Stimwave’s StimQ Peripheral Nerve Stimulator System (PNS) utilizes the same technology as the freedom SCS System. A neurostimulator with electrodes and a receiver to utilize wireless RF power is placed near a peripheral nerve in your body, below the head, to treat your chronic pain. Fitting through a needle-sized incision allows for placement with minimally invasive surgery, typically as an outpatient procedure.
Stimwave PNS doesn’t rely on an implanted, bulky battery. Instead, the externally worn when needed patient transmitter and antenna gives you programming options to control your chronic pain relief.
StimQ PNS enables ongoing MRI scans; therefore, is ideal for patients who will continue to require frequent MRI scans throughout their body while still managing their chronic pain.
