«We are thrilled with the CataRhex3, which is used in our practice for 100% of our in-office phaco applications. The platform is indestructible, totally reliable and completely intuitive, so there is virtually no learning curve. The device is very beautiful in its simplicity and using it is pure delight.» Jack Parker, MD PHD Parker Cornea Alabama, USA
The CataRhex 3 is newly featured with the unique SPEEP pump, which provides even more flexibility and control. easyPhaco technology ensures safe and efficient emulsification.
The multifunctional surgical platform CataRhex 3 designed for cataract and glaucoma surgery is a masterpiece of surgical technology, boasting powerful performance and compact design.
The device’s display is clearly laid out, its ease of use is high, and everything about it looks clear and simple. In addition, the surgical platform is ready for operation incredibly quickly: after switching on, the system is ready for operation within five seconds.
SPEEP combines the advantages of a flow-controlled peristaltic pump with the athletic performance of a Venturi pump. With the SPEEP pump, both flow and vacuum can be controlled independently, providing the surgeon with the desired control over fluidics. Surgeons gain excellent control, whether it is for speedy core preparation or fine capsule polishing.
In cataract surgery, the SPEEP pump can provide helpful support for eyes with pronounced zonular weakness or floppy iris syndrome. The finely adjustable holdability of the SPEEP pump also provides the expected control during the removal of the epinucleus, according to Oertli.
How does the SPEEP pump work?
SPEEP combines the advantages of a flow-controlled peristaltic pump with the sportiness of a Venturi pump. With the SPEEP pump, both flow and vacuum can be controlled independently of each other. This results in the desired mastery over fluidics and takes efficiency and safety to a new level.
Doctors will experience complete control, whether required for speedy nucleus preparation or fine capsule polishing. The pre-set flow rate supports chamber stability in anterior segment surgery. The directly controllable vacuum ensures a fast response time and enhances the pump’s sporty performance while maintaining subtle control.
Even under occlusion, doctors will be in complete control of the vacuum. Suction or release via the foot pedal can be performed easily and you will experience controlled holdabilty and manipulation of both fragments and tissue.
With SPEEP, it is the doctor who determines the speed of work. What are the advantages of the SPEEP pump? In cataract surgery, the SPEEP pump assists doctors in eyes with severe zonular weakness or floppy iris syndrome. Even during the removal of the epinucleus, the finely adjustable holdability of the SPEEP pump offers complete control.
