Radio Frequency Ablation System

The Device

The Acessa Health ProVu® treatment system uses radio frequency (RF) energy to heat and destroy non-cancerous uterine fibroids. It includes electromagnetic tracking of the instrument tip and laparoscopic ultrasound imaging for intra-procedure visualization.

The Challenge

Acessa Health started with a legacy design of an RF ablation and coagulation system which did not incorporate ultrasound imaging or electromagnetic tracking. Minnetronix analyzed the previous design, addressed gaps, integrated ultrasound imaging and electromagnetic tracking, and manufactured 25 human-use units. Minnetronix understood the need to expedite the work and minimize changes wherever possible, leveraging previous FDA-cleared designs to save cost.

How Minnetronix Added Value

  • RF ablation expertise – Designed to comply with the latest safety and EMC standards for high-frequency surgical devices (60601-2-2:2017).
  • Systems integration – Designed the enclosure and interfaces between B-mode ultrasound imaging, electromagnetic instrument tracking, RF output, external HDMI monitor, and pneumatic controls.
  • Nimble New Product Introduction – Our NPI manufacturing area is perfectly-equipped for a short-run of devices.
