In this episode, we describe Responsive Neurostimulation for Seizures (or RNS) and the RNS System created by NeuroPace Inc. Mike McKenna from NeuroPace Inc. generously comes on the show to describe his own experience with The RNS System.

Though RNS sounds a lot like VNS, the two technologies are quite different.

Does the RNS System Work?

The NeuroPace Inc. website references the medical trial for the RNS System.

Long-term clinical results demonstrating that the RNS® System for refractory epilepsy significantly reduces seizure frequency in patients, with 1 in 3 people achieving 90% or greater reduction in seizure frequency at nine years.

NeuroPace Inc.

28% of patients experience seizure freedom periods of greater than six months.

NeuroPace Inc.

NeuroPace Inc. has a great tool to determine the nearest Epilepsy Center near you that has knowledge of their RNS System.
