Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) for the treatment of patients with drug refractory epilepsy by stimulation of the nerve responsible for relaying messages between the brain and certain parts of the body. That way, VNS Therapy helps control the type of brain activity that often leads to seizures without any brain surgery.
With VNS the patient feel fewer and less
severe seizures, shorter recovery time from seizures, improved mood & decrease in dose or number of epilepsy medications.
VNS is also efficient for treatment of chronic drug refractory depression patients.
Impulse Dynamics - CCM
Cardiac Contractility Modulation (CCM) is an innovative technology for treating moderate to severe heart failure, by delivering non-excitatory electrical pulses to the heart.
Research has shown that CCM signals significantly improve the heart’s contractility by modifying the function and expression of certain proteins in the heart muscle and, through that, the function of the heart.
In fact, CCM is the only treatment that actually trains the heart.
European Clinical trials have shown that chronic CCM treatment is safe and significantly improves exercise tolerance and quality of life in symptomatic heart failure patients with normal QRS duration.
Abilia - EMFIT
The top selling seizure muscle contraction monitor and currently in use in over 60 countries worldwide. The Emfit MM is clinically proven technology for monitoring an individual who, during sleep, may experience faster, abnormal muscle jerkings that continue 10 seconds or longer. A quick, high-frequency alert allows a caregiver or family member ample time to respond. Easy to install, and no false alarms that can lead to user fatigue.
Bioness - StimRouter® Neuromodulation System
Bioness is the leading provider of innovative technologies helping people regain mobility and independence. Bioness solutions include functional electrical stimulation (FES) systems, robotic systems, and software-based therapy programs providing functional and therapeutic benefits for individuals affected by central nervous system disorders and orthopedic injuries.
The StimRouter PNS neuromodulation system is a permanent option that provides clinically proven relief for chronic peripheral pain, Overactive Bladder & Fecal Incontinence.
A small lead is implanted during a minimally invasive outpatient procedure. External Pulse Transmitter (EPT) delivers electrical signals through the skin to the implanted StimRouter lead. After the implant procedure and initial programming, patients are empowered to manage their symptoms using a wireless external programmer. The StimRouter neuromodulation system targets the source of your patients’ symptoms: the nerves. Because of its small profile, the StimRouter system can be implanted in various locations, depending on patient needs.
