Included in the neuromate® system

Standard tool holder

Laser holder

neuromate: tool holderThis is a universal holder featuring a guide into which standard neurosurgical instruments such as drills, guide tubes, biopsy needles, catheters etc. can be insertedLaser holderThe laser tool is used to check the patient registration and to mark the entry points on the patient head before surgery. It is mounted on the neuromate® arm in the same way as a standard tool holder

Remote control

Planning software

neuromate handset control unitThe remote control allows surgeons to move the neuromate® robotic arm. With the endoscopy option, the remote control allows surgeons to navigate the robotic arm within a volume pre-defined during the planning processThe neuromate® system is delivered with neurosurgical planning software. This software is also designed to control the neuromate® robot during surgery


Sterile drapes for the robotic arm and remote control

To ensure a sterile environment, surgical drapes are available for both the remote control as well as to cover the robotic arm.

Frame based options

Frame attachment

Neuromate frame adaptor

This part is designed to fix your usual stereotactic frame to the neuromate®. Models exist for different types of stereotactic frame.

Frameless options

Head holder and attachments

Fiducial fixation kit

Head holder This is composed of a half-ring, six pins and a clip to fix the half-ring onto the attachment.The head holder must be fixed to the base of the neuromate®.Fiducial fixation kitThe fiducial fixation is a semi-permanant implantable fixation (bone screw), which can be screwed into the skull, along with three biocompatible anchor pins. The bone screw has been specifically designed to facilitate fast, secure skull implantation.

Registration (ultrasound) tool holder

Image localizers

neuromate registration tool holderThe ultrasound tool-holder is used in frameless procedures and is mounted on the neuromate® arm in the same way as a standard tool holder.CT/MRI Patient FiducialCT or MRI compatible units are attached to the fiducial fixation when the patient undergoes image acquisition, and used in the planning software to register the dataset.

Registration (microphone) frame

The registration frame is attached to the fiducial fixation kit at the beginning of the frameless surgical procedure in order to achieve consitent cranial registration to the neuromate®. 

Endoscopic option

Endoscopic module

Endoscopic Tool Holder

A specific instrument holder has been design to receive most types of endoscope. The robotic arm movements in endoscopic mode are piloted with the remote control. The arm speed is reduced to avoid damage to the cerebral tissues.

Note: neuro-endoscopy option is not available in all countries, please contact our sales team for further information.

Micro-manipulator option

Electrode micro-manipulator kit

Neuromate Tool Kit Case

This includes the micro-manipulatorand all the necessary elements for implanting electrodes.

Elements are made from high-tech materials, with consideration for operating room constraints (sterilisation, storage etc)
