MORE PERSONALIZED CONTROL

Once your DBS therapy is activated you’ll receive a patient programmer that will enable you to turn the therapy on and off, check the device battery level, and modify stimulation settings that are pre-set by your physician. You may also log a seizure event and activate stimulation by pressing a button.

YOUR SMARTER SEIZURE DIARY

As part of your DBS therapy for epilepsy, it’s important to track your symptoms closely. Your patient programmer enables you to do this easily, with its onboard seizure diary. Now you and your physician can digitally track and share important information that could lead to adjustments to your therapy parameters.

Your healthcare provider can choose up to 4 customizable events to track digitally over the course of the day such as:

  • Auras
  • Seizure Types
  • Medication Changes
  • Other (patient specific)

MRI access — now even easier

Getting an MRI is now even easier for you. The Percept™ neurostimulator is full-body MRI eligible for DBS, so you can  benefit from the cutting-edge medical imaging when and if you need it. Simply check your patient programmer for compatibility, and put the device into MRI mode. 

Because your Patient programmer can perform a check before your scan, you may not need to schedule a doctor visit, and you may even be able to leave your stimulation on during the MRI scan.

Medtronic DBS systems are MR Conditional and safe in the MR environment as long as certain conditions are met. If the conditions are not met, a significant risk is tissue lesions from component heating, especially at the lead electrodes, resulting in serious and permanent injury including coma, paralysis, or death.
