The RNS® System
Targeted Treatment When It's Needed™

RNS® Neurostimulator
The neurostimulator is a small, battery powered device surgically implanted in the skull. Physicians trained on use of the RNS® System program the neurostimulator to continuously monitor brain electrical activity, and the neurostimulator delivers brief pulses of stimulation when it detects activity that could lead to a seizure. The stimulation can help to prevent the seizure before it happens.

NeuroPace® Cortical Strip Leads and NeuroPace® Depth Leads
The leads are wires that connect the neurostimulator directly to the area of the brain where seizures start. The neurostimulator uses the leads to sense brain activity and to deliver brief pulses of stimulation.

 

NeuroPace® Remote Monitor and Wand
The remote monitor and wand are used at home by the patient to collect data from the neurostimulator. The remote monitor is also used to share these data with the physician over the Internet. The remote monitor is available in two different models so that data can be transferred using either a dial-up connection or an Ethernet connection.

 

Magnet
The magnet can be swiped over the neurostimulator to trigger storage of brain activity when symptoms associated with a seizure occur. Even if the magnet is not swiped, the neurostimulator automatically records based on the doctor defined settings. Another use of the magnet is to temporarily stop stimulation.

NeuroPace® Programmer and Wand
The programmer and wand are used by the physician to collect data from the neurostimulator and to program the neurostimulator. The programmer can also be used to review previously retrieved neurostimulator activity, to perform detection analysis, and to communicate with the PDMS.

 

Patient Data Management System (PDMS)

Data collected from an implanted neurostimulator are transferred to and stored in the secure PDMS database. Clinicans who have the appropriate credentials to authenticate themselves to the secure PDMS website can use the website to review the neurostimulator data for their patients. They can also simulate new detection settings on the stored data and then create new detection sets and send them to a programmer for use in adjusting the programmable settings of the neurostimulator at the patient's next office visit. An example of a record of data stored in the PDMS database is illustrated below.
