HOW TO USE  YOUR SMART  PROGRAMMER

This quick video covers everything you need to know, including how to adjust your stimulation and change programs* as directed by your clinician.

Every time you use the My Therapy app, you’ll need to use the communicator to connect the smart programmer with the neurostimulator.

NOTIFICATIONS

You may receive pop-up notifications on the programmer while using the My Therapy app. If you have questions about a notification that does not appear here, check your My Therapy app programming guide. If you still have a question, contact your clinician.

TIP: If a notification disappears before you have time to read it, that means the error fixed itself. If any of these issues continue, contact your clinician.

COMMUNICATOR CONNECTION LOST

Your smart programmer has lost connection with your communicator. Make sure the communicator is fully charged. Then reposition it over the neurostimulator and tap retry on the programmer.

DEVICE NOT RESPONDING

Your neurostimulator is not responding. Reposition your communicator over your neurostimulator and tap retry.

COMMUNICATOR LOW BATTERY

Your communicator needs to be charged. Plug it into the charger. Remember, you can't use the communicator while it is recharging.
