Optimal outcomes rely on making finely tuned surgical decisions. Understanding nerve function at the fascicular level may mean the difference between ambiguity and certainty. The CHECKPOINT GEMINI™ Bipolar Nerve Stimulator delivers focused stimulation of specific nerves and fascicles, allowing the surgeon to take actions based on the most precise information available.
Selecting the correct CHECKPOINT® Stimulator will depend on its clinical application. All Checkpoint Stimulators use a biphasic waveform that is safe for prolonged or repeated stimulation without diminished response. Beyond this, key differences between the CHECKPOINT GUARDIAN™ and CHECKPOINT GEMINI™ Stimulators will guide your selection.
The CHECKPOINT GEMINI™ Bipolar Nerve Stimulator is a single-use, sterile device intended to provide electrical stimulation of exposed motor nerves or muscle tissue to locate and identify nerves and to test nerve and muscle excitability. Do not use this Stimulator when paralyzing anesthetic agents are in effect, as an absent or inconsistent response to stimulation may result in inaccurate assessment of nerve and muscle function. For a complete list of warnings and precautions regarding the use of the Stimulator, please consult the Instructions for Use.
