A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11848090B2) discloses a method for providing a simulation of a neurostimulator programming session. The method involves coupling a trainer device to a neurostimulator programmer (NP) to simulate one or more neurostimulators. The trainer device transmits simulated error information to the NP, receives user input responses to resolve errors, and can also transmit simulated neurostimulator information such as battery status, stimulation program details, and treatment history to the NP.

Furthermore, the patent details various aspects of the method, including selecting errors from a predetermined list, simulating different error conditions like low battery or faulty leads, cycling between pulse-generator modes, and displaying error simulations upon user request. The trainer device also features indicators for stimulation status, pulse-generator modes, and error simulation. Additionally, the circuitry of the trainer device includes components for simulating neurostimulators and lead placement, with the ability to measure impedance and transmit relevant information to the NP. The trainer device can be connected to the NP via cables or wirelessly, and can register resolved errors within its local memory for tracking purposes. Overall, the patented method and trainer device aim to enhance training sessions for neurostimulator programming by providing a realistic simulation environment for clinicians.
