Sharing Data with Your Doctor

You play an important role in your epilepsy care. By collecting and sending information from your RNS System device (neurostimulator) to a secure database, you can help your doctor personalize and optimize your care over time.

Using Your Remote Monitor

The wand and remote monitor allow you to collect information from the neurostimulator and send the information to your doctor.

Using Your Magnet

The RNS magnet enables you to record brain activity when you choose, such as when you are experiencing a seizure. Following your physician’s instructions and the Patient Manual, swipe the magnet over the neurostimulator to instruct it to record.

Take Your Epilepsy Care to a Powerful New Level

Seizure diary information recorded in Seizure TrackerTM can be combined with data from your NeuroPace RNS System. This can give your doctor powerful insights into your epilepsy.

FAQs

How often should I use my remote monitor?

NeuroPace recommends you transfer data from the neurostimulator to the remote monitor at least once a day, as well as after a seizure. You should transfer data from the remote monitor to a secure database at least once per week. It is important that you talk to your physician about how often they would like you to use your remote monitor.

Can I get an MRI?

Individuals who have the model RNS-320 Neurostimulator are eligible for MRIs under certain conditions. People with the model RNS-300M Neurostimulator CANNOT receive an MRI.

I am going on a trip and will be traveling by plane, will I have a problem going through airport security with my device?

Airport scanners will not damage the system but could cause or temporarily disrupt stimulation. You may want to let TSA personnel know that you have an implanted medical device by showing them your Medical Implant Identification Card. You may also want to bypass a body scan and opt for a pat-down security inspection. You can find more detailed instructions in the “Traveling with the RNS System” section of your Patient Manual.
