Product Usage:
The Infinity IPG is an electronic device designed to be connected to one or two extensions. It is powered by a hermetically sealed battery within a titanium case and uses microelectronic circuitry to generate constant-current electrical stimulation. The IPG is conductive on all sides, which allows the IPG case (also called a can) to be used as an anode for monopolar stimulation. The IPG communicates wirelessly with system programmers and controllers, and IPGs are available in small and large sizes to accommodate different power needs.
