joimax has announced the global launch of its new generation of Shrill Shaver Drill System — a device which is used to remove soft tissue and bone on the spine.
This latest iteration has been retooled to provide better user control says joimax. The new design comprises a glass touch panel for “easy handling and cleaning”, and features expanded benefits including: a new Shrill console that provides up to 10,000-rpm with an “essential amount of torque for controlled and effective ablation of tissue”, an adjustable “acceleration ramp” which settings can be programmed based on individual needs, new diamond blades, and reworked bone resectors and barrel cutters.
Plus, the device is equipped with handle and blade detection; it can automatically detect connected hand pieces and adjust them to the corresponding parameters.
Christoph Hofstetter, associate professor in the Department of Neurological Surgery at the University of Washington, USA, said: “The Shrill is the best endoscopic bone drill system on the market. The high speed, in combination with the coarse diamond blades, has significantly reduced the time required for endoscopic laminectomy.”
joimax® CEO and founder, Wolfgang Ries, added: “joimax will continue to bring innovative products to market. On the basis of this technology, we are developing a unique disc preparation tool that can be used for lumbar interbody fusion application, slated for release later this year.
“This will enable faster and more efficient preparation of the disc space for cage insertion for fusion procedures, and round out the whole product offering.”
