The Intellis neurostimulator interrupts pain signals that travel between your spinal cord and brain, which may help you take control of pain — and your future.
The device, similar to a pacemaker, is surgically implanted under the skin. It delivers mild electrical impulses along implanted wires to an area near your spine.
The Intellis system provides a solution to a top concern for many patients: issues related to battery or recharge.
Powered by Medtronic Overdrive™ battery technology, the Intellis™ system features:
Sometime in the future, you may need an MRI† to diagnose an unrelated condition.
Approximately 82% of SCS-implanted patients will likely need at least one MRI within five years of implant.
The Intellis spinal cord stimulation system uses Medtronic SureScan™ MRI technology, which gives you the same full-body MRI† access as non-implanted patients — now and in the future.
Your pain therapy information, including your position diary, unique therapy settings and spine images, is stored on your Intellis device, so it’s with you wherever you go.
This gives you the freedom to travel or relocate, knowing that another physician can access your secure information directly from your device.
Talk with a physician and see if the therapy might be right for you.
Discreet stimulation trial lets you try the therapy without requiring you to have the neurostimulator implanted.
Start on the path to chronic pain relief.
Every patient experience is unique. Not everyone who receives Medtronic neurostimulation therapy will experience the same results.
Under specific conditions. Talk to your doctor and refer to product labeling for full list of conditions.
