Deep brain stimulation

The WayPoint™ Navigator is a dynamic stereotactic planning and guidance system that personalizes and advances care for patients suffering from neurodegenerative disorders. The system can precisely position tools used for SEEG, DBS, and laser interstitial thermal therapy (LITT).

Epilepsy

For refractory epilepsy, diagnosis and treatment require a number of professionals to work together to achieve the ideal patient outcome. The WayPoint™ Navigator 4.5 enables neurosurgeons, epileptologists, and epilepsy monitoring unit staff to aggregate the broad range of data gathered as a patient transitions from diagnosis through treatment stages.
