Mizuho Six-point fixation metal and carbon fiber head frames provide completely integrated neurosurgery workstations.
The multi-purpose Head Frame has been devised as an auxiliary operating device in microneurosurgery. The device positively fixes a patient’s head during the operation. Head Frame Assembly The Basal Frame is mounted on top of a Head Holder over the sterile drapes. The Basal Frame has five separate positions spaced at 35° angles where self-retaining retractors may be attached using thumb screws. At each end of the Basal Frame are two holes to support the Hand Rests and Instrument Receptacle. The angle and height of the Hand Rests are adjustable to suit each individual surgeon. The Insulated Instrument Receptacle is attached at one of the holes on the end of the Basal Frame and may be used to retain bipolar forceps, hemostatic forceps, suction tubes or other micro-surgery instruments. The semicircular Bar mounted on the Basal Frame is used to attach the Scalp Hooks, Cotton Plate or, at times, a self-retaining retractor.
