SurgiFuse® is the core technology developed by BioFuse Medical Technologies. It is an advanced high-frequency electrosurgical system available and incorporates a unique and proprietary way of controlling and delivering energy to and through the target tissue. In studies, SurgiFuse® tissue fusion has been shown to be stronger than mechanical closure, creates a continuous seam in the tissue, and leaves no foreign bodies behind. SurgiFuse® encompasses the proprietary use of low voltages and high currents, optimized specifically for the tissue to be fused. In addition, energy output to the tissue occurs in pulses. These computer-controlled energy pulses create optimal temperatures that unravel large molecules in the tissue and as these molecules cool, they become intertwined and create a fusion.
