Medtronic is the only SCS manufacturer to offer this proprietary, nontraditional lithium ion battery chemistry.
Patient can recharge
Improvements made to benefit your patients' needs and comfort
Implant depth of up to 3 cm
provides versatility and patient comfort
due to flipped batteries or over-discharged batteries
Meets the demands of current and future workflows including optimization for increased energy demands of HD therapies
Our Overdrive™ battery technology has a proprietary chemistry compared with SCS competitor batteries that are based on conventional Li ion chemistry. Our design allows for rapid recharge with minimal impact to the battery capacity at 9 years of use even with full discharge.
Under daily, empty-to-full charge and discharge testing:
Thus, patients will have a more consistent recharge interval and faster recharge experience, even under the most aggressive stimulation conditions.
The Intellis™ implantable neurostimulator is powered by proprietary Overdrive™ battery technology.
Intellis™ is the unrivaled spinal cord stimulation platform because it overcomes the limitations of other SCS systems.
