The NeuralGlider-Cortical System from Actuated Medical is a neural implant insertion system. Utilizing ultrasonic vibration during insertion, it can maximize the quality of chronic neural implant recordings in pre-clinical neuroscience studies.
- Reduced Insertion Force – Micron-scale, ultrasonic vibration during insertion reduces the force required to penetrate the brain surface.
- Accurate – Reduced insertion force facilitates slow (0.1 mm/s or slower), accurate array insertions while minimizing dimpling or tissue displacement.
- Preserves Tissue Integrity – Slow and accurate insertions with minimal tissue displacement can result in better signal-to-noise ratio compared to conventional insertions.
- Integrated software – Controls insertion velocity and depth.
