An integrated technology platform to enable better spine surgery
Pulse integrates multiple technologies into one platform, and its extensible architecture can support future applications, including robotics and smart tools.7 Currently, the platform includes:
Radiation reduction and imaging enhancement: NuVasive's Lessray® technology was designed to increase OR efficiency through streamlined imaging workflow, while also significantly reducing exposure to radiation for everyone in the room. Pulse supports numerous imaging systems, but offers enhanced integration with Siemens' cutting-edge 3D mobile C-arm—the Cios Spin®.
Quest Imaging Solutions provides all major brands of surgical c-arms (new and refurbished) and carries a large inventory for purchase or rent. With over 20 years in the medical equipment business we can help you fulfill your equipment needs
Navigation: Pulse introduces a procedurally integrated navigation technology that offers the potential to improve screw placement accuracy and minimize radiation.
Neuromonitoring: This application provides proprietary automated nerve detection with standardized setup and clinically validated alerts to help reduce variability and allow for faster interpretation of neural information.
Global alignment: NuVasive's Integrated Global Alignment (iGA®) technology offers surgical planning and intraoperative assessment tools to help surgeons correct or restore spinal alignment. Surgeons can later follow up postoperatively to assess the results of the procedure.
Patient-specific rod bending: NuVasive's spinal rod bending technology, Bendini®, is used to create patient-specific rods that are bent to implant locations. Bendini expedites manual rod manipulation through computer-assisted bend instructions.
Wireless connectivity: This tool allows seamless connectivity and control of the Pulse platform from all members of the surgical team in the OR—from the surgeon to the C-arm technologist to support staff.
