|DBS | Advance™ Deep Brain Stimulation Therapy System
Advanced IPG technology
DBS | Advance IPGs deliver long term therapy, minimizing therapy interruptions and potentially reducing the number of IPG replacement surgeries:
The Brio™ rechargeable IPG delivers a minimum of 10 years sustained therapy at high stimulation settings with no manufacturer-imposed shut-off date.
The Libra™ and LibraXP™ IPGs have the highest battery capacity in their respective classes – 40% more than their closest alternatives.
All DBS | Advance IPGs are designed to deliver consistent, effective therapy to patients without sacrificing IPG longevity.
Improved therapy compliance
The Brio rechargeable IPG provides simple and reliable recharging:
Large coupling target makes it easy to establish and maintain optimal coupling at depths of up to 2.5 cm.
Long intervals between recharges.
Sustaining effective therapy
DBS | Advance constant current technology regulates current to automatically compensate for changes in tissue impedance:
Stimulation is continuously monitored, and adjusted within microseconds, to maintain a consistent volume of tissue activated.
Consistent stimulation over the long-term may reduce the need for re-programming visits.
inomed planning software - iPS
Accurate and precise planning is essential for all forms of neurosurgery that require targeting structures in the brain. For example, targeting the STN for DBS procedures requires that the target is identified and a precise and accurate trajectory is defined for use with stereotactic devices >>. In order to achieve this, it is essential that a high-precision and easy-to-use planning tool is employed. The inomed iPS software is such a tool, enabling the clinician to easily assemble all of the necessary imaging modalities and create an optimum set of planning coordinates to target the area of interest.
State-of-the-art imaging techniques in combination with developments in the field of IT have led to breakthroughs in stereotactic and functional neurosurgery. These technologies have enabled accurate and tissue-sparing interventions in the human brain. All the planning tasks are carried out by the inomed iPS planning system.

Stereotactic systems from inomed
inomed continues the tradition of uncompromising precision in stereotactic tools
Modern functional neurosurgery procedures are now so minimally invasive that they have to be planned and performed with the highest degree of precision. The inomed stereotactic systems are defined by their reliability, precision and stability in their overall function. The fact that the work of the surgeon and the OR team is so simplified - because inomed’s systems are so easy to operate - is one of the qualities of inomed’s stereotactic systems that our customers appreciate most.
To date, there are no other systems on the market that are more convenient or have higher precision than the stereotactic systems created by inomed. The following reasons will help to explain why
RM – the most accurate stereotactic system in the world High-precision from Germany: The inomed RM system
The Riechert Mundinger (RM) system is the only stereotactic system on the market with three fixation points. This gives the device a very high level of stability and precision. The RM is regarded to be the most precise stereotactic system in the world and, with its unique design, provides uncompromised accuracy in stereotactic surgery.
The RM system from inomed is based on the polar coordinate principle. This concept was developed by the two well-known stereotactic experts, Prof. Traugott Riechert and Prof. Fritz Mundinger. The RM aiming arm with its probe mount delivers a high level of mechanical precision. A wide range of accessories ensure that the RM system delivers universal application for the modern stereotaxy service.
Polar coordinate system, with 5 setting parameters allowing for extremely high precision
Three fixation points for unmatched stability
Trepanation in the target direction
MicroDrive with depth sensor for micro-electrode recording (MER)
The inomed target point simulator – Stereotaxic phantom
Recommended by leading neurosurgeons – inomed target point simulator (Phantom)
The stereotactic target point simulator from inomed, also referred to as a phantom, is a unique product and only available from inomed. Professors Riechert and Mundinger, globally recognized pioneers in neurosurgery, have developed the phantom alongside the development of the RM >> stereotactic system. The target point simulator has become internationally established and is regarded by leading neurosurgeons to be an essential and recommended tool for planning and conducting complex operations on the brain. The use of the phantom becomes especially significant for the highly complex neuromodulation (DBS) techniques.

Stereotactic biopsy for the brain
inomed delivers the best instrument for every biopsy requirements
When the diagnosis of a brain tumor is uncertain, a stereotactic biopsy can provide clarity and confidence. To ensure that such clarity and confidence is delivered during a biopsy, inomed offers a sophisticated set of biopsy instruments for intra-operative stereotactic surgery >>.
From an evidence-based perspective, histopathological diagnosis of a brain tumor is the method with the highest accuracy rate for classifying a tumor. In this sense, stereotactic biopsy is the best method of treatment, especially for smaller and more deeply-seated lesions. This is considered to be the best way to classify a lesion accurately, and only this way can each and every patient receive the optimal treatment for their specific disease.
