Software Applications

Software Applications:

Ensure your surgeons and staff have the latest ForceTriad™ performance features with ForceTriad™ Bipolar Resection and ForceTriad™ Remote Control add-on software applications.

Bipolar Resection with Saline Software Application

Covidien's new ForceTriad™ Bipolar Resection software application offers surgeons an expanded range of initiation and power options. This new software enhances the ForceTriad™ energy platform’s capabilities with compatible resectoscopes for endoscopically controlled removal or coagulation of tissue using 0.9% NaCl (saline) solution as the irrigation medium during resections of the prostate, transurethral resections of the bladder, and during several gynecologic procedures.

Key Features

  • The ForceTriad™ energy platform with its TissueFect™ sensing technology and closed-loop coag control provides precise energy management for smooth dissection and consistent and controlled hemostatic effect.
  • Healthcare facilities can use the ForceTriad™ platform in a broader range of urologic and gynecologic surgical procedures, avoiding the purchase of additional energy platforms.
  • Any new or existing ForceTriad™ generator can be upgraded with the application. The new capability is compatible with bipolar resectoscopes produced by Karl Storz™* Endoscopy.

Ready to Order the Bipolar Resection with Saline Software Application?

To use the new bipolar resection with saline software application, your ForceTriad™ energy platform must be running software version 3.40 (or greater). Update to the newest version of ForceTriad™ software now.

If you are now running software version 3.40 or higher on your ForceTriad™ energy platform, and are ready to add the bipolar resection with saline software application, please contact your local ForceTriad™ sales or service representative.

Remote Control Software for Integrated OR Systems

The ForceTriad™ Remote Control software application enables communication between a ForceTriad™ energy platform and a third-party remote-control system. Once the application is activated, an energy platform can be integrated into a system of multiple OR hardware components operated from a central location.

Key Benefits

Covidien’s new remote control software application seamlessly connects your ForceTriad™ energy platform to approved* integrated operating room systems.

The ForceTriad™ energy platform is a full-featured radiofrequency energy system that allows surgeons to precisely manage energy and desired tissue effect. This new remote control software application for the ForceTriad enables connectivity to compatible systems.*

Surgeons and staff experience the benefits of a familiar, high-performance energy platform in their integrated operating rooms.

Ready to Order the Remote Control Software Application?

The ForceTriad™ Remote Control software application is available over the Internet using Valleylab™ Exchange software downloaded by your hospital biomed technician. System connectivity is established by your integrated OR representative using the ForceTriad™ energy platform running software version 3.40 or higher. Update to the newest version of ForceTriad™ software now.

To contact your local ForceTriad™ Sales or Service Representative:

*The remote control software application is currently compatible with Karl Storz OR1™* and Olympus ENDOALPHA™* operating room integration systems.
