Recharging Your Neurostimulator

Chronic Pain

The Medtronic RestoreSensor®, RestoreUltra® and RestoreAdvanced® neurostimulators contain a battery that must be recharged regularly to maintain the therapy.

The following components are used during the recharge process:

  • The recharger is a hand-held device for charging the battery in your neurostimulator. The display on the recharger provides information on your charging system
  • The antenna is connected to the recharger and used to establish communication with your neurostimulator
  • The waist belt keeps the antenna directly over your neurostimulator during a recharging session
  • The AC power supply and power cord charge the recharger when its battery runs low.
