Nevro Announces FDA Approval of HFX iQ™ Spinal Cord Stimulation System to Personalize Chronic Pain Treatment

New Generation Senza® HFX iQ™ is the first and only SCS system that uses artificial intelligence to optimize and maintain pain relief using each patient’s response

REDWOOD CITY, CA., October 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Nevro Corp. (NYSE: NVRO), a global medical device company that provides breakthrough, comprehensive solutions for the treatment of chronic pain, today announced that it has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance. for the Senza HFX iQ Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) System.

Senza HFX iQ is the first and only AI-based SCS system that learns from patients. It was developed to address patient-to-patient variability in pain and to help patients optimize and maintain long-term pain relief and improved quality of life. The Senza HFX iQ System is comprised of the HFX iQ Implantable Pulse Generator (IPG), HFX Trial Stimulator, Charger and HFX App and will be launched with algorithms specifically for the treatment of chronic back pain and to the legs, including non-surgical back pain and painful diabetic neuropathy. .

Senza HFX iQ is digital and designed to optimize care by collecting patient data and guiding the patient through a personalized treatment journey. It offers several key advantages over other SCS systems:

  • Patients begin the program most likely to relieve pain, based on the HFX™ algorithm, which was built from over 20 million data points and 80,000 implanted patients;
  • Recommends personalized therapy adjustments informed by patient inputs on the HFX app, including percent pain relief, pain score, change in activity levels, and change in pain medications;
  • Directly adjusts the pain relief schedule on the patient’s IPG from the HFX app on their smartphone, without the need for a separate handheld remote;
  • Captures patient and device data to enable sharing of patient-level results with referring and referring physicians; and
  • Provides a connected digital environment around a patient’s therapy that will enable future updates to the HFX algorithm, as well as new features and capabilities for patients and providers.

“HFX iQ is designed to improve the consistency of pain relief and is the only SCS system that truly personalizes care,” said D. Keith Grossman, Chairman and CEO of Nevro. “Pain is variable from patient to patient and over time. Using big data from our HFX Cloud patient database, our unique HFX algorithm was developed to identify programs where patients were most likely to achieve real-world relief.HFX iQ takes direct input from each patient on their pain and quality of life metrics to become smarter over time and recommend program changes.HFX iQ uses our platform superior 10kHz high frequency therapy, which is proven in clinical trials and further supported by real worldwide evidence from over 90,000 implanted patients.With HFX iQ, our goal is to provide physicians and patients the personalization needed to achieve and maintain the best possible long-term results.We believe that HFX iQ represents the future of SCS therapy.

Nevro will launch a limited version of Senza HFX iQ in the US this quarter, with a broad US market launch planned for early 2023. In addition to US approval for HFX iQ, Nevro has submitted an application for approval in Europe.
