VisONE Therapy Overview

VisONE® delivers Synchronized Diaphragmatic StimulationTM therapy (SDS® therapy) which modulates intrathoracic pressures, and augments cardiac hemodynamics.

What It Is

A Novel Heart Failure Therapy

Electrical stimulation is delivered to the diaphragm, modulating intrathoracic pressure pulses on the cardiovascular system.

Imperceptible and Benign

Both stimulation and pulsation are asymptomatic, with early feasibility studies demonstrating no negative chronic diaphragmatic or adverse effects.


Our algorithms ensure the forces generated by intrathoracic pulsation supplements those generated by cardiac systole and diastole for each and every beat.

Minimally Invasive

Standard laparoscopic surgical methods are used to place and adjust the system.

System Components

Implantable Pulse Generator (IPG)

Electronic circuity and algorithms to deliver stimulation therapy enclosed in a hermetically sealed titanium and silicone case.

Sensing and Therapy Lead Electrodes

Active fixation bipolar electrodes surgically affixed to the diaphragm.

External Programmer with Telemetry Wand

Wirelessly communicates with the IPG to optimize programming and display diagnostic data.

Laparoscopic Implant Tool

Surgical access via a minimally invasive laparoscopic port.
