Better diagnose hydrocephalus to maintain autonomy

X-PRESSURE is a medical device to measure cerebrospinal fluid pressure and circulation to better diagnose hydrocephalus.

Hydrocephalus is a treatable disease but difficult to diagnose.

Hydrocephalus is a cerebral disease caused by an increase of fluid volume in the brain.

Hydrocephalus is responsible for walking disorders, cognitive decline and urinary incontinence, that affect autonomy in the older person.

When hydrocephalus is suspected, a lumbar puncture is necessary to remove fluid, but this test is not sensitive enough. Accurate analysis of intracranial fluid  flow allows a better diagnosis of hydrocephalus.

To improve the performance of the lumbar puncture, X-PRESSURE allows the measurement of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) circulation at patient’s bedside.

Better diagnose hydrocephalus at patient's bedside

X-PRESSURE HAS BEEN DESIGNED TO :

  Complete in a simple way your lumbar puncture examination at bedside in a few minutes.

  Quantify cerebrospinal fluid circulation.

  Identify CSF disorders that are critical to diagnose hydrocephalus.

Based on published literature and routine clinical practice

How does it work?

#1

Connect X-PRESSURE sensor to the end of the lumbar puncture needle.

#2

Measure basal pressure.

#3

Slow injection of saline to explore cerebrospinal fluid circulation.

#4

Continuous measurement & recording on a secure mobile application.

#5

Analysis & interpretation of data using X-PRESSURE artificial intelligence.

IN A FEW MINUTES, YOU HAVE ALL THE KEY INFORMATION YOU NEED TO MAKE THE RIGHT DIAGNOSIS.

1 single lumbar pressure = 3 investigations

1. CSF biochemistry
2. CSF circulation by X-PRESSURE
3. CSF tap test

Time saving

Time to perform the examination :
10 to 15 minutes.

Improved clinical management

Early and reliable diagnosis, to better treat hydrocephalus and improve autonomy.

Post-operative follow-up

In vivo control of shunt function.
