The Protect PNS for overactive bladder is an investigational device based on wireless neuromodulation technology and is implanted using a minimally invasive procedure percutaneously through a needle.
This technology includes an small injectible device, called a stimulator, and an external transmitter for power that is a fabric antenna placed in clothing. The Protect PNS of overactive bladder provides therapy for the relief of overactive bladder symptoms by delivering small controlled electrical pulses to the tibial nerve that travel to the sacral nerve plexus, the group of nerves near the pelvis that control for bladder function.
