Case Study:

Class III Implantable Device

We designed the electronics and firmware for a nerve-stimulation device that enables control of a clinically obese patient’s eating habits.

We designed a Class III prototype unit with a titanium enclosure and stimulation leads. The device is implantable and the stimulation leads attach to the vagus nerve which prompts the user to control their eating and drinking behavior. An external, hand held wand device communicates wirelessly with the implantable and enables data transfer via the wand to a PC.

For support of the PMA requirements, Pentad created and ran verification and validation test plans / hazards analysis / SRS / SDD / HSIS / trace matrix / SVaP / SVeP / dry run plans and ran full V&V.
