General Information

The FLEXIBILITY OR Head Holder & 8-Ch Coil is the established neurosurgery solution for intraoperative MRI: It ensures that the head is safely stabilized during your open skull surgery. Additionally, you benefit from the excellent image quality of the field-proven NORAS OR head coil system.

Besides the three-point fixation in the lateral plane, you have the option of using up to seven fixation points. You can adjust FLEXIBILITY both in height and move it along the head-foot axis, which makes it much easier for you to position the patient on the OR table. Our head holder system also allows you to individually adjust it to the respective head size of the patient.

For optimal access to the intervention area, the headbow can be swiveled, rotated and tilted. Thanks to the unique sterile concept, you do not need to sterilize neither cables nor coils.

The NORAS FLEXIBILITY OR Head Holder enables you to fix the skull in the supine, prone and lateral position of the patient. FLEXIBILITY is suitable for "deep brain stimulation" (DBS), minimally invasive pituitary surgery and awake craniotomy and is compatible with various surgical instruments.

  • Brain biopsy
  • Neurosurgery
  • Awake craniotomy
  • Pediatric applications
