NIMBUS i-Care Lite - IntraOperative Neurostimulator

With the NIMBUS i-Care Lite, your surgical team will be able to stimulate the central and peripheral nervous system of the patient.

Our users have trusted and proven the effectiveness of the NIMBUS range of products for over 22 years. Numerous scientific publications mention its use in the operating room and demonstrate its daily safety.

 

Neurostimulator – To secure the surgical results

Daily use of the intraoperative neurostimulator contributes to securing surgical and postoperative results, particularly in neurosurgery.

The preconfigured parameters of the NIMBUS i-Care Lite, intraoperative neurostimulator ensure its safe use and improve the operability of the surgical team. They have been defined based on scientific literature and user experience in order to help:

  • locate the functional areas of the cortex and subcortex via direct electrical stimulation;
  • locate and check the integrity of nerve fibers (peripheral nerves) via direct electrical stimulation.

To meet these different needs, the NIMBUS i-Care Lite intraoperative neurostimulator offers two main configurations:

The surgical team audibly follows the transmission of stimulation into the patient in real time. Upon stimulation of peripheral nerves, muscle-specific reactions can validate the location of the nerve.

Intraoperative neurostimulation with NIMBUS i-Care Lite guarantees the quality of results by preserving false negatives and positives through continuous impedance monitoring.

 

NIMBUS i-Care Lite – Combines the specificity and simplicity of everyday neurosurgery

The NIMBUS i-Care Lite device offers the ability to locate functional areas of the cortex and subcortex by direct electrical stimulation. It can also help locate, verify the integrity of, and sever or preserve peripheral nerves. For over 22 years, the NIMBUS i-Care Lite has been used in many applications dedicated to neurosurgery and offers robustness (10 years of service lifetime), specificity, and ease of use.

Customizable settings can be created for more expert teams to help improve the usability of the NIMBUS i-Care. Quick access to the main menu allows users to immediately select the desired mode and speed up installation. The simplicity of the user interface and the limited number of menus makes it easy for surgical teams to learn quickly.

Total flexibility is offered thanks to the choice of stimulation mode, the characterization of the type of emitted signal, and the parameters of use. A diverse range of monopolar, bipolar, and tripolar stimulation probes, both straight and angled, complete the flexibility of the NIMBUS i-Care and offer many choices to surgeons. Thus, surgeons can adapt the selectivity of the stimulation probe according to her/his needs and the patient’s anatomy.

 

INNOPSYS support and NIMBUS network – For knowledge optimization

INNOPSYS’s experienced staff trains medical teams in the optimal use of the NIMBUS i-Care, neurostimulators, and intraoperative neuromonitoring. These face-to-face trainings promote the sharing of experiences. Remote refreshment sessions can also be scheduled.

The INNOPSYS team also supports your staff remotely for all help and instant diagnostic requests related to the use of the NIMBUS i-Care.

The network of renowned users of the i-Care range offers opportunities to share experiences and information, and to improve cooperation between international services. Visits to the operating room for advanced surgeries can also be arranged
