Epilepsy

CorTec supports operative treatment of epilepsy with °AirRay, an electrode for clinical diagnostics.

Our product range includes strip and grid electrodes in various designs and contact sizes.

Selection of Patients

Suitable candidates for operative treatment are generally patients suffering from focal epilepsies.

Surgery is often an option for patients with temporal lobe epilepsy refractory to treatment. A resection of the impaired brain tissue can also result in the successful treatment of other forms of focal epilepsies.

CorTec's Therapeutic Approach

With the °AirRay product family – strip and grid electrodes from our in-house production – CorTec focuses on invasive preoperative diagnostics.

Our goal is alleviation for patients. This is why our electrodes are particularly thin and flexible, requiring only a small number cables for the protection of cerebral tissue and to prevent complications.

At the same time, we want to provide neurologists and neurosurgeons with optimal results for diagnostics and research. Designs including micro-contacts deliver particularly detailed data.

Solution

With °AirRay, CorTec will shortly be offering a CE-certified assortment of strip and grid electrodes for clinical diagnostics and research.

Due to our special laser-based manufacturing process we are producing a particularly thin and flexible electrode. Additionally, °AirRay needs a smaller number of cables compared to previously available products.

Micro-contacts in various sizes help to increase diagnostic precision by yet another factor, making it possible to depict further research interests. The electrode’s flexibility is still retained.
