What is Nerve Stimulation?
Nerve Stimulation Technology (also knows as Peripheral Nerve Stimulation) involves surgery that places a small electrical device next to one of the peripheral nerves. The electrode then delivers a rapid electrical pulse to the affected area sending a mild tingle sensation to the patient. There is normally a testing period (trial) where the electrode is connected to an external device and if successful, a small generator will be permanently implanted into the patient’s body. The patient is then able to control stimulation by turning the device on and off and adjusting the levels of stimulation if needed.
Polar Medical specialise in the supply of the Neurimpulse Peripheral Nerve Stimulation System which features a generator device which is implanted into the area causing the pain and then sends electrical signals to nerve causing the discomfort. These electrical signals run through the nerves and to the brain, blocking the sensation of pain and replacing it with a pleasant feeling – from experience, patients have reported this feels like a “light massage” and a “light tingling sensation”. The stimulation intensity can be personally adjusted by the patient via a remote control handset and they can even set different strengths of stimulation for different times of the day – so it’s a very customisable system.

Neurimpulse Peripheral Nerve Stimulation System
The Neurimpulse Peripheral Nerve implantable simulator is a non-rechargeable, tetrapolar pulse generator, dedicated to peripheral nerve stimulation for chronic pain management, based on an efficient microprocessor technology. These simulators can program a wide variety of parameters with a totally configurable output which gives control to the patient.
The main benefits are:
- Daily Function: Daily programming of the switch on/off hour with one minute resolution.
- Circadian Function: Amplitude stimulation programming hour by hour, within 24 hours, between minimum and maximum values chosen by the physician.
