Abstract:
    The Stereotaxic Instrument would incorporate an innovative holder assembly design accomplishing ultra precision at a relatively cheaper price range unlike the commercially available ones.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Modification over the traditional stereotaxic instrument with precision(1mm); the ultra-precise version of these stereotaxics make them ideal for use in surgery where high-accuracy positioning is required. The holder would incorporate drill, syringe and electrode which serves as an advancement.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Local lab product to be used in our human systems lab. It can also be commercially produced for use in research for biomedical sciences/engineering fields to study brain activity.
How will the solution works
    The concept design current being worked on would incorporate an electromechanical stage. The X,Y,Z movement would be accomplished by three servo motors. A dental drill of high rpm and low torque to be used. Prospective Atlas Integration on computer with software configuration for choice of mouse or rat installed; image processing implementation to accurately map out the operational area.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    -Integration of stage, motors and accessories resulting in a comprehensive system -Accuracy and efficiency that creates confidence and lowers costs -The novelty in holder would appeal to a wide range of potential users considering its simplicity -Appropriate setup to encompass software configuration
