BOWA MEDICAL ARC 350 – The clever all-in-one generator for HF surgeryThe universal system BOWA MEDICAL ARC 350 for electrosurgery is impressive with a clear operating concept and innovative functionalities. Thus, the surgeon has numerous preset standard modes with recommended performance parameters at his or her disposal. In addition, the ARC 350 also offers indication-oriented modes for specific adjustment and quick, easy application. Use one of the settings as a starting point for your adaptation or save a profile according to your individual needs. A total of over 300 profiles can be stored.
The innovative socket concept allows the connection of up to two monopolar and two bipolar instruments simultaneously and is designed for all common standard connections. In monopolar coagulation, for example, both handles can be activated simultaneously. The optional special function LIGATION as well as the possibility to connect up to four instruments to the ARC 350 at the same time save valuable operating theatre time. All four separate socket outputs can be easily configured individually and the settings visually inspected at any time by the operating staff.
BOWA MEDICAL ARC 350 is ideal in almost all areas of electrosurgery:
- General, visceral, thoracic and paediatric surgery
- Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery
- Orthopaedics and trauma surgery
- Oral and maxillofacial surgery
Performance at the touch of a finger via interactive touch assistance systemWith the ARC 350, you control all device functions directly at the touch of a finger via the interactive glass touch front. Effects and individual setting options can be easily selected or reset using the clearly arranged icons. A tap on the relevant value is all it takes.
The logically structured user interface ensures a clear assignment of operation and instruments. For this purpose, the display is divided into four quadrants that correspond to the four sockets on the sides. If you assign an instrument to a socket, the corresponding socket indicator lights up. To ensure that you maintain an overview of every step of the process even in the hectic daily routine of the operating theatre, messages are output in plain text supported by graphic instructions.
Not only easier, but also more hygienic:
The display of the ARC 350 consists of a flat, smudge-resistant, impact- and scratch-resistant safety glass. Touch pad technology eliminates gaps and recesses. This enables fast and hygienic cleaning in the operating theatre.
Update service via USB:
With our update service you can easily update the software via USB stick.
The BOWA MEDICAL COMFORT SYSTEM for optimum workflowFor process optimisation in the operating theatre, every ARC 350 is equipped with state-of-the-art RFID technology and the BOWA MEDICAL COMFORT SYSTEM, the latest standard in terms of process reliability and user comfort. The COMFORT SYSTEM puts an end to manually kept tally sheets and tags on cables that are supposed to provide information about the type and scope of the instruments used.
With the Plug & Cut function, the unit automatically identifies that a standard instrument is connected. With the optional Plug & Cut COMFORT function, the correct parameters for the intended use of the connected, intelligent COMFORT instruments are also automatically preselected. The COMFORT SYSTEM monitors and documents the number of remaining uses of the instrument and shows this figure on the display. For 100% safe instrument and quality management.
The numerous hardware and software components of the BOWA MEDICAL ARC 350 ensure optimum surgical performance:
- ARC CONTROL Arc control for reproducible monopolar and bipolar cutting results
- Up to 9 effects per mode
- EASY Neutral electrode monitoring with contact monitor, baby mode with automatic power limitation
- ISSys Permanent System Self-Test
- CCS Permanent gate support
- Configurable socket concept
- Info area for device messages
- CUT modes: E.g. Standard, Dry, Cardiac, GastroCut Loop and Knife, MetraLOOP, Laparoscopy
- Micro-regulations and current forms for plastic and microsurgery with up to 0.1 W
- COAG modes: Moderate, Forced, Spray, Cardiac
- Monopolar SimCOAG: Allows simultaneous COAG activation of two monopolar handles with no change in the tissue effect.
- AUTOSTART function
ARC 350 in combination with ARC PLUS – the universal, argon-assisted workstation for surgery and endoscopyThe combination of the BOWA MEDICAL HF generator ARC 350 with the optionally available argon-assisted electrosurgery enables contact-free work on large areas with diffuse bleeding without damaging adjacent or submucosal tissue. ARC PLUS guarantees a clear view through smoke-free coagulation for safe work with few complications for effective haemostasis and devitalisation of tissue anomalies through homogeneous surface coagulation with limited penetration depth.
Advantages of the ARC PLUS:
- Contact-free coagulation without adhesion or sticking in parenchymal tissues, e.g. the liver
- Fast coagulation of large areas
- flexible coagulation zone
- Clear view due to smoke-free coagulation
- Particularly easy handling due to large ignition distance > 10 mm and easy ignition
Additional optional special functions:
- Option GastroCut for Gastroenterology (900-391)
For best results in polypectomy, papillotomy and endoscopic resections with loops or knife electrodes.
- Bipolar resection option for urology (900-395)
With extremely reliable gating behaviour and a high resection speed.
- Option LIGATION (900-396)
With the ARC 350 and BOWA MEDICAL LIGATION instruments, large lumen veins, arteries and tissue bundles up to 7 mm in diameter can be permanently and safely closed.
