Intraoperative Neuromonitoring

  • Reusable stimulation probes

    We provide stimulation probes for a wide range of applications - for use with or without microscope, for conventional or minimally invasive procedures, monopolar or bipolar probes. We will deliver what is right for your specific needs. Our long-lasting plug-in connectors between probe and connecting cable can be locked into position, thus preventing stimulation probes from being accidentally loosened and falling off the operating table. We can deliver bespoke connectors for your specific requirements - just ask! 

  • Mikrofork probe

    A microfork probe is the probe of choice for applications that involve the preparation of the target nerve. The probe is an excellent stimulator of surface tissue, yielding reliable results, keeping stimulus artefacts at a minimum. Microfork probes are primarily used in thyroid and spinal surgery. 

  • Bipolar concentric probe

    For even more precise and accurate localisation of a nerve, a BCS probe should be used. Its concentric, atraumatic build and ball tip make it suitable even for the preparation and stimulation of deeper tissue. Its main applications are ENT and OMFS.

  • Monopolar probes

    Monopolar probes require a reference electrode in order to close the stimulation circuit. The positioning of the reference electrode in relation to the probe tip touching the tissue defines the electric field through which the stimulation current flows. It is thus possible to locate nerves in tissue areas further away from the probe tip. However, the stimulus artefact triggered by the probe is often higher than when using bipolar probes.

  • Monopolar probe "Pedicle Screw"

    Our monopolar ball tip probe is particularly suitable to ensure that bore holes are positioned without damage to nerves before and during the fixation of fractures and the placing of pedicle screws. The ball tip ensures that all nerves can be stimulated, wherever they are in the bore hole.

  • Bayonet probes

    Bayonet probes facilitate the use of intraoperative microscopes. Their shaft has been shaped in a way that will not impair the surgeon's view. 

  • Cortex probe

    The cortex probe is used for the atraumatic stimulation of cortex that has been exposed in order to map essential cerebral structures before and during neurosurgical intervention. 

  • Hook probes

    Bipolar and tripolar hook probes are suitable for the direct stimulation and acquisition of nerve action potentials. The three contacts of the tripolar stimulation probe have the cathode placed in the middle, as a physiological means of reducing stimulus artefacts to a minimum. The rapidly following action potential in the recording probe shows clearly and can be evaluated. 

  • Metal plugs

    Our lockable metal plugs provide the perfect fit for probes and cables. Could we not simply permanently attach probes to cables? There are good reasons not to do so:

    1. If a cable is accidentally damaged, we can simply and easily replace it without any effects on the precious probe.

    2. The same cable may be used for several types of probes.
