ACTIVA™ RC DEVICE

15 Years of Continuous DBS Therapy with Activa™ RC

The Activa™ RC is a dual-channel, rechargeable neurostimulator for patients with high energy need and has a 15-year longevity.

The device is implanted in the chest or abdomen, connected to extensions and leads, which are implanted in the brain. The device delivers a controlled electrical pulse to precisely targeted areas of the brain.

The Activa™ RC system provides the ability to control the stimulation field with interleaved pulses and patient-specific therapy groups.

Indications:

  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Essential tremor
  • Dystonia

NEUROSTIMULATOR CHARGING HAS NEVER BEEN EASIER.

Now, patients can begin at the press of a single button – and check status at the blink of an eye. With the intuitive design of the system, a streamlined charging procedure and insights available via the recharger companion app, patients can be confident they’re getting an optimal charge, every time.

  • Wireless mobility while charging
  • Simplified components and charging interaction
  • Easy-to-understand indicators
  • Recharger Application provides additional insights to charge
  • Session and patient customization options.

Activa™ RC Product Details

Proven Battery Performance

In 2009, when we launched the first rechargeable technology in the DBS market, we felt confident that our devices would provide predictable performance for up to nine years. This confidence was based largely on accelerated lab-testing.

Today, as part of our commitment to the Medtronic mission and to DBS therapy, we have invested in post-market analysis and continuous device testing to validate our predictive models, and confidently extend device service life from 9 to 15 years.

Programming Options

Establish programming groups that may allow patients to reach optimized settings sooner.

Achieve finer control over the stimulation field by delivering multiple programs per lead.

MR Conditional*

The Activa™ RC DBS system is ready for today’s imaging needs: Eligible patients with an Activa™ RC neurostimulator may have an MRI scan anywhere on the body under certain conditions.

Refer to the MRI Guidelines for Medtronic Deep Brain Stimulation Systems and DBS MRI Eligibility Sheet for a complete list of conditions and instructions for use. 

ACTIVA™ SC DEVICE

ACTIVA™ SC INDICATIONS

The Activa™ SC  is a single-channel, non-rechargeable primary cell neurostimulator  for patients with moderate energy needs.

The device is implanted in the chest or abdomen, connected to an extension and lead, which are implanted in the brain. The device delivers a controlled electrical pulse to precisely targeted areas of the brain.

The Activa™ SC provides the ability to control the stimulation field with interleaved pulses and patient-specific therapy groups.

Indications:

  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Essential tremor
  • Dystonia
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder

CLINICIAN AND PATIENT PROGRAMMERS

Clinician Programmer

For decades, we’ve taken DBS therapy further than anyone. And in support of our mission to improve patient lives, we’ve joined with clinicians to develop a programmer with the power to significantly enhance your DBS programmer interactions, to streamline your programming session with streamlined workflows, actionable insights, and patient-focused programming — so you and your DBS patients can experience an altogether smarter therapeutic journey.

INSIGHTFUL. INTUITIVE. STREAMLINED.

Secure, patient-focused programming, streamlined workflows, and actionable insights are more accessible than ever. 

Clinician Programmer

Activa™ Patient Programmer

The familiar interface of the DBS Activa™ patient programmer helps build confidence while enabling patients to manage their DBS therapy on a device that looks like a smartphone. They’ll appreciate the ease of use, and you’ll appreciate how simple the programmer is for patients to learn and use.

SIMPLE.  PERSONAL. SMART.

Optimise your patients' DBS therapy experience with the DBS patient programmer.

Medtronic DBS systems are MR Conditional which means they are safe for MRI scans only under certain conditions. If the conditions are not met, the MRI could cause tissue heating, especially at the implanted lead(s) in the brain, which may result in serious and permanent injury or death. Before having an MRI, always talk with the doctor who manages your DBS Therapy to determine your eligibility and discuss potential benefits and risks of MRI. For further information, please call Medtronic at +44 (0) 1923 205101.

Activa™ RC devices eligible for the service life extension and the supplemental limited warranty are those devices that have been successfully interrogated with the Medtronic Activa Clinician Programmer (tablet) prior to reaching End of Service (EOS). For more information on the warranty contact rs.rtgwarranty@medtronic.com.

Patients who had long charge times with 37651 Medtronic Implantable Neurostimulator Recharger (due to tilt, implant depth, and other challenges) have the opportunity to experience improvement with the wireless recharger.

§

Activa™ Model 37602 is not eligible for full-body MRI.

||

Use of the Recharger Application is optional. Wireless Recharger will function normally without use of the optional application.

Brief Statement:

See the device manual for detailed information regarding the instructions for use, indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions, and potential adverse events. If using an MRI SureScan® device, see the MRI SureScan® technical manual before performing an MRI.
