The Intellis™ implantable neurostimulator is powered by proprietary Overdrive™ battery technology. It is designed to overcome limitations with current SCS systems and is optimized for the increased energy demands of High Dose (HD) therapy. The Intellis platform uses a tablet with wireless programming and a neurostimulator that can record patient activity around the clock. Snapshot™ reporting allows physicians to objectively monitor a patient’s progress. Additional Medtronic exclusive features — AdaptiveStim™ and SureScan™ full-body MRI technologies — are also part of the Intellis platform.
A Medtronic implantable neurostimulation system is indicated for spinal cord stimulation (SCS) as an aid in the management of chronic, intractable pain of the trunk and/or limbs – including unilateral or bilateral pain associated with the following conditions:
Failed Back Syndrome (FBS) or low back syndrome or failed back
Radicular pain syndrome or radiculopathies resulting in pain secondary to FBS or herniated disk
Multiple back operations
Unsuccessful disk surgery
Degenerative Disk Disease (DDD)/herniated disk pain refractory to conservative and surgical interventions
~1 hour recharge - empty to full (approximate time)
Improved battery performance with minimal capacity fade (<5%)
Designed for patient comfort and more flexible placement during the implant
WIRELESS EXTERNAL NEUROSTIMULATOR
Wireless, sterile single-use external neurostimulator simplifies testing during trial and implant
Designed for patient comfort and convenience
Tablet with touchscreen interface
Secure, wireless programming outside the sterile field
Tailored programming workflows
Electronic transfer of a variety of reports
Requires the use of the Intellis clinician programmer app and communicator device
Combined Patient Programmer and Recharger
Recharge from fully depleted battery
Large, pliable recharge antenna designed for patient comfort
World's smallest implantable SCS neurostimulator
Overdrive battery technology optimized for the increased energy demands of HD therapies
Snapshot reporting transforms patient conversations from subjective to objective.
Evolve workflow - standardized guidance to simplify the trial and implant experience and optimize patient outcomes
AdaptiveStim technology adjusts stimulation dose automatically. It delivers the right dose to the right location, as the pain target shifts with different body positions.
MRI SureScan technology gives patients the broadest access to MRI* because it allows MRI scans anywhere on the body, under certain conditions.
