Bending Laser Probe 20 gauge

Protected by US patent 9,370,447 and other patent pending applications worldwide

This laser probe is made out of 8ft fiberoptic, terminated on one end with laser connector, and on another side with a handpiece for holding and manipulation during surgery. For protection against damages, a flexible plastic jacket covers the length of the fiber.   The handpiece is terminated by a proximal stainless steel tubing that is 20 gauge in size, and ending with a distal pre-curved PEEK memory tube that can change angle when activated by the sliding button on the handle side.   When the sliding button on the handle is advanced, an internal straightening tube advances into the distal pre-curved PEEK memory tube, thus causing a reduction of the angle of the pre-curved PEEK memory tube, down to zero degrees at the maximum sliding position, allowing the selection of the desired angle during surgery. This device allows to safely and effectively transmit laser energy from the laser source to the surgical site, facilitated by the aiming beam that is provided by the laser source. The laser spot size at 4mm away is 1mm. 




  • Ergonomic and non-slip handpiece design.
  • Different connectors that suit most laser source models available on the market.
  • Sterilized by Ethylene Oxide, single-use, latex-free.
  • Dia 0.91 mm (20ga), Length 2.4 m (8 ft)

    Fully slide button forward to straighten the tip prior to penetration or withdrawal; sliding the button all the way forward straightens the tip while sliding the button backward incrementally curves the tip.
