Renishaw is pleased to announce that a neuromate stereotactic robot system and neuroinspire surgical planning software have been installed at one of the world’s leading children’s hospitals, Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) in London, UK.

Martin Tisdall and Kristian Aquilina, consultant neurosurgeons at GOSH have already successfully used the systems for several Stereoelectroencephalography (stereo EEG) cases and stereotactic biopsies since the installation.

Tisdall said: “The Renishaw neuromate is a fantastic tool for stereoEEG implantation. It has allowed us to place electrodes with submillimetric accuracy and this, in combination with the neuroinspire software gives great confidence to the surgeon even when targeting complex trajectories. The service and support we have received from Renishaw has been second to none.”

Aquilina said: “Renishaw is a leading engineering company with a particular commitment to healthcare, especially for children and young people. Their numerous innovations have led to ground-breaking changes in deep brain stimulation, Parkinson’s disease and the direct delivery of chemotherapy into brain tumours. At Great Ormond Street Hospital the Renishaw neuromate robot has already led to significant improvements in the way we biopsy tumours in delicate regions of the brain, where submillimetric accuracy is vital. We look forward to a long-term productive collaboration with Renishaw for the benefit of children and young people, particularly those with currently incurable life threatening disease.”

Stuart Campbell, Clinical Sales and Development Manager of Renishaw plc, said: “The use of the Renishaw robot will contribute greatly towards the innovative procedures Great Ormond Street Hospital is developing for the treatment of epilepsy and neuro-oncology. Renishaw is very excited to be working with such a world class institution and pioneering neurosurgeons to develop better surgical procedures and solutions”.

Renishaw

A world leader in engineering technologies, Renishaw’s core skills in measurement and precision machining serve sectors as diverse as dimensional metrology, spectroscopy, machine calibration, motion control, dentistry and surgical robotics.

Sensors for co-ordinate measuring machines (CMMs) are an industry standard, from basic touch-trigger probes through to automated stylus and probe changers, motorised indexing probe heads, and revolutionary five-axis measurement systems.

Machine probes for CNC machine tools allow automated tool setting, workpiece set-up, in-cycle gauging and part inspection. Products include laser tool setters, contact tool setters, tool breakage detectors, touch probes and high accuracy inspection probes.

For motion control, Renishaw supplies laser encoders, optical linear encoders, optical angle encoders, optical rotary encoders, magnetic rotary encoders, magnetic chip encoders and magnetic linear encoders.

To analyse the static and dynamic performance of position-critical motion systems, Renishaw’s laser interferometer and environmental compensation system offers a linear measurement accuracy of 0.5 ppm, readings of up to 50 kHz and a linear measurement speed of up to 4 m/s, with a linear resolution of 1nm.

Renishaw’s Raman spectroscopy products exploit the Raman effect to identify and characterise the chemistry and structure of materials. A diverse range of analytical applications include pharmaceutical, forensic science, nanotechnology, biomedical and semiconductors.
