Renishaw exhibits at Canadian Neurological Sciences Federation Congress

11 June 2018

From June 24th to June 27th, 2018, global engineering technologies company Renishaw will attend the Canadian Neurological Sciences Federation's annual congress. The event, held at the Halifax Convention Centre, Nova Scotia, provides multidisciplinary courses relevant to all neuroscience specialities. On booth 304, Renishaw will showcase its neuromate® stereotactic robot and neuroinspire™ its surgical planning software.

The neuromate robot has been used in thousands of electrode implantation procedures including deep brain stimulation (DBS) for Parkinson's disease and stereoelectroencephalography (SEEG), a procedure used in epilepsy diagnosis. The robot provides consistent, rapid and precise targeting in neurosurgical procedures and removes the need for a stereotactic frame.

Renishaw's neuroinspire surgical planning software provides the tools to assist with the planning of most stereotactic procedures. It integrates with the neuromate stereotactic robot and provides the ability to carry out peri-operative verification.

“The Canadian Neurological Sciences Federation's annual congress is a great opportunity for Renishaw to meet both existing and potential customers,” explained Adrian Gut, Global Sales and Marketing Director of Renishaw's Neurological Products Division. “Renishaw already contributes to the Additive Design in Surgical Solutions (ADEISS) Centre in London, Canada as a result of its partnership with Western University and the London Medical Network. However, there is considerable potential for further collaboration in Canada.”

“The robot totally changes how we approach insertion of SEEG electrodes,” commented David A. Steven, Associate Professor of Neurosurgery, Western University, London, Ontario. “It is noticeably faster and more accurate than the previous system. In addition, it allows us to plan trajectories previously impossible with a standard frame, making surgery safer and more accurate.”
