Renishaw brings its stereotactic robot to Canada

The London Health Sciences Center in London, Ontario, has installedRenishaw’s Neuromate stereotactic robot, the first instance of the robot in Canada. The procedure was a stereoelectroencephalography (SEEG), which uses an intracerebral electrode to measure electrical signals in the brain. The goal of the procedure is to figure out which part of the brain generate the sudden

What is a position encoder and how is it used in medical devices?

Renishaw A position encoder is a device comprising a precision graduated scale and readhead (sensor). The encoder determines the position of the readhead on the scale and outputs this signal, in either analogue or digital formats, to a machine controller. Modern encoders may use optical, magnetic, capacitive or inductive principles to meet metrological requirements. Optical

Renishaw neuromate frameless Gen II cleared by the FDA

The U.S. Food and Drug administration (FDA) has issued clearance for Renishaw’s neuromate frameless Gen II stereotactic robotic system. Neuromate provides a platform for a broad range of functional neurosurgical procedures including electrode implantation for deep brain stimulation, and applications in neuroendoscopy, biopsy and other research applications. The robot – a Class II medical device

First Renishaw neuromate frameless Gen II robot installation in the United States of America

Renishaw says that a neuromate frameless Gen II stereotactic robotic system has been installed at the neurosurgery department of the Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia. This is the first installation of neuromate frameless Gen II in the USA. Ashwini D. Sharan, MD, Professor and Director of the Sidney Kimmel Medical College Department of Neurological
