Orion LifeSpan™ MEG System

The Only MEG System that Spans Your Life Time

Our Unique Sensing System For “Lifespan”™ MEG Evaluation

  • The Compumedics Neuroscan Orion LifeSpan™ MEG system uses high 2nd generation axial gradiometers for increased signal to noise ratio
  • Maximum sampling rate of 10kHz, 24 bit resolution.
  • SQUID sensitivity of 3 fTrms/sqrt(Hz) at 100 Hz
  • 32 to 256 referential channels of simultaneous EEG, 4-16 bipolar channels, and 2-8 high level input channels of data can be acquired to complement the Orion LifeSpan MEG data

Our Hardware Advantage

  • The unique Orion LifeSpan MEG system is comprised of a dual headed dewar – one each for adults and pediatric patients 3-years old and under
  • Adult dewar contains 192 gradiometers; pediatric dewar contains 144 gradiometers
  • A specially designed chair which has been optimized for patient comfort and data taking
  • Helium reliquification system integrated into the Orion LifeSpan MEG system for reduced running costs
  • Small electronics footprint saves lab space, but also reduces electric power significantly

Our Software Advantage

  • Fully integrated data acquisition via CURRY
  • The latest Curry site license for the Orion LifeSpan™ lab – CURRY is the clinically accepted standard for MEG data analysis
  • STIM2 provides a fully integrated stimulus presentation for identification of eloquent cortex
  • The ability to offload data directly for research purposes provides greater flexibility

Our Development Roadmap

  • System designed for an 8-year development roadmap
  • Over 30 years of CURRY software development continues
  • Exciting upgradeable hardware possibilities with the Orion LifeSpan MEG platform
