Enhancement of Electro Surgery System

We incorporated bi polar probe device connectivity to an existing electrosurgical generator without affecting the mono polar probe function.

Enhancement of Electro Surgery System (Class II Device)

 

Scope:

The scope of this project was to incorporate bipolar probe device connectivity to existing electro-surgical generator without affecting the mono-polar probe function. The customer also wanted to develop attractive and user friendly UI screens with additional features.

 

Approach:

The engineering team at QuEST Global modified the DSP firmware to support bipolar devices, used Freescale’s CodeWarrior platform, modified the UI to support bipolar procedure setting screens, used REACH’s SLCD5 for HMI, and conducted FMEA analysis/normal mode & failure mode testing.

 

Benefit:

The customer was able to launch a new product in market with enhanced features.
