Hol YAG Laser

Sphinx jr


Sphinx Jr


The Sphinx jr. is the ideal laser for endo¬scopic lithotripsy with rigid and flexible endoscopes.
Adjustment of pulse energy, repetition rate and StoneEffect™ is intuitive: Optimize the laser for unparalleled efficiency in lithotripsy of hard and soft calculi or haemostatic tissue effect. For “Stone Dusting” select highest frequency, low energy and 100% Stone Effect™.

Why Sphinx jr.?
New technology opens new possibilities. Sphinx jr. combines 25 years of Holmium laser experience with latest laser technology, proven Sphinx-quality and innovative design.

Flexible and intuitive
The Sphinx jr. is the ideal laser for endo¬scopic lithotripsy with rigid and flexible endoscopes.
Adjustment of pulse energy, repetition rate and StoneEffect™ is intuitive: Optimize the laser for unparalleled efficiency in lithotripsy of hard and soft calculi or haemostatic tissue effect. For “Stone Dusting” select highest frequency, low energy and 100% StoneEffect™. There is a choice of reus¬able laser fibres (for steam sterilization) and dispos¬able laser fibres for those OR situations where repro¬cessing of fibres economi¬cally is not reasonable.

Powerful and lasting
100% StoneEffect™unmatched pulse peak power of up to 18 kW – best for fragmentation of hard stones.
To attack calculi without the risk of pushing the stone out of sight you may select Single Pulse or a short Burst: Even the first pulse is at full power and will break the stone – in pulsating mode, in burst mode or as a single pulse.

The Sphinx jr. operates continuously without over¬heating, power reduction or cut off to cool down. This laser masters both extensive stone work and continued use in soft tissue surgery. Full laser power is available at any rated mains supply

Double pedal footswitch
The Sphinx jr. is the first Holmium laser with an optional double pedal footswitch. Both pedals allow individually selectable laser parameters like burst mode vs. pulsed operation or high energy single pulse vs. a laser setting for stone dusting.

User-friendly and no noise
The innovative operating concept enables intuitive operation of the Sphinx jr. laser.
Laser settings are controlled via a capacitive touch screen. The bril¬liant 7’’ wide-screen colour display is highly visible even in less favourable viewing angle.

Pulse energy, repetition rate and the StoneEffect™ parameter are intuitively set by touch sliders on bar graphs. The fibre port opens automatically when a fibre connector is connected Up to 60 individual sets of treatment parameters may be stored in memory for future use.
The noise emission of the Sphinx jr. is not noticeable in a standard OR environment – finally, for your relieve.

Economical and ecological
The Sphinx jr. requires a standard power supply. No additional installations are required. Long-live reusable laser fibres reduce clinical waste and cost per application. The durable and service friendly design minimizes costs for maintenance.

Reliability
Benefit from more than 25 year’s experience in devel¬opment and manufacture of Holmium lasers.
