Nalu Medical, Inc. Announces Additional Software Enhancements to the Nalu Neuromodulation System
CARLSBAD, Calif. (PRWEB) July 27, 2020
Nalu Medical, Inc. (“Nalu”), a global medical device company that provides miniaturized, battery-free implantable solutions for the treatment of intractable chronic pain via Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) and Peripheral Nerve Stimulation (PNS), announced today that it has launched a software update that unlocks new capabilities for the Nalu Neurostimulation System.
The Nalu system is designed to be highly capable and easily upgradeable. At the heart of the system is the nPower™ Technology, a highly configurable microchip that allows for additional therapy options and features to be seamlessly added through external software updates. The current upgrade builds upon the existing significant capabilities, with Combination Therapies, Expanded Multi-Area, Program Scheduling, and Enhanced Patient Controls.
“There is no one therapy option that will work for every patient. Our philosophy is to continue to develop an ever-expanding menu of therapy options to give patients the best chance at responding, achieving high levels of success, and maintaining that success over the long run,” said Earl Fender, Nalu’s President/CEO.
“The pace of innovation in neuromodulation is accelerating,” said Dr. Sailesh Arulkumar, of SSM Pain Care in Oklahoma City, OK. “Nalu is uniquely positioned with a battery-free implant that is upgradable with new technology without the need for replacement surgeries, making Nalu attractive to patient centric physicians. When discussing the benefits of Nalu compared to other systems, the choice that has a battery-free implant, no charging pad, and an app that is integrated with smartphones, is almost always chosen by patients. The utilization of Nalu has expanded my ability to offer neuromodulation as a first line therapy to patients.”

About the Nalu Neurostimulation System
The Nalu Neurostimulation System, an implanted treatment for managing intractable chronic pain, consists of a fully-featured micro-Implantable Pulse Generator (mIPG™) free of an implantable battery and powered by an externally worn Therapy Disc and controlled by the patient via a smartphone app. The Nalu mIPG is built upon the nPower™ microchip platform that delivers outputs similar to larger IPGs but with additional capabilities around waveforms, programming modes and upgradability. The Nalu mIPG is currently cleared by the FDA for both Spinal Cord Stimulation and Peripheral Nerve Stimulation indications with an expected service life of 18 years.

Indications for Use
Spinal Cord Stimulation – The Nalu SCS system 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 (≤ 30 days) to determine efficacy before recommendation for a permanent (long term) device.
Peripheral Nerve Stimulation – The Nalu PNS system 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 (≤ 30 days) to determine efficacy before recommendation for a permanent (long term) device.
