Radiofrequency Probes



Flexible tips and different tip configurations facilitate hip joint access

Smith & Nephew DYONICS EFLEX Radiofrequency Probes can deflect up to 100°, enabling access into areas of the hip joint that are difficult to reach with conventional rigid probes.

Tip deflection is actuated by an easy-to-pull trigger system, with an ergonomically designed handle and palm grip. This system also simplifies procedure preparation with an integrated power cable, eliminating the need to purchase and re-sterilize separate cables.  

Developed in cooperation with Marc J Philippon, MD

  • Totally insulated shaft reduces RF effect on surrounding tissue
  • Low-profile 3.5 mm diameter shaft fits a 5.5 mm cannula
  • Comfortable handle with finger indents and shaped palm rest provide a sure grip; trigger actuator pulls easily for tip flexion Integrated cable attaches directly to generator
  • Robust mechanical design ensures reliable performance
  • Extra long 240 mm shaft improves joint access Up to 100° tip flexion allows greater access, with three different tip configurations
