St. Jude Launches SCS System in Europe
St. Jude Medical has launched its Proclaim Elite spinal cord stimulation system, a non-rechargeable system designed to deliver burst stimulation, in Europe.
The approval includes conditional magnetic resonance, enabling patients to safely undergo head and extremity MRI scans.
The device doesn’t need to be recharged and features Bluetooth wireless technology and Apple mobile digital devices to allow for more effective management of chronic pain treatment.
It also is equipped with an upgradeable platform, so patients can more easily access future therapies and software upgrades. — Michael Cipriano
