Prospera™ Spinal Cord Stimulation System with Embrace One™

Profile photo of a smiling Prospera SCS patient surrounded by the Embrace One logo. The tagline reads: Helping Your Patients Embrace Life Again.

The Prospera Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) System with Embrace One is enhancing the SCS experience with a first-of-its-kind approach: one that’s not just implanted, but truly connected to the needs of patients and providers. Through automatic, objective, daily remote monitoring of the device and therapy, we put true proactive care* into action so that the therapy you prescribe remains optimized for each patient, every day, over the lifetime of the therapy.

Keeping therapy optimized with conventional SCS systems can be a challenge

While clinical studies have demonstrated long-term effectiveness of SCS1-5, in the real world, loss of efficacy and explantation are commonly reported despite the introduction of advanced SCS technology6-9. Simple device issues often go undetected for far too long, which can negatively impact patients in a number of ways.

The Prospera SCS System with Embrace One offers relief like no other

RESONANCE™ Technology

An evolution in therapeutic stimulation

RESONANCE powered by BioARCTM uses a proprietary pattern of stimulation to activate the dorsal horn where pain is processed.

  • Delivers a sequence of micropulses with each unit of stimulation
  • Stimulates and charge balances simultaneously by rapidly rotating a cathode between up to 4 selected electrodes.
  • Achieves up to a 300% increase in pulse density, while reducing the charge of each micropulse.11,13§ This design is intended to eliminate the problem of overstimulation

Watch the video to see how RESONANCE multiphase stimulation works.


Shown to have a substantial effect on dorsal horn structures14§

RESONANCE drives a deeper response into the dorsal horn where pain is processed, targeting the body’s own inhibitory pathway and the natural properties of spatial and temporal summative response.

BioARC keeps programming simple and stimulation personalized

The unique stimulation pattern of BioARC allows you to focus your expertise on patient care rather than on programming.

Brief Summary: Please reference the appropriate product Instructions for Use (IFU) for more information regarding indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions, and potential adverse events. Indications for Use: The Prospera™ Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) System is indicated as an aid in the management of chronic, intractable pain in the trunk and/or limbs, which may include unilateral or bilateral pain. Contraindications: Implantation of a spinal cord stimulator may be contraindicated in patients who are unable to operate the SCS system, or who have failed to receive effective pain relief during SCS trial stimulation, or who are poor candidates for surgery. Note that the safety and effectiveness of Prospera SCS system has not been established in pediatric patients or pregnant or nursing patients. Warnings: The following may cause electromagnetic interference, adverse interactions, insufficient or excessive stimulation, damage and function loss of the system, and/or therapy failure: external defibrillation, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENs), lithotripsy, RF ablation, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, electrocautery, diathermy therapy (including shortwave, microwave, and therapeutic ultrasound therapies), high-power ultrasound, radiation therapy, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan (refer to Prospera SCS System MRI Guidelines for the system’s MR conditional information), use of portable RF communication equipment near the SCS system, use of a non-BIOTRONIK-provided charger. The Prospera SCS System may interfere with the operation of implanted pacemakers or ICDs. The effects of an implanted Prospera SCS System on other neurostimulators are unknown. Precautions: Device malfunction, loss of therapy, and other adverse events including patient injury may occur if the device is not handled or operated properly as described in the IFU. Refer to the product IFU for comprehensive safety messages when handling the device. Potential Adverse Events: Risks associated with SCS system placement: pain at the implant site, infection, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leakage, CSF fistula, epidural hemorrhage, bacterial meningitis, seroma, hematoma, paralysis. Additional risks associated with SCS system use: lead migration; stimulator migration; allergic response or tissue reaction to the implanted system material; skin erosion; radicular chest wall stimulation; disturbed urination; dysesthesia; decubitus; premature battery depletion; and uncomfortable stimulation or ineffective pain management. Furthermore, there is the risk that the SCS therapy may not be effective in relieving symptoms or may cause worsening of symptoms. Refer to the product IFU for a comprehensive list of potential adverse events.
