New Medtronic Deep Brain Stimulation System the First to Sense and Record Brain Activity While Delivering Therapy


Medtronic, Inc. announced the first implant of a novel deep brain stimulation (DBS) system, called Activa® PC+S.  For the first time, it enables the sensing and recording of brain electrical activity in key areas, while simultaneously providing targeted DBS therapy.  This is significant because it initiates research that could change how neurological and psychological diseases are treated, such as Parkinson's disease, essential tremor, dystonia, and treatment-resistant obsessive-compulsive disorder.
