The Perfect User-Oriented System

Stabilizer / Stepper / Template

Stepper (2), New Stabilizer (3), Fixation device adapts to rail of any OR Table (5)


The precision stepper (image above) enables the user to advance and retract an endo-rectal ultrasound probe in the rectum to image the prostate.

  • The endo-rectal probe is inserted into and fixed to the stepper and positioned by moving the stepper/probe combinatio
  • Any endo-rectal probe from any producer can be fit to the stepper.
  • Probe can be rotated around the probe´s long axis (± 45°). The probe locks into the adjustable center position.
  • Movable length of the probe with the stepper: 100 mm
  • Scale for position recognition.
  • Step width: 2,5 mm or 5 mm selectable as well as free analog movement  in and out of the rectum
  • Additional free analogue movement of the probe to define the exact stating point for stepwise movement: 50 mm
  • Template is movable (100 mm) in the direction parallel to the ER probe´s long axis and can be fixed in any position.


  • Needle guide grid system for brachytherapy needles: Matrix of 13 x 13 individual channels (all channels for 18 Gauge needles - standard)

  • 2 nomenclatures (reversible) of the needle channel rows: 1 to 7 (every second row with number, front side of template) or 0 to 12 (every row with number, back side of template)

  • Row spacing: 5 mm in both cases

  • 2 nomenclatures (reversible) of the needle channel columns: A to G (every second row with letter, front side of template) or A to M (every row with letter, back side of template)

  • Column spacing: 5 mm in both cases

  • The template is made of a material used for implants - PEEK. It is thus fully bio-compatible.

  • Sterilisable: for at least 200 repeat sterilisations, with steam at 115°C - 140°C (pressure 2 to 3 bar), Can be heated in air up to 200°C for a indefinite period of time

  • Template size: approx. 150 x 76 x 20 mm (H x W x D)


  • Device that supports the stepper. The stabilizer can be connected to the guide rails of any OR table by a specific fixation device. The stabilizer and stepper can be moved and positioned manually by the integrated handle and fixed or loosened in its position in space by turning one knob.

OR Table Adapter

  •    This device is needed to fasten the stabilizer to an application table or cystoscopy chair. Adapters for Philips LDME table or table HMT (Type PST 153/ PST 163) or for Schmitz (Type 211.276, 200.408) are available. Adapters for other tables can be custom made according to the table specifications. A custom adaptation to any table or chair is also possible.

All components can be disinfected. The stepper is fully submersible in a disinfectant liquid.
