energy platform in a broader range of surgical procedures and may negate the need to purchase additional hardware equipment.
System upgrades are available for all new and existing ForceTriad
generators using Covidien’s secure, internet-based Valleylab Exchange
software update system. The new capability is also compatible with
bipolar resectoscopes produced by
