Elekta and Nexstim have both chosen Innokas
Two customers that have turned to Innokas Medical for the multiple benefits that it offers are Elekta of Sweden, a provider of clinical solutions for treating cancer and brain disorders, and Nexstim, a Finnish pioneer in Navigated Brain Stimulation (NBS).
Elekta and Innokas Medical have worked together since 2007; under a recent multiyear agreement, Innokas is now responsible for manufacturing Elekta’s latest generation of magnetoencephalography (MEG) devices.

Used to determine the exact location of brain functions, such as sight or hearing, in the cerebral cortex and capable of establishing the timing of various events there to the nearest millisecond, these devices use low-temperature superconductors and are marketed globally, in Japan, the US, and Europe.
Featuring improved overall design, usability, and signal processing, the new MEG devices were developed with valuable input from Innokas Medical’s R&D experts. Following manufacture of the electronics and control systems at Innokas’ Kempele plant, final assembly and testing are carried out at the company’s Helsinki plant, which now includes a dedicated testing environment for MEG devices.
Under a new long-term contract with Nexstim, Innokas is also now responsible for sourcing, manufacturing, assembling, testing, and delivering Nexstim’s NBS System 4, as well as its new NexSpeech® module and TMS II stimulator coils.
NBS System 4 is Nexstim’s latest generation of non-invasive direct cortical mapping technology for clinical neurosurgery and clinical research. Fully selfcontained and mobile, the new system is very compact, with a footprint of less than 0.6 m2; while NexSpeech® extends its capabilities into presurgical speech mapping and offers a more intuitive and less costly method than fMRI.
The switch to Innokas forms part of Nexstim’s increasing focus on new therapy products and will bring improved production control, while maintaining high quality standards.
