About Us

Helica Instruments was formed specifically to produce the Helica TC. Working together with the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, the technical aspects of the instrument were overcome and our solution, the Helica Thermal Coagulator was put to the test by medical authorities and specialists alike.


The name Helica is an abreviation of Helium - Ion - Coagulation and which specifically refers to the Helica TC an electro-surgical device commonly known as the Helica which in effect is a helium thermal coagulator.

With the help of Consultant Gynaecologists who have assisted us in our trials, we manufacture open surgery cutting probes and laparoscopic cutting & coagulating probes.┬áThese are now used in several different operating procedures including but are not limited to the removal of fibroids (myomectomy), ovarian drilling & the division of adhesions.
