Patients

Adhering to the Novalis Standard is beneficial beyond the actual technology and scientific community. Brainlab, the brand behind Novalis, has committed itself to make medical technology and knowledge more impactful and accessible to physicians and their patients. This is why we provide a wealth of educational material for our Novalis partners and their patients.

Brainlab.org Patient Website

Brainlab.org is a place for patients to learn, explore, and equip their brain with health information. At Brainlab.org the focus is sharing the combined knowledge of medical technologists, expert physicians, experienced patients and their advocates. We all need information about our health, but at times, the information patients surf, find and read is difficult to understand. It is important to understand the technologies doctors are using so they can may make more informed decisions about their treatment and feel like part of the process. The goal, at Brainlab.org, is to demystify health conditions, support how they make people feel, and provide useable information on medical technology that can help.
