NBS System 4
The NBS System 4 is a new Navigated Brain
Stimulation (NBS) device for non-invasive direct cortical mapping in clinical
neurosurgery as well as clinical research into applications of navigated rTMS.
Nexstim has developed and implemented several proprietary features in the new system to enable NBS to be easily adopted as the routine solution for pre-surgical mapping of the cortex in clinical neurosurgery. Computer-aided alignment, motor threshold finding and E-field-based stimulation enable mapping of motor areas around a tumor in just 30 minutes - accurately and reliably. With the NexSpeech® module, the NBS also allows for the pre-surgical mapping of cortical speech areas.
In post-stroke diagnostics, the powerful
output of the stimulator is also a key feature enabling the clinical use of the
NBS System 4 in determining the functional survival of muscle representation
areas in the cortex and the integrity of sub-cortical motor tracts.
For clinical research into applications of repetitive TMS (rTMS), the new NBS System 4 offers one of the most powerful stimulators available. Precision-manufactured therapy coils and accurate navigation allow rTMS protocols to be accurately and reliably targeted to the desired intracranial structures and to be replicated in later sessions with the highest possible precision.
The NBS System 4 features:
* Navigation: MRI-guided targeting of E-field
* Integrated, powerful TMS with precision coils
* Dual screens for side-by-side display of intracranial E-field and EMG responses
* DICOM export of images to surgical navigation systems and microscopes
* Navigated rTMS delivery
* Proprietary software for clinical ease-of-use
* Compact and mobile
* NexSpeech® module (option) for speech mapping
