Characterization of a Robotic Micro-surgical System for Small-animal Neurosurgery

Advancements in veterinary neurosurgery have led to brain imaging and more robust planning prior to surgical intervention. Using neuronavigation software, brain imaging allows the surgeon to explore critical structures ahead of the surgery and …

Neuroscience 2017

Neuroscience 2017 was held November 11-15 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC. More than 30,300 attendees convened in the U.S. capital city for the world’s largest marketplace of ideas and tools for global neuroscience.

Spotlight: Engineering Neuroscience Products

Rogue Research is an engineering innovation company that develops systems that revolutionize brain image visualization. Over 450 laboratories around the world use their Brainsight line of products for applications such as cognitive neuroscience, rehabilitation research, and veterinary services. Rogue Research Brainsight family of neuronavigation products can be thought of as a GPS, but instead of a vehicle traveling, they are used to guide something called Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation. Protocase has been working with Rogue Research over the past three years to provide high-quality sheet metal components for several of their products and internal prototypes.

Robotic Arm to Aid with Mental Health Treatment

TMS is approved for mental health treatment in Canada and has had promising results treating illnesses such as depression and schizophrenia. Rogue wanted to explore a robotic solution to complement their existing software and improve the accuracy of TMS treatment. Nicholas began researching how to develop a robotic arm that could be produced inexpensively and used in clinical settings - features not readily available with existing robotic arms. Ultimately, Rogue and Nicholas determined that manufacturing a robotic arm in-house would be too expensive, so they’re now exploring the project with a local robotics company.
