WiNerve4 Intraoperative Console
Clinical intraoperative neuromonitoring
Our clinical product line is led by the WiNerve4 system, an evoked potentials workstation for intraoperative neuromonitoring of the laryngeal nerve during thyroid surgery.
Specifications: 4 monitoring channels and 2 stimulation channels.
WiNerve4 delivers increased safety, protecting the Recurrent Laryngeal Nerve (RLN) and vocal cord function from damage in thyroid surgery.
Functional nerve integrity is assessed as the surgeon progresses in the dissection procedure. The classic protocol involves stimulation of the Vagus or the LGN nerves, and detection of the electromyographic (EMG) response on the vocal cords. The EMG is measured by thin electrodes mounted on the endotracheal tube, which remain in contact with the vocal cords throughout the surgical procedure.
Wireless Clip Stimulator for continuous monitoring
To achieve continuous monitoring of the Recurrent Laryngeal Nerve (RLN), we are working on a wireless soft clip stimulator. This device is placed around the Vagus Nerve (VN) and stimulates continuously the VN-RLN-vocal cord circuit during the surgical procedure. It includes an RF transceiver affording remote control, a nerve stimulation circuit and a tiny single-use microbattery.
The video below illustrates the working principles of the device. Please get in touch for more information on this new product.
