Picostim

A unique ultra-compact neurostimulator

Existing DBS devices require two procedures: One to implant the leads into the brain and a second to tunnel the leads through the neck to the device which is implanted in a chest cavity. At 7cc, Picostim is approximately one third of the volume of current devices making it the only skull mounted general purpose DBS device available.

Picostim can be implanted in a single step allowing two or more patients to be scheduled per day rather than one as is presently the case, potentially doubling surgical team productivity.

Additionally, Picostim transforms the patient experience, with a better cosmetic appearance, no possibility of lead wire breakage, or fibrosis around the lead in the neck which is a cause of stiffness and pain, and is MRI compatible.
