The sp-mode™ is the latest advancement in LightMed laser photocoagulators, offering an innovative approach to achieving positive clinical outcomes and eliminating laser-induced thermal tissue damage or treatment side effects. Also, ongoing studies demonstrate that this product is highly effective, and can treat disorders at a much earlier stage.

Ultra-High Performance Technology: TruScan577 utilizes innovative laser technology, assuring the highest standards of versatility and performance and also has a life span of up to 10 times longer than its competitors. It has a diffusion bonding laser cavity design, which utilizes advanced coating elements that are applied to the laser optical components. This helps the laser maintain peak stability and durability under high stress conditions.

Smart Joystick Manipulator: The integrated micro-joystick provides superb fingertip precision for positioning and control of treatment spots and patterns.
