† The sensing feature of the Percept™ PC system and 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*, epilepsy, or obsessive-compulsive disorder*.

* Humanitarian device: The effectiveness of these devices for the treatment of dystonia and obsessive-compulsive disorder has not been demonstrated.
