Encision Inc. (Encision), incorporated on February 1, 1991, is a medical device company. The Company has developed and markets technology that provides patient safety in minimally-invasive surgery. Its Active Electrode Monitoring (AEM) technology provides surgeons with the desired tissue effects, while preventing stray electrosurgical energy that can cause complications and even death. It has developed and launched patented AEM Surgical Instruments that enhances patient safety and patient outcomes in laparoscopic surgical procedures.
The Company produces and markets a line of AEM Instruments, which are 'shielded and monitored to prevent stray electrosurgical burns from insulation failure and capacitive coupling. Its product line includes a range of articulating instruments (scissors, graspers and dissectors), fixed-tip electrodes and suction-irrigation electrodes. These AEM Instruments are available in an array of reusable and disposable options. It has a line of handles that are used for advanced laparoscopic procedures that incorporates stiffer shafts and ergonomic features. In addition, the Company markets an AEM monitor product line that is used in conjunction with AEM Instruments.
The primary form of electrosurgery, monopolar electrosurgery, is a standard tool for general surgeons worldwide. The AEM system consists of shielded five millimeter AEM Instruments and an AEM monitor. The AEM Instruments are designed to function identically to the five millimeter instruments that surgeons are familiar with, but with the added benefit of enhanced patient safety. The entire line of laparoscopic instruments has the integrated AEM design and includes the range of instruments that are common in laparoscopic surgery.
The Company competes with Covidien Surgical Solutions Group, Ethicon Endo-Surgery and Lumenis.
