A lighted electrosurgical device to cut and coagulate tissue while improving the visibility of deep crevasses in the body.

Medtronic produces electrosurgical pencils that cut and coagulate using high frequency electricity. Our team redesigned their current electrosurgical pencil (the SEP 50XX) to include a ring light, placed at the working end of the pencil, to increase visibility of the surgical field. This redesign also allows for more efficient smoke evacuation and improved overall pencil ergonomics.
