Stimwave Freedom Stimulators provide a safe approach to neuromodulation therapy, reducing the risks associated with Implantable Pulse Generators (IPGs) that requires a battery be implanted. Implanted batteries create a new pain, increase surgical procedures, deplete, fail, or worse- can cause significant risk to the patient. Freedom Stimulators are of the smallest, most compact neurostimulator systems. Freedom Stimulators are full-body MRI conditional. The externally worn transmitter can be recharged easily and provide individual programming options to keep you in control of your pain relief.
The Freedom Stimulator comes with both the implanted neurostimulator and a receiver. The neurostimulator has small metal electrodes near the tip that create an electrical field of energy when power is applied. The electrical energy aids in blocking the pain signals coming from certain nerves. The receiver receives energy from an external, non-surgically implanted transmitter and couples the RF energy to the stimulator providing a variety of programming options.
The Wearable Antenna Assembly (WAA) – known as the transmitter and battery – is worn externally and wirelessly powers the Freedom Stimulator. Wireless power is sent from the transmitter to the implanted receiver. The implanted Stimulator only accepts power and parameter settings from a personalized, specific WAA transmitter for each patient.
The iOS-based Programmer is used in the clinical setting to provide advanced programming options to the Wearable Antenna Assembly. The iOS Programmer couples interface simplicity with personalized programming capabilities for every patient with one system.
