What are the main advantages of Thermaspec medical device system?

Share Article:

  1. Level of Energy – While most equipments’ applicator transmits a high level of energy (in some of them up to 80 Watts), Medispec’s Thermaspec uses a relatively low temperature while maintaining the application’s temperature level (applied energy).
  2. Minimum Risk for the Rectum – In the equipment cooling systems, the Temperature Sensors (“Thermocouples”) are only EVALUATING the temperature as they are reaching the prostate, and therefore it is recommended to use a Trans-Rectal Probe. In Thermaspec, the sensors are taking the exact measurement of the temperature received by the prostate, with no interference of the cooling water.
  3. Versatility – The Thermaspec mode of action allow the doctor to adjust the position of the applicator and energy to the size of the prostate, using special marks on the catheter. Medispec developed an applicator that is Multi-Use (The Thermocouples are installed on the applicator). The doctor only needs to replace the catheter between one patient and the next. For the first few treatments, Medispec prosvide catheters with the consumables (Applicator and Thermocouples) pre-installed . Part of them will be for Regular Prostate and part of them for Small Prostate.  Multi-Use consumables are later applied.
  4. Catheter size – In order to avoid using a cooling system, the catheter diameter is small.
  5. Cost-effective – The costs of the consumables of the Thermaspec are economic. The Multi-Use applicator and thermocouples reduce costs to a minimum.
