Intellis Platform with AdaptiveStim Technology

Spinal Cord Stimulation


The Intellis™ with AdaptiveStimTM 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
  • Postlaminectomy pain
  • Multiple back operations
  • Unsuccessful disk surgery
  • Degenerative Disk Disease (DDD)/herniated disk pain refractory to conservative and surgical interventions
  • Peripheral causalgia
  • Epidural fibrosis
  • Arachnoiditis or lumbar adhesive arachnoiditis
  • Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), or causalgia

Medtronic Exclusives

  • 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.
