Stimwave LLC, a leading innovator in wireless medical device technology and independent research institute, has received FDA 510(k) clearance for the first wireless, micro-technology neuromodulation device that can enable ongoing full-body MRI scans under certain scanning conditions for the relief of chronic peripheral nerve pain.

Representing a life-changing technological breakthrough for the more than 400 million people worldwide who suffer from severe intractable chronic pain, the StimQ Peripheral Nerve Stimulator (PNS) System offers an alternative for those who do not want to rely on invasive surgical procedures or ongoing opioid treatments. The smallest neuromodulation device available, the StimQ device can be placed in a minimally-invasive, outpatient procedure for the treatment of various pain syndromes, including, but not limited to: shoulder pain, upper extremity neuropathy, mid and lower back pain, and lower extremity neuropathy. The new FDA clearance enables the pain sufferer to have frequent and necessary MRI scans of any part of their body without removing the implant.
