For electrophysiological evaluation, the Neuropack MEB-2200[R] measuring system (Nihon Kohden, Tokyo, Japan), SS-203J[R] isolator (Nihon Kohden), and SEN-3401[R] microstimulator
(Nihon Kohden) were used.

for chronic deep brain stimulation in freely moving rats," Journal of Neuroscience Methods, vol.
The published clinical results for the Pulsante Microstimulator
are compelling and demonstrate that we truly can improve the quality of life for many patients by freeing them from the pain of disabling headaches," said Pellegrini.
After 5 days of recovery, a wireless microstimulator
was mounted on the back of the rat to deliver electrical stimuli into the brain via the implanted electrodes.

The study used a watch-sized digital microstimulator
that was specially developed for this project to assess the effects of ongoing electrical stimulation at acupuncture points on gastroparesis symptoms in diabetic patients with refractory gastroparesis.
Since then, they have been allowed to settle in Mrs Read's arm and yesterday she was fitted with a radio frequency cuff or coil which will relay signals from a computer and then to the microstimulator
Implanted into a patient's arm, the "BION" microstimulator
mimics signals from the brain, electrically stimulating weak or paralyzed muscles to effect functional arm and hand movements.
The prototype microstimulator
that was used in this trial had an external coil worn around the patient's hips and a controller worn around the shoulder or waist.
A tiny capacitor inside each microstimulator
stores up the electrical energy delivered by an external, battery-driven power source.
The company said its Pulsante microstimulator
is the first electroceutical device that has documented efficacy in a long term RCT for the treatment of cluster headache.
