The Ocelot™ Nano by TendoNova is indicated for fragmentation and debridement of soft tissue.

TendoNovaWhile there are percutaneous tenotomy devices currently available on the market, a safe and innovative approach that is economically practical for the current healthcare system is needed to better manage tendinopathy and provide targeted treatment to assist in recovery and return to activity.

The Ocelot Nano by Tendonova is indicated for fragmentation and debridement of soft tissue. It is an innovative, portable, handheld, battery-powered device that consists of a reusable drive unit, a charging station, a single-use sterile disposable unit with multiple lengths that house the cutting tool assembly, and an optional tablet/mobile application that displays real-time performance data.

The Ocelot Nano by TendoNova functions by rapidly oscillating a stainless-steel franseen cutter to mechanically debride and fragment soft tissue. This procedure breaks up scar tissue in the tendon, increasing blood flow and releasing growth factors.

  • A chronic tendon is debrided to promote tendon remodeling
  • Provides port for delivery of ortho-biologics
  • Can be used as an adjunct with PRP
  • Can be performed in an outpatient setting
  • Does not require irrigation, thus preserving the natural biological environment and injected therapies
  • Safe and easy to use
  • Decreased cost of care
  • Improved patient experience
  • Improved physician experience

Controlled fragmentation and debridement of the tendon has been used to promote proper healing and tendon remodeling. Fragmentation and debridement induce pro-inflammatory markers (e.g., macrophages, neutrophils, and cytokines), activating the start of upregulation. Once fragmentation and debridement are complete, it has been found that the tendon will begin to repair and remodel in a healthy, organized state.

The Ocelot Nano by TendoNova has applications in sports medicine, orthopedic surgery, nonsurgical orthopedics, foot and ankle surgery, pain management, podiatry and veterinary medicine.
