A small device with a powerful effect
BAROSTIM THERAPY™ is effectively administered through the BAROSTIM NEO™ device.
The first piece is a lead. A lead is a soft, thin wire about the size of a spaghetti noodle that has a tiny disc, called an electrode, at the end. The lead carries the energy that activates the baroreflex. It is placed in your neck, where the electrode makes contact with the baroreceptors.
The second piece is an implantable pulse generator. An implantable pulse generator is a small power source that provides the energy that the lead requires to activate your baroreflex. It is placed below your collarbone.
