For a long time, the cure for diabetes type 1 and type 2 has relied on agonizing insulin shots for patients or insulin infusion via mechanical pumps. Regarding this, experts have been creating artificial pancreatic beta cells with the he…
DelveInsight's, "Deep Brain Stimulation Devices - Pipeline Insight and Competitive Landscape, 2020," report provides comprehensive insights about 20+ companies and 23+ pipeline devices in deep brain stimulation (DBS) devices pipeline landscape. The DBS market is expected to undergo substantial growth in the coming years owning to an increasing prevalence of neurological disorders around the world. The growing aging population is also a major growth factor for DBS devices market as it is more susceptible to neurological disorders like Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease and Epilepsy. Therefore, due to an increase in demand of such devices, huge investment is being made on R&D activities in neurological sector, which is the major reason for an extensive pipeline in this segment.
This reports provides a detailed study of the emerging DBS devices along with competitive landscape to help better understand the emerging DBS devices.

Deep Brain Stimulation Devices Overview
Deep Brain Stimulation Devices: Understanding
The deep brain stimulation device is a battery-operated, surgically-implanted device. It is sometimes called a pacemaker for the brain. DBSs are commonly used to treat movement disorders as well as neuropsychiatric disorders. DBS is a therapy that relies on the delivery of mild electrical pulses to specific areas in the brain via an implanted lead connected to a battery-powered pulse generator placed in the patient's upper chest area. A physician is able to vary and control the stimulation delivered through the lead to the brain using an external, hand-held programmer. At present, DBS systems use leads with electrodes that send out electrical current in all direction.
Who needs a deep brain stimulation device?
Patients with the following disorder:
- Essential tremor
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder
- Parkinson's disease

- Major Players in DBS Devices
There are approx. 20+ key companies which are developing the products for DBS devices.
- directSTIM DBS System: Aleva Neurotherapeutics SA.
Aleva's revolutionary DBS system incorporates directional electrode technology and is designed to be more precise and efficient, with optimized stimulation that will potentially reduce side effects. At present, Aleva is the only emerging technology company to be awarded the CE-Mark for Deep Brain Stimulation.
- Picostim: Bioinduction Ltd
Picostim is in clinical trial phase. It is a miniaturized skull-mounted DBS device which is optimized to generate waveforms needed for stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus (STN) and STN region, employing a unique method of controlling stimulation current. The product undergoing clinical trial and is expected to be completed by 2023. It is a single center, open label, non-randomized design with the primary objective of showing similarity in control of motor symptoms for the Picostim device compared with previously published data for existing DBS devices.
