About PediGuard (TM)
PediGuard is a drilling instrument that constantly monitors the
electrical conductivity of the tissue at its tip throughout the drilling
process. PediGuard measures and translates the electrical conductivity into
an audio and visual feedback. Its sensitivity allows the surgeon to know
whether the tip is in contact with cortical bone, cancellous bone, soft
tissues or blood. The surgeon is immediately informed through variations of
sound cadence, sound pitch and LED flashes, when and if the electrical
conductivity at the distal part of the instrument changes, thus helping the
surgeon to better control the surgical procedure.
