    Features and Specifications


    Procedure solutions for deep brain stimulation include:

    • Nexframe® stereotactic image guided system
    • Nexdrive® micropositioner with adjustable Z-stage
    • Stimloc lead anchoring device for lead stability
    • Leadpoint™ Focus microelectrode recording system with next generation technology

    Nexframe Stereotactic Image Guided System

    Nexframe stereotactic image guided system gives you the capacity for operating room efficiency and reduced procedure time, while maintaining the accuracy of traditional stereotaxy.1-2 At the same time, your patients can enjoy greater comfort and freedom of movement during implant procedures. Nexframe offers:

    • Stereotactic precision with the advantages of image-guided surgery
    • Noninvasive patient headrest
    • Various draping options for better visibility
    • Optional offsets to allow stereotactic positioning grid of parallel trajectories at 1-mm increments
    • Can help in patient acceptance of the procedure

    Nexdrive Micropositioner

    Nexdrive micropositioner is a sterile, all-in-one microdrive for deep brain stimulation lead implantation and microelectrode recording. It has a simplified interface for microelectrode recording and is easily calibrated. The stable, lightweight, and integrated design provides turnkey functionality with the Nexframe system.

    • Single-unit recording capable
    • Minimal tissue effect, advancing only electrode
    • Simplified X-Y staging, for easier parallel-track access
    • Integrated lead calibration eliminates Z-depth manual calculations and the need for extra rulers
    • Fixed cannula maintains trajectory during lead implantation

    Stimloc Anchoring Device

    Stimloc lead anchoring device and burr hole cover provide a complete solution for easy and accurate deep brain stimulation lead stabilization. Stimloc assures secure lead positioning after implant, while its low profile enhances patient comfort and safety. Stimloc offers:

    • Easy repositioning of lead
    • Enables access for lead revisions
    • Proprietary support clip mechanism

    Leadpoint Focus Microelectrode Recording System

    Leadpoint Focus is a microelectrode recording (MER) system for DBS procedures. The next generation technology combines performance, recording, customizable functionality, and ease of use. Leadpoint Focus offers:

    • Reliable performance that increases physiological localization and improves decision-making confidence
    • Easy-to-use modular design with plug and play operation
    • Clinical research capabilities in advanced signal recording and processing
