Medtronic has received the CE Mark for its SureTune software, which provides patient-specific visualization to help physicians make decisions on how to program their patient’s deep brain stimulation (DBS) therapy.

DBS therapy applies mild electrical stimulation to precise targets in the brain in order to modulate specific symptom control. The brain targets are stimulated through lead(s) inserted into the brain and connected to an implantable neurostimulator through extensions running under the skin. A medical professional uses an external programmer to set and adjust stimulation settings.
