PediGuard® is the only device that can consistently and accurately predict cortical wall perforations during pedicle preparation. It uses the conductivity of tissue around the bipolar tip of the probe (device) to accurately predict the type of tissue that the device is being inserted into.
The surgeon receives continuous and real time information via the changes in pitch and cadence of an audio signal and a flashing LED light.
This parameter allows for discrimination between different materials in the vertebral body. The PediGuard® technology is available in a wide range of shapes and sizes of probes to suit a surgeon’s preference.
The Curved PediGuard® offers a curved working end that allows the surgeon to redirect.
Features a detachable electronic handle that can be mounted on a custom made jamshidi needle (trocar and bevel tip) with propriety sensors to give a surgeon continues and real-time feedback.
