St Jude Medical launches Proclaim Elite spinal cord stimulation system in Europe

4th December 2015

St Jude Medical has announced the European launch of its groundbreaking new Proclaim Elite spinal cord stimulation (SCS) system.

The device is billed as the world's first and only upgradeable and non-rechargeable SCS system approved to deliver burst stimulation, as well as including conditional magnetic resonance labelling to allow patients to undergo MRI scans.

Its non-rechargeable design provides extra convenience, with its ease of use enhanced further by its incorporation of Bluetooth wireless technology and compatibility with Apple mobile digital devices for control.

Since it offers traditional SCS and burst stimulation in one system, the device can improve outcomes and provide options for patients who do not initially respond to traditional SCS therapy, or who might lose pain relief over time.

Dr Allen Burton, medical director of neuromodulation and vice-president of medical affairs at St Jude Medical, said: "With the launch of this device, we are transforming the standard of care by packaging a series of important benefits into a single SCS device."

The company also received US regulatory approval for the device last month.ADNFCR-8000103-ID-801807458-ADNFCR
