Software, Physiologic Monitoring, Neurology
Definition : Physiologic monitoring software designed to operate neurology monitors, control/monitor a limited number of their functions, and/or process data obtained while monitoring. This software is intended to work only with one or a few models of neurology monitors, usually from the same manufacturer. The software may perform a variety of algorithms to facilitate the operation and analysis of the measurements performed while monitoring neurologic parameters such as evoked potentials (EP), electromyography (EMG), electroencephalography (EEG) and/or neuromuscular block response and/or while processing and/or transmitting/receiving patient information from workstations, and/or hospital information systems. Neurologic output monitoring software is not usually available separate from the monitor but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the equipment; the software is mainly used by bedside and telemetric monitors, and/or physiologic monitoring systems. Dedicated software is available to measure all or several EP, EMG, and EEG parameters.

Medtronic Spinal and Biologics
Spinal and Biologics is Medtronic's second-largest business. Our market leadership is largely a result of our innovation: we're developing many of the new standards of care in spinal and musculoskeletal therapies. We collaborate with world-renowned surgeons, researchers, and innovative partners to offer state-of-the-art therapies for spinal, neurological, orthopedic, and oral maxillofacial conditions.
In 1984 an idea was born: empower medical professionals with the ability to quickly and easily perform non-invasive nerve conduction tests at the point of care (POC). That objective went from concept to reality through a collaborative effort between NeuMed and the University of Iowa. Decades later, NeuMed is proud of this pioneering accomplishment as well as the commitment to design excellence and innovation. From our strong understanding of neurodiagnostic science, electrical engineering, embedded software systems, and information technology (IT) NeuMed has been recognized for its accuracy, reliability, and efficacy by a multitude of prestigious institutions. The traditional (or conventional) nerve conduction methodology is simply the most trusted in medicine and has always been the foundation of NeuMed's NCS-Monitors. Our technology is so accurate and reliable that it is used globally by endocrinologists, hand surgeons, internal medicine, neurologists, orthopaedists, physiatrists, podiatric surgeons, primary care physicians, occupational medicine clinics, and rheumatologists.
