Lithotripsy Laser

Company Profile
Limmer Laser GmbH is a German company, specialising in the design, manufacture and sale of medical lasers and accessories. Our products cover all the major disciplines of human, dental and veterinary medicine. For each discipline a broad range of high quality accessories is available, such as the VACULAS smoke evacuator. The product range includes CO2 Lasers, Diode Lasers and Specialty Lasers. Instead of simply focusing on separate devices, our philosophy is to create multipurpose, integrated and highly functional work stations. Working with our many loyal customers all over the world, and our established network of suppliers and distributors, we will continue to provide innovative solutions for modern medicine far into the future. We have a strong emphasis on research and development, production, service and training. Working in conjunction with hospitals and physicians is just as important as good communication. Product quality is our No. 1 priority: Our company is certified to the stringent European Quality Standard EN ISO 13485:2003.

FREDDY 400 plus

Speed - Safety - Stonefree
The FREDDY 400 plus lithotripsy laser is the new standard for effective, safe and fast stone therapy. Using specialised, state of the art technology, this device guarantees tissue-protective treatment of even the hardest bladder, kidney or bile duct stones, in a faster and more cost-effective way than any other stone therapy currently available.

Endoscopic View of the Fragmentation of a Bladder Stone

The energy of the FREDDY 400 plus is transmitted by highly flexible fibre probes, fragmenting stones by a sequence of shockwaves. The extraordinary Dual Pulse of the device (see diagram) consists of a major infrared pulse with wavelength of 1.064 nm, along with a 532 nm green energy pulse which is highly absorbed by the stone material. During treatment, a high energy plasma beam is created between the fibre tip and the stone, which is converted into a mechanical shockwave during contact with solid stone material. This effect is athermal and therefore guarantees the protection of soft tissue even on direct contact with the fibre probe.

The innovative Antiperforation Mode avoids the coagulation or perforation of surrounding tissue. In contrast to traditional laser lithotripters, for example based on Ho:YAG lasers, FREDDY 400 plus only affects solid material. This extraordinary safety feature results in shorter treatment and recovery times for the patient, as virtually no collateral damage can occur.
Highly flexible fibre probes allow intracorporeal lithotripsy in bladder, ureter and kidney

5 s Time

The FREDDY 400 plus lithotripsy laser uses an optimised Dual Pulse for maximum effect at the stone

The Main Advantages

Extremely effective Fragments even the hardest stone material, while softer stones can be selectively precision treated Extremely safe The lasers Antiperforation Mode avoids any unintentional coagulation or perforation of soft tissue Extremely versatile - within its discipline This laser can only destroy stones - but does this remarkably well and without the many possible complications seen, for example, with Ho:YAG lithotripters Extremely flexible The special fibre probes are optimised for use in combination with flexible Ureterenoscopes (URS) and can be applied in both ureter and kidney Easy to use The device is preconfigured and ready to use immediately after being switched on
