DryTouch

EMG Frazier Suction Tube

Monopolar EMG stimulation and delicate surgical suction combined. Ideal instrument for brain mapping, tumor resection and spine surgery.

Product Overview

DryTouch is a cross-functional surgical suction probe and EMG stimulation device. DryTouch supports surgeons to deliver a controlled, gentle suction. In addition, the Frazier design removes excess debris from confined surgical spaces and provides EMG stimulation. DryTouch also improves the surgical plan and creates an ideal real-time nerve monitoring space by blending these functions. Overall, DryTouch maintains a clear surgical field and reduces the potential current shunting of applied stimulation.

Product Features

Frazier Suction Integrated With EMG

DryTouch is a suction tube with a custom Frazier handle that delivers EMG stimulation for IONM neuromonitoring. The unique probe enables maximum control of suction and continuous monopolar stimulation to support a maximal tumor resection¹.

Enhanced Brain Mapping

The all-in-one device can improve suction control while identifying the critical areas related to the central and peripheral nervous system. DryTouch is approved to be used beneath the blood-brain barrier, providing real-time cortical and subcortical motor mapping.

Universal Interoperability

DryTouch stimulator probes have a pre-attached lead wire with a standard DIN connector that is compatible with Nerveäna or any nerve monitoring system.

The Frazier handpiece features a tapered connector that attaches to standard suction tubing. The unique design is universal and cost-effective.

Precise Suction and EMG Stimualtion

DryTouch’s EMG Frazier Suction Tubes offer comfort and precision for surgeons. Featuring an ergonomic handle shape and 30° bend, they provide improved visibility at the surgical site. The key-hole control valve allows for precise suction manipulation.

Available in lengths of 13 cm and 26 cm, and diameters from 5 French to 10 French, surgeons can select the ideal size for their needs.
DryTouch prioritizes flexibility, allowing surgeons to choose the best tools for their surgical plan.

Frequently Asked Questions
