08:34 EDTAAPLSt. Jude Medical receives FDA approval for spinal cord stimulation trial system
St. Jude Medical (STJ) announced it received FDA approval of the Invisible Trial System. The system, which received CE Mark in June 2015, is fully wireless and leverages Apple (AAPL) technology for both the patient and physician controllers. The system is designed to provide patients a more improved and discreet spinal cord stimulation, or SCS, trial experience. "Patients undergoing SCS trials consistently tell us about challenges they find in navigating the SCS trial system, from programming the device, to discomfort from the programming cables, to management of both issues. These hindrances may impede the integration of the technology into their daily activities, which shifts their focus away from evaluating the effectiveness of SCS therapy,” said pain specialist Dr. Jason E. Pope, president of Summit Pain Alliance in Santa Rosa, California. “By providing a discreet trial system, St. Jude Medical will help patients focus more on their potential pain relief and functional improvements, and less about the burdens common to traditional trial systems.”
