Helix

The Helix solution

OBVIOUSLY, A UNIQUE INNOVATION.

Based on surgeons' expectations, we have created HELIX, a new standard in automatic capsulorhexis for cataract surgery.
The laser technology patented by Ilasis gives the surgeon total control over the surgery while ensuring a perfect capsulorhexis without any risk.
HELIX combines a fiber laser and a specific handpiece developed according to the principles of frugal innovation. The capsulorhexis is performed in 20 milliseconds once the pupil is dilated and can be used on a closed eyeball even before the beginning of the operation.
The result is a perfectly circular capsulorhexis, centered according to the surgeon's judgment, allowing optimal positioning of even the most complex implants.

Efficient

SEAMLESS INTEGRATION INTO THE OPERATING ROOM WORKFLOW

Don't disrupt your workflow: roll the laser wherever you want, without patient transfer.

As discreet as it is effective: the most compact femtosecond laser (0.4 x 0.4 m), as compact as the conventional phaco solutions, light (< 40 Kg) and with total mobility thanks to its batteries.

Accurate

PROVEN FEMTOSECOND TECHNOLOGY FOR BETTER RESULTS

State-of-the-art femtosecond laser, homemade design and performance: Helix delivers the exceptional precision and reproducibility you expect for capsulotomy.

Concrete benefit for the patient: precise size, circularity and position of the capsulotomy for better implant placement and good long-term results.

Simple

AN INTUITIVE HANDPIECE FOR QUICK ADOPTION

Ultra-simple user experience: user-centric, no warm-up time, one-button operation.

No tweaking: making Helix a plug-and-play device with a quick learning curve.

Patient-friendly interface: preparation only needs a sterile patient interface, no invasive consumables, no burns, no additional incisions.

Economical and fast

FEMTOSECOND LASER BENEFITS AVAILABLE TO ALL PATIENTS

Most affordable femtosecond laser ever used for capsulotomy: significantly lower acquisition cost than current femtosecond laser devices, affordable operating costs.

Fast execution: the laser creates an ideal capsulotomy in 20 milliseconds.

Vision

OUR VISION OF INNOVATION.

Making performance accessible to the greatest number of people

Technology is not an end in itself: we innovate to make surgical procedures easier for both experienced and novice surgeons, thus improving accessibility of care for patients.

Listening and starting first and foremost from use

Our innovations are rooted in reality and respond to a clearly identified need. It is by taking into account the expectations of surgeons that we are able to offer such high-performance and optimized devices.

Never be afraid to challenge ourselves

Striving to do better with less or keeping it simple in a highly demanding environment: it is only when you allow yourself to think differently that you can really make a difference.

Our team of experts

SCIENTIFIC ADVISORY BOARD.

Because the Helix solution is first and foremost oriented towards practitioners, we have surrounded ourselves with a team of experts in ophthalmology.

What they say

I will use this system for all my patients.

Pr François Lignereux

Automatic capsulorhexis is a dream that will probably be accomplished in 2022 (source : europe.ophthalmologytimes.com )

Pr. Jorge Alió

We eagerly await the quality of femtosecond capsulorhexis with the simplicity of manual instruments.
