How It Works

The ATI™ Neurostimulation System delivers low-level energy directly to the area of the SPG. The System includes:

  1. The ATI Neurostimulator: A miniaturized neurostimulator (smaller than an almond) with an integral lead designed to fit ranging facial anatomy.
  2. The Remote Controller: A hand-held device with simple therapy controls provides on-demand patient-controlled SPG stimulation therapy. Therapy settings are individualized and can be adjusted quickly by physicians using a customized laptop computer.

The ATI Neurostimulator is inserted through a small incision in the upper gum above the second molar and positioned at the SPG nerve bundle. The SPG is located deep in the face on either side of the nose. The neurostimulator is placed on the same side of the patient’s headache pain. The procedure leaves no external scars.

patient using ATI Neurostimulation SystemThe patient controls his or her own stimulation treatment by turning on the Remote Controller and placing it on the cheek over the inserted ATI Neurostimulator. To stop treatment, the Remote Controller is simply removed from the cheek, turning off stimulation therapy.

The Pathway CH-2 study is evaluating the ATI™ Neurostimulation System in patients suffering from chronic cluster headache.
