ADEPT (Assisted Determination of Electrode Position and Therapy) is a system that will greatly improve both surgery and outcomes for people living with Parkinson’s disease.

ADEPT is used during Deep Brain Stimulation surgery to guide accurate implantation of electrodes and to guide settings to use for chronic therapy. This includes enabling surgery to be performed under general anaesthesia.
