ClearPoint Neuro is excited to announce the launch of the Inflexion Head Frame for customers in the U.S. and EU. The Inflexion Head Frame is designed for use as a device clamp to hold the patient’s head in a particular position for procedures requiring magnetic resonance imaging of the brain structure and targets. Inflexion is also classified as a head fixation frame (HFF) designed for versatile pinning within the diagnostic-only and intraoperative MRI environment. This device can be used for any of the neurosurgery procedures that are currently empowered by the ClearPoint Neuro Navigation System.
The Inflexion™ Head Frame
Inflexion allows more efficient and safer workflows as it is designed for the MRI environment and is capable of rotation, height adjustment, and flexion/extension while the patient is fixed to the MR table – yielding better accuracy. It allows for better patient positioning within an IMRIS magnet for optimal, distortion-free imaging. The head frame fits most Siemens, Phillips, GE, and IMRIS scanners.
The Inflexion Head Frame is fixed at 4 to 8 points in four locations in the “Z” direction. There is a maximum of 6 pending posts and 13 post-positions when the optional upper ring is installed. Additionally, there are short, medium, long, and extra-long fixation screws that are included with the head frame. Patients may be positioned prone, supine, or lateral with full 360⁰ rotation. The optional upper head fixation rings allows for traditional halo-like head immobilization. It also has flexible positioning with +/-19 degrees in flexion and extension.
