The Precision Novi spinal cord stimulation system by Boston Scientific, a device to manage chronic pain, is now available in Europe. Spinal stimulators alleviate pain by using stimulation therapy to reduce nerve fiber pain signals. The 16-contact primary cell (non-rechargeable) system is the world’s smallest device available on the market according to the manufacturer. The system is also the only primary cell device able to pair with a wireless remote, giving users greater flexibility when managing their pain treatment.
“The small size and novel shape of the Precision Novi implant improves patient comfort and enables a very discreet subcutaneous placement,” said Dr. Simon Thomson, a consultant in Pain Management and Neuromodulation at Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals, UK. “The simplicity of the programming software saves valuable time in the operating theatre, efficiently allowing me to achieve and maintain comfortable therapy for my patients.”
The Precision Novi is powered by Illumina 3D software; a neural targeting software that features three-dimensional lead locating, as well as conductivity of the spinal cord and surrounding tissue.
Boston Scientific Neuromodulation president Maulik Nanavaty said: “The Precision Novi system brings the power of our Illumina 3D algorithm to more than 60% of SCS patients in Europe who are treated with primary cell therapy.”
The Precision Novi SCS system is currently unavailable for sale in the US. But the system has received the European CE Mark in order to sell the chronic pain treatment device in Europe.
