SpineGuard - France
SpineGuard’s mission is to help surgeons MAKE SPINE SURGERY SAFER while developing smart devices derived from their DSG™ (Dynamic Surgical Guidance) platform for spine surgery for the benefit of patients, surgeons, operating room staff and health care providers.
The PediGuard® probes are the only devices that incorporate the DSG™ Technology. These probes are the only stand-alone, handheld devices that can detect possible vertebral cortex perforation during pedicle preparation for screw placement. The PediGuard® probes can alert the surgeons prior to a breach by accurately analyzing the electrical conductivity of the surrounding tissues in real time. This, in turn, can prevent a cortical breach, and also help the surgeons to redirect the probe and advance down the desired path.
