Tenex Health has received the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance for the TX1 Tissue Removal System.
The portable, self-contained system offers precise soft tissue removal for tendons and other soft tissues with intended use in the elbow, knee, ankle, foot, and shoulder.
The TX1 Tissue Removal System helps physicians in the FAST procedure -Focused Aspiration of Soft Tissue- for removal of degenerated tissue and restoration of natural tendon and soft tissue function for their patients.
Based on technology developed in collaboration with Mayo Clinic and licensed to Tenex Health, the TX1 System delivers ultrasonic energy to debride, emulsify, and aspirate degenerated tissue through the pen-like ultrasonic handpiece.
The TX1 Handpiece is activated through foot-pedal technology allowing control throughout the procedure.
The TX1 System provides an advantage to both physicians and patients — a procedure that is minimally invasive, safe, and effective with expected recovery time less than more invasive procedures.
