IMRIS neurosurgical HFD rocker arm receives FDA clearance
MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 11, 2014 - IMRIS Inc. (NASDAQ: IMRS; TSX: IM) ("IMRIS" or the "Company") today announced a new rocker arm accessory that expands choices for neurosurgeons to select the best fixation suited for patients during procedures using intraoperative imaging inside the VISIUS Surgical Theatre. The accessory recently received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
The new rocker arm accessory provides more flexibility for the surgeon to stabilize, support and position patient heads with varying cranial anatomy, sizes and conditions using the MRI-compatible IMRIS HFD. When attached to the head fixation device (HFD) - a clamp-like device - the rocker arm helps to reduce the pressure on the individual contact points on the patient's skull.
