Invisible Trial System for SCS and DRG

  • Abbott Proclaim DRG Recharge Free Neurostimulation System

    Dorsal Root Ganglion (DRG) therapy is a therapy designed to manage difficult-to-treat- chronic pain in specific areas of the lower body due to CRPS or causalgia in the foot, knee or groin.  Pain in those areas is sometimes related to a cluster of nerves called the dorsal root ganglia (DRG).

    Proclaim™ DRG Neurostimulator Systen can provide proved therapy to aid in treatment of chronic pain.

    A Simple 3-Part System

    The Proclaim™ DRG Neurostimulator System includes just three components:

    • Generator:  a small device that sends out mild electrical pulses and that contains a battery.  This is implanted in the body
    • Leads: thin insulated wires that carry the electrical pulses from the generator to the dorsal root ganglia.  These are placed in the body in the area of the DRG
    • Patient Controller: a handheld “remote control” that allows you to adjust the strength of stimulation or even turn stimulation off
  • Abbott Prodigy MRI Rechargeable System

    The Prodigy MRI™ SCS System delivers effective pain relief through spinal cord stimulation (SCS) using Abbott’s smallest implantable pulse generator (IPG).  It’s small, discreet and available with Abbott’s proprietary BurstDR™ stimulation, a new technology that’s clinically proven to provide better pain relief than traditional neurostimulation.

  • St Jude™ Medical Invisible Trial System for SCS and DRG

    The Invisible Trial System for spinal cord simulation (SCS) and Dorsal Root Ganglion (DRG) is an easy way to try out SCS or DRG with your doctor’s supervision.  The discreet, temporary system uses a small external generator that easily hides under clothing.  Therapy can be adjusted wirelessly using a familiar Apple† iPod Touch†controller.  The trial device doesn’t need to be implanted and can be easily removed, so it’s a great way to try out the treatment before a full implant.™

    A Simple 3-Part System

    Our invisible trial system includes just three parts; an external pulse generator (EPG), thin insulated wires called leads and a digital patient controller

    • EPG: a compact device that sends small electric pulses to the leads
    • Leads: thin wires that deliver the EPG’s stimulating electrical pulses to nerves along the spinal cord
    • Patient Controller: a handheld device that lets you adjust your therapy wirelessly.  The invisible trial system for SCS and DRG uses an Apple† iPod Touch† mobile digital device
