Inceptiv™ Spinal Cord Stimulator
Discover why Inceptiv™ is the most advanced SCS system with closed-loop technology
Fixed-output systems do not account for shifts in lead-to-spinal cord distance, which may result in inconsistent therapy dose4 and can compromise patient experience.
With fixed-output systems, patients need to make adjustments to deliver optimal therapy, regardless of waveform. Under- and overdosing can lead to variable therapy experience.
Variability in electrode distance to spinal cord due to activities and position
Inceptiv™ SCS system with closed loop technology senses* neutral response and automatically adjusts stimulation to maintain therapy level during all patients activities.
does not depend on adjustments from the patient to maintain stimulation
instantly adjusts therapy delivery in real time
provides consistent therapy while patients perform a full range of daily activities
Closed-loop SCS offers flexibility of therapy programming, based on patient preference.
highest back pain responder rate reported at 12 months in similar RCTs‡ (≥50% improvement)1.
of DTM™ SCS patients were profound back pain responders (≥80% pain relief).1
Sensing signals may not be measurable in all cases.
DTM™ SCS superior outcomes demonstrated using open-loop SCS therapy.
Descriptive comparison, including studies with similar design (RCT; randomization >100 subjects; comparing 2 SCS therapies; with at least 12-months follow-up) and patient populations (inclusion/exclusion criteria; baseline demographics) with back pain responder rates reported. This is not based on a statistical analysis of outcomes between studies.
