The St. Jude Medical™ Patient Controller (PC) app was developed by St. Jude Medical, now known as Abbott. This app is for people living with chronic pain and neurologic disorders who are treated by Abbott neuromodulation devices. This app helps patients conveniently manage the programs prescribed by their physicians and communicates with the implanted/external device using Bluetooth wireless technology. The PC app runs on Abbott recommended devices (as mentioned below) and is easy to use while the wireless interface brings more flexibility and comfort.
Some of the key functions available for patients to manage their device include:
- Turn stimulation ON/OFF
- Select stimulation programs for changing therapy needs
- Adjust stimulation amplitude
- Check device battery
- Turn on MRI mode for MR-conditional scans
- Activate and de-activate Surgery Mode
- iPod Touch 6th Generation running iOS 11.1 or later.
- ***This Application will work on iPod Touch only.***

Continuous improvement updates to the 3.7.3 app version.
Expanded impedance range for MRI Mode
Potential device longevity improvement with BoldXR™ intermittent stimulation settings
Ratings and Reviews
Glad I checked before updating iPod to IOS12
I see reviews that say this app doesn’t work on the latest IOS. For a medical device controller I would think you would have tested that. Fortunately I checked as I can’t do without my DBS till you get that figured out. I turned off auto updating on the iPod since its not used for anything else. I agree that running on my phone would be way more convenient as well. Here’s one more request to make that happen. Please....
Can’t wait to have my life back!!
This is my 3rd implant of this DCS, I was the first person in my community years ago to have the implant years ago and after I had it my life changed dramatically I went back to work after being out for years!! I was loving finally having my life back and my pain under control. Well that was Medtronics, if course my doctor was approached to use a different system by St. Jude’s and he decided he wanted to replace the perfectly good system I had that was working. I said ok and after he did that it worked pretty good for a couple years with a few mishaps they had to reprogram me a few times. Then all of a sudden my system stopped working. And for about 3 years I was in awful pain. My dr came to me saying they came out with a rechargeable system so much better than the one I’m used to. Well I said ok and I’m a little over a month out of surgery and so far so good there is a new burst feature where you don’t feel the stimulation it’s perfect and doing this on an iPod genius just wish I could download the app on my iPhone.
St Jude paddle type neurostimulator
I was previously on what I call the 1 wire system and surgery for placement was easy even having to be awake to test placement on the nerves in my spine and worked great for years. Watery infection at the generator site required removal of complete system after a few yrs. After my pocket for the generator finally closed up, my spinal canal narrowed and I now have the the paddle version . No complaints and still works as my other did but required a bit more surgery to remove arthritic growth to put the implant in place. Recovery a bit longer but it delivers the stimulation in my back and legs. The controller has a software glitch but St Jude monitors closely . My previous 2 implants were Medtronics. Worked well but after a battery replacement , the stimulation was a little off what I was used to. .
