Peripheral Nerve Stimulators.

Advanced Pain Relief Technology.

Peripheral Nerve Stimulators, often referred to as PNS, represent cutting-edge advancements in neuromodulation therapy. These innovative devices offer a safer approach to pain management by eliminating the need for implanted batteries, which can introduce new pain, increase surgical procedures, or fail, potentially posing risks to patients.

Key Features:

  • Battery-Free Operation: Unlike traditional Implantable Pulse Generators (IPGs) that require implanted batteries, PNS devices operate without the need for an internal power source. This reduces the risk of battery-related complications and ensures consistent therapy.
  • Full-Body MRI Compatibility: PNS devices are designed to be fully MRI conditional, allowing patients to undergo imaging procedures without device-related concerns (Refer to the IFU for specific MR conditions and instructions).
  • External Transmitter: These devices utilize an externally worn transmitter for power and control. This transmitter is easily rechargeable, ensuring uninterrupted therapy and providing individualized programming options to tailor pain relief to the patient’s specific needs.

How Peripheral Nerve Stimulators Work:


The PNS neurostimulator, which includes metal electrodes near the tip, generates an electrical field when powered. This electrical energy helps block pain signals originating from target nerves.

Wireless Power

An external transmitter, worn by the patient, wirelessly powers the PNS neurostimulator. This transmitter couples radiofrequency (RF) energy, allowing various programming options that can be customized for each patient.


Each patient receives a personalized Transmitter Assembly that delivers power specifically to their implanted receiver. This ensures that the device functions optimally for the individual.

Treatment Process

  • Trial Period: Before permanent implantation, a trial period is typically conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of PNS therapy for chronic pain.
  • Permanent Implantation: If the trial period results in significant pain relief (greater than 50%), a permanent PNS neurostimulator is implanted.
  • Patient Control: Patients have control over their pain relief through personalized therapy settings in their Transmitter Assembly.
  • Optimization: A Clinical Representative, using an iOS-based Programmer, can provide advanced programming options to enhance pain relief further.
  • Improved Quality of Life: With the therapy offered by Peripheral Nerve Stimulators, patients often experience relief from chronic pain, improved mobility, and an overall better quality of life.

PNS therapy is covered by most insurance carriers, and patients are encouraged to consult with their physicians to learn more about this innovative pain management solution.
