InterStim X™ My Therapy
This app enables you to manage your therapy.
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 InterStim X™ My Therapy app, you’ll need to use the communicator to connect the smart programmer with the neurostimulator.
You may receive pop-up notifications on the programmer while using the InterStim X™ My Therapy app. If you have questions about a notification that does not appear here, check your InterStim X™ 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.
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.
Your neurostimulator is not responding. Reposition your communicator over your neurostimulator and tap retry.
Your communicator needs to be charged. Plug it into the charger. Remember, you can't use the communicator while it is recharging.
Some bowel control specialists recommend the InterStim iConTM programmer for therapy control. If you’re using this device, you can find more about it on our YouTube channel.VISIT THE CHANNEL
