The Nerveäna®

The Nerveäna® combines a nerve stimulator and an electromyographic (EMG) monitor into an integrated surgical tool. A surgical instrument, enhanced to become a monopolar probe, continuously applies a stimulation pulse to soft tissue while the EMG monitor detects, interprets and records muscle response evoked by stimulation. Once an evoked EMG is identified, the Nerveäna® produces an audio alarm allowing the surgeon to maintain attention on the surgical field. The Nerveäna® significantly reduces nerve location time while improving patient safety and decreasing surgeon stress during difficult dissections.
