Cosman G4 RF Generator - 1 EA
Radiofrequency generator touch screen for custom physician and patient settings.

To the best of our knowledge, Boston Scientific is the only source that can provide the required equipment.

Pain medicine currently has no dedicated RF generator machine. The majority of pain procedures performed each day require an RF generator machine. The Cosman G4 RF probes that we are using are integrated probes. Boston Scientific is only company that manufactures integrated probes, Cosman G4 RF probes. Other equipment previously utilized failed at an unacceptable rate, caused unnecessary delays in patient care due to downtime for repairs. This also caused undue expense in sterilization and new replacement probes. Boston Scientific is the only manufacturer that utilizes integrated probes, the Cosman G4 RF probes are compatible with the equipment currently utilized by Pain Medicine Service at the Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center.
