The paper gives a description of an all-purpose laboratory complex for investigations of biological tissue behaviour at application of high-frequency currents to them under the conditions, corresponding to welding live tissues by different algorithms. This complex allows studying the influence of various design features of the instruments and welding process parameters on the behaviour and structural changes of biological tissues. This equipment is optimal to conduct optimization of new technological procedures, parameters and software, oriented towards specific surgical procedures. Given as an example are the results of experiments on welding the walls of pig stomach and small intestine at pulsed and continuous feeding of 440 kHz voltage under the conditions corresponding to electric welding of biological tissues. 10 Ref., 10 Figures.
