From Which Medical Device

The Dyonics Glider Articular Cartilage Probe is a monopolar radiofrequency probe designed for the treatment of Grade II and III chondromalacia. It is part of the Smith and Nephew ELECTROTHERMAL Arthroscopy System and is compatible with the Vulcan generator. The effect of this device on articular cartilage is different from other systems. For a comparison, see the article by Ganguly et al, although this study was industry funded.
