SPEEP – Speed AND PRECISION
SPEEP is our latest pump invention. It uses the same principle as a peristaltic pump* to control the flow. SPEEP also allows the vacuum to be controlled with the foot pedal, which enables regulation of the holding force generated at the instrument opening.
*Modulation based on the principle of a peristaltic pump
How does the SPEEP pump work?
SPEEP combines the advantages of a flow-controlled peristaltic pump with the sportiness of a vacuum-controlled venturi pump.
The SPEEP pump allows both the flow and the vacuum to be controlled independently of each another. The foot pedal not only allows to aspirate or release. The surgeon experiences control when using it to hold and manipulate fragments and tissue. SPEEP continues to control the vacuum even under occlusion.
What are the benefits of the SPEEP pump?
With challenging cases such as floppy iris syndrome or zonular weakness, precise control of the fluidics is essential. Thanks to the independent settings for flow and vacuum, SPEEP generates a dosable holding force at the instrument opening – placing the surgeon in control.
