As you start to use your Intellis™ SCS device, it’s important to know how to recharge your programmer and implanted neurostimulator. When the Low Battery screen appears on either the therapy programmer or neurostimulator, it’s time to recharge.
How your doctor programs your stimulation determines how often your implanted neurostimulator should be charged. Higher stimulation settings may need to be recharged more often than lower-level settings. Regular charging is important and will become part of your daily routine.
Watch the video to learn more about how to recharge your Intellis™ SCS therapy programmer and neurostimulator.
The recharging system includes:
Avoid being overly active during recharging. Movement could cause the belt to shift, which could limit or stop recharging session.
Following these tips will help ensure that your recharging session is successful.
WARNING: DO NOT use the recharger on an unhealed wound. The recharging system is not sterile and contact with a wound can cause an infection.
