Spinal Cord Stimulation System Provides Broader Pain Coverage

A mature man rubs his shoulder as he tells his doctor about his shoulder pain during a medical appointment. The doctor listens attentively to the patient.
FlexBurst360 therapy provides pain coverage across up to 6 areas of the trunk and/or limbs and enables adjustable programming.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the Proclaim Plus spinal cord stimulation (SCS) system featuring FlexBurst360 therapy for the treatment of chronic, intractable pain of the trunk and/or limbs. 

FlexBurst360 therapy builds upon Abbott’s proprietary BurstDR stimulation technology, providing pain coverage across up to 6 areas of the trunk and/or limbs. Using the Proclaim Plus SCS system, physicians can identify the lowest effective dose of stimulation for each patient and adjust it based on evolving pain needs.

Individuals can access therapy settings using either a mobile device or through a Company-provided mobile device. The system can also be used with Abbott’s NeuroSphere™ Virtual Clinic, allowing individuals to communicate with a clinician via a secure in-app video chat and receive remote programming adjustments.

The Proclaim Plus SCS system is recharge-free with a battery life lasting up to 10 years.
