The Nuvectra Algovita Spinal Cord Stimulation System is designed to help simplify therapy delivery for you and your patients.
The system is based on the best of Nuvectra’s proven SCS (Spinal Cord Stimulation) technology with a deep understanding of both the physician and patient needs. The advanced 24-channel implantable pulse generators (IPGs) and unique and comprehensive lead portfolio provide a broad range of options for pain coverage that can be customised to individual patient requirements.
How it Works
Thin leads are placed along the spinal cord and the small stimulator device is then placed under the skin and connected to the leads. The stimulator generates small amounts of electricity, which travel through the wires to stimulate the nerves that are sending pain signals. The stimulation sensation overrides the pain signals and instead of feeling pain, the patient should experience “paresthesia,” a tingling sensation.
