The U.S. Food and Drug Administration gave Boston Scientific approval for its new Clik Anchor technology, developed to provide a new way to secure leads of the Precision Plus Spinal Cord Stimulator system. The device, pictured on the side, is designed to make a click when a secure attachment is made.
The Clik Anchor features an innovative locking system designed to improve lead anchoring speed and consistency. Locking into place on the lead with a simple turn of a hex wrench, it provides tactile and audible confirmation for physicians that the lead is secured.
Boston Scientific’s Precision Plus SCS System, powered by SmoothWave™ Technology, masks pain signals by delivering independently controlled pulses of electricity through SCS leads. Anchors are designed to secure leads and minimize unwanted migration.
The Precision Plus SCS System is indicated as an aid in managing chronic intractable pain of the trunk and/or limbs, including unilateral or bilateral pain associated with failed back surgery syndrome, intractable low back pain and leg pain.
