FMX™ Ferromagnetic Surgical System

The FMX Ferromagnetic Surgical System is an intelligent surgical platform that uses ferromagnetic technology to precisely cut, coagulate, and seal tissue; with a fraction of tissue injury compared to other surgical technologies, and without passing electrical current through the patient. The FMX system is used in numerous surgical sub-specialties including cardiothoracic, head & neck, surgical oncology, and more.

FMX Surgical Instruments and System Components

FMwand

FMwand® Ferromagnetic Dissector

FMwand is a thermal dissection instrument that precisely cuts and coagulates with less tissue injury compared to traditional technologies, without passing electrical current through the patient.

FMsealer Vessel Sealing Shears

FMsealer™ Ferromagnetic Vessel Sealers

FMsealer Vessel Sealing Shears provide surgeons with quick dissection, precise control of thermal effect, and reliable sealing of lymphatics and vessels up to 7mm in diameter in both open and laparoscopic procedures.

FMX G1 Generator

FMX Generator

The FMX Generator intelligently delivers electrical energy to the surgical instruments. The generator features a patented software control algorithm that continuously monitors and adjusts the delivery of energy, ensuring that the optimal amount of heat is delivered to the tissue at all times. The large touchscreen display provides the entire surgical team immediate feedback on power setting levels, and changing settings is as easy as touching the display.

FMX Power Modules

FMX Power Modules

FMX Power Modules connect FMX surgical instruments to the generator and intelligently manage communication between each component within the system. FMX Power Modules are available in both reusable and single-use disposable configurations. The FMX Reusable Power Module (left) can be autoclave resterilized for use in up to 100 procedures, providing a cost-effective option for the hospital. The FMX Disposable Power Module (right) is single-use only and is discarded following each surgical procedure.

How Ferromagnetic Surgical Technology Works

FMX Technology

The active surface of each FMX surgical instrument is plated with a thin ferromagnetic coating. When the instrument is activated, the FMX generator passes high frequency electrical energy through the ferromagnetic coating and back to the generator, creating a rapidly alternating magnetic field within the coating.

FMX Technology

The coating instantly reacts to the alternating magnetic field, producing uniform heat throughout the coated area. When in contact with tissue, this uniform heat precisely cuts, coagulates, and seals with minimal collateral thermal injury. When deactivated, the coating cools quickly.

FMX Technology

FMX surgical instruments are electrically silent; meaning that the electrical energy delivered to each instrument returns to ground through the generator and does not pass through the tissue.

Because heat is generated only in the area plated with the ferromagnetic coating, FMX surgical instruments activate instantly and cool down in seconds. FMX technology provides extremely precise and predictable control of thermal effect and reduces thermal injury to deeper tissue and surrounding structures; while eliminating the passage of potentially dangerous electrical current through the patient.

Using the FMX Ferromagnetic Surgical System

The FMX Ferromagnetic Surgical System combines state-of-the-art surgical technology with unparalleled ease-of-use and simplicity. Prepare the FMX surgical instruments for use by following these simple steps:

1

Plug the FMX Power Module into the front panel of the FMX Generator

2

Snap the power module firmly into the back of the FMX surgical instrument

3

Set the power settings on the generator and the surgical instrument is ready
