More Channels, Enhanced Analysis, and Customizable Modular Design

The Guideline 5 is FHC’s next generation neuromodulation targeting system designed for both clinical and research applications. The system efficiently supports functional neurosurgery programs that address movement disorders, epilepsy, pain, and psychiatric disorders. New features allow you to maximize your micro and macro electrode channel count with expanded connection options and improved analytical tools.

The modular system may be purchased in a variety of configurations for your specific neurosurgical procedure needs. Options range from an entry-level base system for new DBS programs to integrated powerful systems for advanced centers of excellence that require additional features such as supplemental auxiliary channels for LFP, ECoG, and SEEG; general purpose digital inputs and outputs; and advanced visualization options.
