Programmer/Testers, Implantable Incontinence Stimulator
Definition : Programmer/testers designed for noninvasively testing and/or changing the electrical characteristics (i.e., programming) of implanted incontinence (e.g., urinary) stimulators. These devices typically consist of both a computerized unit with programming, testing, and recording capabilities and a programming head that can interact with the implanted stimulator, sending information to the stimulator and/or receiving information previously stored from it. Implantable incontinence stimulator programmer/testers are used during patient checkup to test and/or change the intensity and/or other characteristics of the electrical stimulus applied by the implanted stimulator; they are usually appropriate only for a particular set of implantable pacemakers.
