† The sensing feature of the Percept™ RC system is intended for use in patients receiving DBS where chronically-recorded bioelectric data may provide useful, objective information regarding patient clinical status. The majority of patients with Parkinson’s disease have an identifiable signal. Signal may not be present or measurable in patients treated for essential tremor, dystonia*, or epilepsy.

*Humanitarian device: The effectiveness of these devices for the treatment of dystonia has not been demonstrated.
