SPR’s first available product is the SMARTPATCH® Peripheral Nerve Stimulation (PNS) System intended to be used for up to 30 days for pain relief. The Smartpatch PNS System has received CE mark approval for the treatment of chronic shoulder pain. In the United States, this short-term, percutaneous PNS system is being evaluated in multiple studies for chronic shoulder pain, post-amputation pain, and post-surgical pain following knee replacement.
The Smartpatch PNS System consists of an implanted percutaneous lead, a skin-mounted external stimulator, and Smartpatch pads, small adhesive patches with an integrated battery that provides the power source for the System. The Smartpatch pad is replaced regularly based on treatment parameters, allowing the clinician to prescribe the total dosage based upon the number of Smartpatch pads provided to the patient.
We also are developing the fully-implantable MICROPULSE® PNS system designed to deliver long-term stimulation via an implanted rechargeable pulse generator. The Micropulse system is intended for patients requiring sustained stimulation for long-term pain management.
Caution: The Smartpatch PNS System and Micropulse PNS System are investigational devices. Limited by United States law to investigational use.
