The Guideline™ 5 from FHC is the most advanced neuromodulation targeting system that has been specifically designed for both research and clinical applications. The system can effectively support functional neurosurgery programs that deal with psychiatric disorders, movement disorders, pain, and epilepsy.

Thanks to new features, users can now optimize their micro and macro electrode channel count with enhanced analytical tools and extended connection options.

The modular system comes in a range of configurations for the unique neurosurgical procedure requirements of users. Selections range from an entry-level base system for new DBS programs to combined robust systems for advanced centers of excellence that need extra features like supplemental auxiliary channels for SEEG, ECoG, and LFP; advanced visualization options: and general-purpose digital inputs and outputs.

Resident Expert™

Resident Expert™ (REX) provides new supplementary tools in FHC’s Guideline™ 5 that help locate DBS targets by integrating the latest spike detection methodology with sensory motor testing to help make informed decisions at the time of functional neurosurgery.

REX software provides unattended detection, neuronal spike rasters with filtering of non-physiological artifacts, indication of signal quality based on statistical properties of the signal, sorting and visualization of neuronal action potentials, and more.

Users can make use of the REX Kinetic Motion Detector to synchronize limb flexing at the time of intraoperative neurological evaluation.
