Lone Star Neuromodulation, Inc. Release: Disruptive Pulse-Generator Technology
11/30/2016 9:54:21 AM
Dallas, TX - Lone Star Neuromodulation, Inc. announces the availability of their
disruptive technology for a fully-featured pulse generator that does not utilize an ASIC
(Application-Specific Integrated Circuit). No custom IC equates to significant cost
savings and a technology with increased functional flexibility. If adopted for medical
use, the offered technology has the potential to afford patients suffering from chronic
pain, Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's--as well as a host of other neurological
disorders--a radically lower-cost, implantable, non-pharmaceutical alternative therapy.
Historically, corporations have spent billions of dollars to support the creation of custom
ICs and operating systems for purpose-built medical devices. Therefore, the biggest
challenge facing Lone Star was in eliminating the need for customization. To
accomplish this, they effectively leveraged advancements in electronic-component
technologies and capitalized on state-of-the-art device-miniaturization techniques.
The resulting programmable 17-electrode pulse generator, in a petite 19.5 cc package,
is comprised primarily of easily sourced, "off-the-shelf" components and can be
produced at a fraction of the cost of comparable, purpose-built units on the market
today. As to being the first to introduce this technology, Lone Star CEO Terry Daglow
noted, "We have to assume that the leading device manufacturers are also working to
develop lower-cost device technologies; but, to our knowledge, we are the first to
succeed in creating a fully-featured pulse generator that does not rely on ASICs."
Lone Star believes that its technology package, which includes a peripheral controller
and wireless battery charger, represents an opportunity with virtually unlimited potential
that will save the acquiring entity years of research and development time. Lone Star
plans to showcase their device at the upcoming NANS conference.
