Cascade intraoperative neuromonitoring devices have led the market in general spine and cranial procedures for 15 years
IONM, neurophysiological monitoring, intraoperative neuromonitoring
Surgeries are inherently risky, especially those that involve the brain, spinal cord, or nerves. Intraoperative neuromonitoring (IONM) is performed during many different types of surgeries to reduce the risk of devastating, irreversible neurological deficits, such as muscle weakness, loss of sensation, hearing loss and impairment of essential bodily functions.
IONM involves multi-modal recording of electrical potentials from the nervous system during operations to detect adverse changes, enable corrective action, and offer surgical guidance. Cadwell’s line of Cascade IONM machies are the culmination of nearly two decades of innovation, experience and investment. Cascade IONM is the future of IONM.
The Cascade IOMAX is a compact, robust intraoperative neuromonitoring system designed to withstand daily use and the environmental hazards of the operating room. Its modular design lets users tailor each IONM setup to the specific requirements of different surgeries.
The Cascade PRO can be customized for 16 or 32 channels with external amplifiers. Extender pod shielding reduces noise and provides surge protection. The component can be portable or cart based, and supports the TCS-4 and TCS-1000 transcranial stimulators and the ES-IX 2 stimulator.
The Cascade Elite’s 32-channel built-in amplifier with 64 inputs is encased in a robust, waterproof aluminum case that allows flexible placement options. The Elite supports TCS-4 and the TCS-1000, Cadwell’s electrical stimulator boxes, and the ES-IX 2 sitmulator.
