Bioness Inc. Announces the Commercial Availability of StimRouter Neuromodulation System at International Neuromodulation Society World Congress
Jun 8 15
On June 8, 2015, at the International Neuromodulation Society 12th World Congress, Bioness Inc. announced the commercial availability of StimRouter, an implantable neuromodulation device to treat chronic, intractable pain of peripheral nerve origin as an adjunct to other modes of therapy. StimRouter received clearance from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in February and is the only implantable neuromodulation device indicated to treat chronic pain of peripheral nerve origin. StimRouter is cleared by the FDA to treat chronic pain of peripheral nerve origin. StimRouter is a minimally invasive neuromodulation medical device consisting of an implanted lead, external pulse transmitter (EPT) and conductive electrode, controlled by a small, hand-held wireless control unit. Electrical signals are transmitted transdermally from the EPT through the electrode, down the lead to the target nerve. Each system is programmed at the direction of the physician to meet patient requirements.

Bioness Inc. Initiates Pilot Study of StimRouter Neuromodulation System for Overactive Bladder
Mar 26 15
Bioness Inc. announced that four (4) patients have successfully been implanted with the StimRouter Neuromodulation System, for an ongoing Canadian pilot study to evaluate device use in the treatment of overactive bladder symptoms. The StimRouter is already FDA cleared as a treatment for chronic, intractable pain of peripheral nerve origin. Now, this minimally invasive technology is being studied as an alternative treatment for the 35 million people in the United States who suffer from overactive bladder symptoms and the 10 million who receive treatment for it, which contributes $66 billion in annual cost to the U.S. healthcare system. In the pilot study, subjects with documented refractory overactive bladder will receive tibial nerve stimulation via the StimRouter implantable lead and external pulse transmitter. The subjects will manage their treatment at home in accordance with the defined protocol, with periodic in-clinic outcome visits. The device is equipped with a feature to track usage and compliance during the 6-month trial. While the StimRouter has demonstrated efficacy in relieving peripheral nerve pain, the technology has the potential to be leveraged for even more applications.
