ReActiv8 - The Product
ReActiv8 is an implantable device designed to electrically stimulate nerves to key stabilizing muscles of the lumbar spine thereby activating these muscles.
The ReActiv8 includes two leads which are placed bilaterally near the medial branch of the dorsal ramus nerve at the L3 vertebra, and are connected to a small battery powered implantable pulse generator (IPG). The IPG generates the electrical pulses delivered via the leads to the nerves to activate the muscles.
An external programmer communicates wirelessly with the IPG and is used to customize stimulation for each user, and to display the diagnostic information automatically collected and stored in the IPG.
An external wireless activator is used to start and stop stimulation sessions typically for 30 minutes twice a day.
