St Jude Medical’s Invisible Trial System receives CE Mark approval

8th June 2015

St Jude Medical has announced the European launch of its new Invisible Trial System, an app-based and wireless neuromodulation programming system.

Leveraging Apple iPod touch and iPad mini technology, the system has received CE Mark approval and is designed to help chronic pain patients better assess the effect of spinal cord stimulation therapy prior to permanent implant.

It uses an external pulse generator as its power source, which in turn utilises Bluetooth communication to wirelessly link the patient's Apple device and the stimulation system. As such, the system can be worn under a patient's clothing without the need for cables.

Additionally, the new trial system has the capability to deliver both traditional and Burst stimulation modes, with the latter minimising paresthesia in most patients.

Dr Eric Fain, group president of St Jude Medical, said: "The system was designed to improve the comfort and usability of our system for patients evaluating spinal cord stimulation therapy to alleviate their chronic pain without focusing on potential barriers such as programming trial cables and systems with complex trial controls."

The company also announced clinical trial results this week showing its how its Axium system can provide superior pain relief over traditional spinal cord stimulation for the treatment of chronic lower limb pain.ADNFCR-8000103-ID-801790385-ADNFCR
