A device that is placed under the skin through a minimally invasive procedure.
An app on your smartphone that allows you to discretely adjust your therapy.
An external unit that both powers
and controls the microstimulator.
Up to 27x smaller than the largest commercially available IPG.
Small device implanted under the skin.
Small size of microstimulator minimizes the chances that it is visible beneath
the skin. You can simply remove the Therapy Disc when you are not using it or
place it under your clothing when you need it.
No implanted batteries. Completely avoid the need for battery replacement
Science and technology change rapidly. The Therapy Disc can easily be
upgraded to the latest therapies without the need for surgery.
If at anytime you chose not to continue therapy, it can be removed by your doctor.
Neuromodulation is a well-established pain treatment used throughout the
world for over 40 years.
It includes a small implanted device that transmits mild electrical pulses to the
spinal cord. The pulses calm the nerves and reduces pain signals to the brain.
Neuromodulation does not require drugs or physical therapy to work.
The process for implementing the Nalu Neuromodulation System is simple, minimally invasive and reversible.
It begins with temporary evaluation – so you can try before committing to a full system implant.
- The Nalu system can be tried in a temporary
evaluation period that typically last
seven-days during which pain relief
along with improvements in daily
activities are evaluated.
- Thin wires (leads) are temporarily placed
near the spinal cord or nerve and
connected to an external stimulator.
- You will also wear a Therapy Disc to see if
the Nalu System is right for you.
- After the temporary evaluation, the wires
are removed and you and your doctor will
decide if SCS therapy is for you.
- The implant procedure is a minimally
invasive surgery for implanting the IPG
- The leads will be placed near where they
were during the temporary evaluation.
- The battery-free IPG will be implanted
just under the skin.
- The therapy will always be available when
you need it.
- You can discreetly control and monitor
stimulation through a compatible smartphone.
- Nalu system software can be upgraded over
time to add new, FDA-cleared therapy
options, and other useful features without
Yes. Even though your leads and IPG are surgically implanted, they can be removed by your doctor, if ever needed.
Yes, you will have control over your therapy and can turn it off using your Therapy Disc or the Nalu Remote Control App on your smartphone. You can also remove the Therapy Disc when therapy is not needed.
Traveling is simple and easy for people with a neuromodulation system. If you need to go
through a security screening device, such as those found at the airport, you can request
assistance to bypass the screening device since you have an implanted device.
