Sierra Summit® is a flexible and full-featured electrodiagnostic system designed for reliable and efficient EDX testing. Sierra® 4 software is designed to improve examination efficiency and accuracy, minimize patient discomfort, and expand clinical capabilities with a simple interface.
Sierra software offers industry-leading trace resolution, advanced artifact reduction, real-time comparisons, and an optimized user experience with personalized workflows, test setups, and display options.
Common disorders assessed by EDX
EDX medicine is a subspecialty of clinical neurophysiology, neurology, physiatry, urology, and neuroscientific research. EDX testing is often indicated for low back or neck pain, or numbness, pain or weakness in the arms or legs. Muscle and nerve disorders, dysfunctions, and diseases that can be assessed by electrodiagnostic testing include:
- Pinched nerves
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Myasthenia gravis
- Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy
Cart-based and mobile electrodiagnostic testing
Cadwell has developed a variety of configurations to meet the needs of electromyographers in every testing environment.
As an alternate solution, you can enable transport of the Sierra Summit for mobile practices with a wheeled travel case featuring a retractable handle.
EDX with Ultrasound
The unique features and options of the EMG Cart help ensure an optimal solution for integrated ultrasound in an EDX workflow.
The Fuzion Cart is a lightweight, height-adjustable cart solution for hospitals, clinics, and private practices.
Clinical solutions for information management in electrodiagnostic medicine
CadLink Information Management enables secure and efficient access to clinical information across multiple computers. With CadLink, you can access EMG information when and where you need it. CadLink helps deliver efficient workflow, quality data, and easy reporting. It stores patient records and reports, manages user access, and can support HL7 interfacing and automatic archiving.
Our EDX History
We’ve revolutionized electrodiagnostic medicine. More than once.
Cadwell Industries, Inc. began in 1979 with the invention of the world’s first microprocessor-controlled EMG, the Cadwell 7000. Since then, Cadwell has developed and supported the 7000, the 7200, the 5200, the 7400, the 5200A, the CTS5000, the Quantum 84, the MES10, the Excel, the 6200A, the Excel Plus, and the Sierra line.
Cadwell responded to the need for smaller, portable units when an Alaskan physician requested an EMG system that could fit beneath the seat in his small airplane. In July 1994, Cadwell sent a modified Quantum 84 into space on the Space Shuttle Columbia as part of the Second International Microgravity Laboratory. It was the only piece of medical equipment on the mission that worked, and scientists all over the world studied data collected on the Cadwell machine.
The Sierra line was introduced in 1993 and includes the original Sierra, the SierraLT, the Sierra II Wedge, the Sierra Wave, and now the Sierra Summit. The Sierra Summit, released in 2013, is one of our most dynamic neurophysiology diagnostic systems, with capabilities and features evolving in response to new technology and to accommodate new clinical practice.
In 2018, Cadwell became the first and remains the only, company to offer a fully integrated ultrasound solution for concurrent electrodiagnostic procedures. Today, Cadwell is working in tandem with some of the world’s leading physicians and teaching hospitals and leading the charge in neurodiagnostic technology capabilities in EMG, nerve conduction, evoked potentials, ultrasound, and chemodenervation.
Cadwell is still family owned and wholly focused on neurophysiology. We stay true to our mission of helping you help others, by continuing to provide excellent diagnostic and monitoring systems, market-leading support, and secure data management.
