A battery-operated pacemaker-like device that contains a microelectronic circuitry for controlled electrical pulse generation. The neurostimulator is implanted subcutaneously near the clavicle. It generates electrical signals that are delivered by the extension and lead(s) to the targeted structures deep within the brain.
Kinetra Dual channel Neurostimulator
The Kinetraģ dual-channel neurostimulator accommodates two extensions/leads, and thus provides bilateral neurostimulation from a single neurostimulator. The Kinetra neurostimulator is 61 mm x 76 mm x 13 mm and weighs 83 grams.
Four thin, insulated, coiled wires bundled within polyurethane insulation. Each wire ends in a 1.5 mm electrode, resulting in four electrodes at the tip of the lead. The DBS Lead delivers stimulation using either one electrode or a combination of electrodes.
