Release date- 02072014 - CINCINNATI, OH - Ethicon Endo-Surgery (Ethicon) today announced the receipt of a Bronze International Design Excellence Awards (IDEA) from the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) for innovation with ENSEAL G2 Articulating Tissue Sealers.

'At Ethicon our commitment to delivering strategic design and consistent value is a team process, driven by observational insights, procedural knowledge and the ultimate goal of positively impacting patient outcomes,' said Steve Eichmann, Director of Research & Development, Industrial Design and Human Factors. 'We appreciate this recognition from IDSA for our customer-driven innovation and the advancements that ENSEAL G2 Articulating Tissue Sealers represent for both patients and healthcare providers.'

The IDSA recognized the ENSEAL G2 Articulating Tissue Sealers for an innovative design that enables surgeons to access tissue in deep or tight spaces as well as maneuver around corners and behind structures in the body. This is the first articulating advanced energy device of its kind that enables surgeons to use a perpendicular approach to cut and seal vessels up to 7mm in diameter and lymphatics through a 5mm port. A flexible joint articulates 55 degrees on either side (for a total 110 degrees of articulation) without sacrificing shaft stiffness, while an articulation wheel enables users to lock the desired angle of approach into position for stability.

As a Bronze Medal Winner, ENSEAL G2 Articulating Tissue Sealers will be featured in the IDEA 2014 Web Gallery, in IDSA's Innovation Magazine's Fall Yearbook of Design Excellence, as well as through various design media outlets. As one of IDEA's winning designs, ENSEAL G2 Articulating Tissue Sealers will also be added to the exhibition at The Henry Ford Museum to share and preserve the story of American innovation.
