Making changes to routine systems and processes used in hospitals and clinics can be very disruptive and time consuming. Careful consideration needs to be given prior to making such fundamental changes.  

For a department that wants to become familiar with the basics of intraoperative neuromonitoring or microelectrode recording and stimulation, without substantially interfering with existing departmental processes straightaway, inomed can offer the opportunity of trying out the benefits of our products with support from the inomed Neuro Care Unit. An in-department, detailed and practical product and technical evaluation can be made with the support of our subject matter experts. In addition to practical and clinical expertise, we can offer the use of our complete range of IOM and Micro Electrode Recording systems as a part of the process.

We look forward to receiving your enquiry at incu(at)inomed.com
