DALLAS, Dec. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- 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.
