ANT Neuro visor2*

Complete solution for navigated rTMS, functional mapping and combined EEG-EMG-TMS

visor2™ is the complete solution for the most advanced research in neuromodulation and allows users to accurately evaluate functional organization of the human cortex using non-invasive, navigated transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).

It comes with an accurate real-time 3D neuronavigation, simultaneous EEG-TMS recording and intuitive step-by-step workflows for functional mapping. The visor2 solution supports a broad range of TMS stimulation coils and can be adapted to specific fields of applications and available budget.

visor2™ is available in different configurations depending on your needs

  • Basic: the compact visor2 basic is an ideal tool for routine use where straight-forward and swift operation is a must for the reproduction of rTMS application. It supports the use of a standard MRI head model or individual MRI import and provides a complete set of functions for precise and easy-to-use navigated TMS.

  • Premium: the visor2 premium configuration integrates navigated TMS-EMG recordings (2-, 6- and 8- channel EMG) with real-time 3D visualization of stimulated brain areas for accurate motor mapping. It comes with the full neuronavigation software package including segmentation and head modelling features for navigation with individual MRI’s and dual-coil navigation support. It also enables colored DICOM export of mapped functional hotspots for further review and processing.

  • Multimodal: the visor2 multimodal configuration has all features to satisfy even the most demanding research requirements for combined EEG-EMG-TMS recordings (2-, 6- and 8- channel EMG). It delivers all functionality of visor2 premium like dual coil navigation and colored DICOM export. On top of that, visor2 multimodal license allows combined EEG-TMS recordings with 64 EEG channels and 6 EMG-channels.

  • Mapping: the visor2 mapping solution integrates multi-channel EMG mapping of motor function with individual MRI and colored export to DICOM images. It allows highly intuitive navigation over targeted brain areas and combines synchronized video-audio, visual objection presentation and support for repetitive TMS in a flexible mapping workflow of language-eloquent cortex.
