Secure 7mm vessel sealing and spot coagulation
Explore the Unique THUNDERBEAT Portfolio
Olympus provides innovative energy solutions, delivering instrument versatility for efficient and streamlined operations with optimal patient outcomes.
THUNDERBEAT is the world’s first and only advanced energy system that delivers two well-established forms of energy to a tissue simultaneously:
At Olympus, we are committed to the pursuit of uncompromised safety and reliability. The THUNDERBEAT Front-actuated Grip Type S has been developed with new safety features besides the inherited advantages of its predecessor. Safety is further enhanced by the newly developed Intelligent Tissue Monitoring technology which uses sophisticated detection technology to control ultrasonic activation. These improvements deliver breakthrough THUNDERBEAT performance that facilitates seamless and efficient surgery.
“THUNDERBEAT represents the latest development of energy use in surgery and it will allow surgeons to be much more efficient in their procedures. The patient has shorter anesthesia and the healthcare team gets through the procedure more quickly.”

THUNDERBEAT bipolar energy combined with the "wiper jaw" design provides reliable vessel sealing for large mesenteric vessels up to 7mm.
The combination of ultrasonic and bipolar energy offers efficient dissection and transection during colon mobilisation whilst the fine tip design aids in deep, pelvic dissection and spot coagulation of bleeders.
THUNDERBEAT bipolar energy provides reliable sealing for hepatic vessels up to 7mm. The combination of ultrasonic and bipolar energy offers efficient dissection and rapid transection of the hepatic parenchyma. The narrow jaw profile and ability to cut to the tip without cavitation allows careful dissection of the hepatic hilum and skeletonisation of the portal vein.
Dissection of major vessels
The unique THUNDERBEAT hybrid technology provides secure vessel-sealing and precise dissection that enables surgeons to expose and isolate the major vessels precisely while reducing the risk of damaging important structures. THUNDERBEAT enables fast and effective transection of the parenchymal tissue, reducing the need for instrument exchange, thus increasing procedural efficiency.
THUNDERBEAT bipolar energy provides secure vessel sealing for short gastric vessels up to 7mm and reliable haemostasis when chasing bleeders. Rapid dissection is achieved in gastric sleeve and bypass procedures with the combination of ultrasonic and bipolar energy. The instrument's fine jaw design also offers precise dissection, adhesiolysis and atraumatic grasping capability during revisional procedures.
When performing thyroidectomy procedures, THUNDERBEAT Open Fine Jaw offers the precision and versatility to securely ligate all thyroid vessels, achieving a fast, blood-dry mobilisation of the gland. The fine tip design ensures careful dissection around delicate structures such as the the trachea and vagus nerve.
