Abbott's new Proclaim DRG neurostimulation system puts drug-free pain control in the hands of the patient.
Developed for patients suffering from complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) in the lower limbs, the Proclaim DRG system consists of an implanted neuromodulator that stimulates the dorsal root ganglion, an iPad for programming and an iPod for patient control. The neuromodulator communicates with the paired devices via Bluetooth, and can also be wirelessly updated.
In tests, DRG stimulation has been proven to bring long-term relief to patients with CRPS, such as can occur after knee, foot or hernia surgeries.
