Why Freedom? Stimwave Freedom SCS System and StimQ PNS System provides a safer approach to pain therapy, virtually eliminating the dangers associated with implanted batteries and toxic materials in your body. With no more extra surgeries to replace batteries or electronics, and no open ports directly to your spinal canal, the Freedom SCS System provides you with a true “freedom” from wires, cables, and implanted generators- and best of all- no unsightly scars. Freedom-4 is the world’s smallest neurostimulator and can be safely used in full body MRI 1.5T and 3.0T scanner systems. Since the power source is external, two or more devices can be implanted to increase pain coverage area – all powered from just one, single external unit. The wearable system is water-resistant and robust for use in daily life. The external compact device incorporates easy-to-access buttons to change therapy intensity on the fly and can be recharged easily.
Freedom SCS System
The Freedom SCS (Spinal Cord Stimulator) System is inserted into the epidural space dorsal to the spinal cord. SCS has been used for the relief of chronic low back and leg pain for over 40 years. Now with Freedom SCS, the implant is smaller than ever (5% of the size), it is a totally wireless procedure, and the procedure is the most minimally invasive. The stimulation intercepts the pain signals in your spinal cord traveling to your brain and masks it with an electric signal. The common sensation of the electric stimulation is described as a tingling or buzzing.
Before the device is implanted permanently, there is a mandatory trial implant (3-7 day period) where you “test-drive” the stimulation to determine if it is effective for your pain relief. After the trial device is removed and determined to help your pain relief, then the permanent implant is scheduled. SCS is covered by most healthcare providers, so ask your doctor about wireless SCS, and bring Freedom back to your life today!
StimQ PNS System
The StimQ PNS (Peripheral Nerve Stimulator) System treats chronic pain by targeting the peripheral nerve affiliated with your chronic pain. The device is inserted through a needle, and can be placed to stimulate any peripheral nerve below the head and outside of the spinal cord. Like never before, pinpoint your pain relief by implanting a wireless miniature stimulator near the source of your pain!
PNS, like SCS, requires a trial period. Before the device is implanted permanently, there is a mandatory trial implant (3-7 day period) where you “test-drive” the stimulation to determine if it is effective for your pain relief. After the trial device is removed and determined to help your pain relief, then the permanent implant is scheduled. Talk to your doctor today about wireless StimQ PNS and pinpoint your pain relief !
