Stimwave Receives CE Mark Approval for Percutaneous Stimulator Anchoring System

May 30, 2017

Stimwave Technologies has gained a CE Mark for the Sandshark percutaneous injectable anchor system.

The injectable anchor is used in conjunction with the company’s wireless neurostimulator devices to provide relief of chronic pain.

As the stimulator is injected, the SandShark is slid down over the device, progressing the un-deployed anchor into ligaments and strong connective tissues.

Once the anchor is in the desired location, the clinician pulls back on the handle, simultaneously deploying the wings of the anchor and pushing them laterally into the tissue.

The process secures the anchor to the stimulator and secures the stimulator to the surrounding tissue to prevent migration throughout the life of the micro-implant. — Cynthia Jessup
