Checkpoint Surgical Launches CHECKPOINT GEMINI Bipolar Nerve Stimulator for Precise Stimulation

Oct 31, 2022

Checkpoint Surgical today announced the addition of CHECKPOINT GEMINI ™ to the company’s industry-leading line of intraoperative nerve stimulators. An addition to the company’s flagship CHECKPOINT Nerve Stimulator Portfolio , Checkpoint Gemini is designed to deliver more precise stimulation. “This expansion of Checkpoint Surgical’s stimulator portfolio ensures that we provide the surgeon with the optimal solution for clinical nerve procedures.,” said Derek Lewis, President, and CEO of Checkpoint Surgical. “Checkpoint Gemini complements our existing stimulators with a device optimized for precise nerve surgeries.” While CHECKPOINT GUARDIAN ™ offers the clinical versatility to locate nerves through dense tissue and assess motor nerve function, the new Checkpoint Gemini allows more precise direct nerve stimulation even at the fascicular level. Gemini has been designed to provide surgeons greater clarity to determine which fascicle within a nerve is responsible for which response. Checkpoint Gemini’s precision is made possible by the device’s innovative bipolar probe design, which focuses the energy delivered into a small area. This is in comparison to the monopolar probe of the Checkpoint Guardian, which delivers a broader field of stimulation. Checkpoint Gemini’s focused stimulation at 32Hz, provides a tetanic muscle response, even on fast-twitch muscle tissue such as that found in the face or pediatric anatomy.
