NeuRx DPS® is design of the electrodes that has been leading with anchoring technology specifically for long term implantation into the diaphragm muscle and laparoscopic delivery. The Permaloc Electrode have been leading using 316 Stainless Steel and other biocompatible materials with a long history of implantation. First, it is connected to the electrodes to provide intra operative stimulation and sensing of stimulation response. The pulse generator adds the timing and control of stimulus to regulate movement of the diaphragm muscle and alter respiration The NeuRx Clinical Station has three roles in supporting diaphragm pacing. The NeuRx Diaphragm Pacing System consists of four electrodes implanted in the diaphragm to stimulate the muscle, a fifth electrode under the skin to complete the electrical circuit, a connector holder, a cable and an external battery powered pulse generator.
- Type of neurostimulator:implantable
