The Aquamantys is designed for spine surgeons to optimize speed and continuity during surgical cases. It provides hemostatic sealing capabilities for incised soft tissue and epidural veins with a single device.

The Aquamantys also uses the Transcollation technology to combine radiofrequency energy and saline to reduce blood loss and improve visualization during spine procedures.
