The wearable IB-stim lessens the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome by sending gentle electric pulses through the cranial nerve.
Designed by Innovative Health Solutions for younger patients aged 11 to 18, the IB-stim fits behind the ear a bit like a hearing aid. The device’s three electrodes are positioned to deliver electrical impulses that target the area of the brain associated with IBS. The device can be implanted during an outpatient procedure, and has been proven effective in controlled clinical trials with volunteers reporting an 81 percent improvement in overall IBS symptoms.
