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.

Key Features:

  • 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.
