Nalu and Nevro Reach Settlement in Patent Infringement Lawsuit
CARLSBAD, Calif. (PRWEB) December 22, 2021
Nalu Medical, Inc. announced today that Nalu and Nevro Corporation have reached a settlement in the patent infringement lawsuit brought by Nevro in February 2020.
“We are very pleased that we are able to put this litigation behind us, while maintaining our current menu of therapy options,” said Earl Fender, CEO.
Nalu is a California-based company with miniaturized, commercially available neurostimulation implants for chronic intractable pain management. Nalu’s miniature implantable pulse generator (IPG) is 27 times smaller than the largest commercially available IPGs. Accordingly, Nalu describes it as a mIPG™. Despite its small size, Nalu’s mIPG delivers treatment outputs similar to larger IPGs, but with additional capabilities around advanced waveforms, programming modes, upgradability and an expected service life of 18 years.

Indications for Use
Spinal Cord Stimulation – The Nalu Neurostimulation System for SCS is indicated as the sole mitigating agent, or as an adjunct to other modes of therapy used in a multidisciplinary approach for chronic, intractable pain of the trunk and/or limbs, including unilateral or bilateral pain. The trial devices are solely used for trial stimulation (no longer than 30 days) to determine efficacy before recommendation for a permanent (long term) device.
Peripheral Nerve Stimulation – The Nalu Neurostimulation System for PNS is indicated for pain management in adults who have severe intractable chronic pain of peripheral nerve origin, as the sole mitigating agent, or as an adjunct to other modes of therapy used in a multidisciplinary approach. The Nalu Neurostimulation System for PNS is not intended to treat pain in the craniofacial region. The trial devices are solely used for trial stimulation (no longer than 30 days) to determine efficacy before recommendation for a permanent (long term) device.
