Overview

THE INTELLISTM
PLATFORM

SPINAL CORD STIMULATION

The Intellis™ implantable neurostimulator is powered by proprietary Overdrive™ battery technology. It is designed to overcome limitations with current SCS systems and is optimised for the increased energy demands of High Dose (HD) therapy. The lntellis™ Platform uses a tablet with wireless programming and a neurostimulator that can record patient activity around the clock. Snapshot™ reporting allows physicians to monitor a patient’s progress objectively. Additional Medtronic exclusive features – AdaptiveStim™ and SureScan™ full-body MRI technologies – are also part of the Intellis™ Platform.

The EvolveSM Workflow gives standardised guidance on how to use HD and Low Dose (LD) for patients with chronic back and leg pain. The FocusSM Workflow gives guidance on how to apply Peripheral Nerve Stimulation (PNS) for patients with chronic back pain.

OBJECTIVE OUTCOMES

Why are they important?

“Subjective outcomes, such as VAS and ODI are helpful - but not enough. We need more objective data to help us see what is truly happening and changing in the life of a patient who is receiving Spinal Cord Stimulation. It can then help us see them getting better, and help us show them that they are getting better”.

Prof. Maarten Moens, Belgium

OBJECTIVE OUTCOMES

MEDTRONIC EXCLUSIVES

  • World’s smallest implantable SCS neurostimulator.
  • Overdrive battery technology optimised for the increased energy demands of HD therapies. 1-hour recharge from empty to full.
  • The EvolveSM Workflow - standardised guidance to simplify the trial and implant experience and optimise patient therapy.
  • AdaptiveStim™ technology adjusts stimulation dose automatically. It delivers the right dose to the right location, as the pain target shifts with different body positions.
  • Supporting patient conversations with access to objective data with Snapshot™ reports.
  • SureScanSM MRI technology gives SCS patients the broadest access to MRI* because it allows MRI scans anywhere on the body, under certain conditions.
