Movement Disorders Specialist, Dr. Drew Falconer, Co-Director, Inova Parkinson’s and Movement Disorders Center in Fairfax, VA discusses the launch of Abbott’s NeuroSphere™ Virtual Clinic, the first technology in the U.S. that allows patients to receive stimulation settings from their doctor without ever leaving their homes. This practice-changing advancement allows patients to remain safe from the COVID-19 pandemic, but still receive the essential care they need for pain or movement disorders. NeuroSphere Virtual Clinic can also help people who may have inadequate access to healthcare, urban or rural, giving them an alternate solution to traveling any distance and to receive much-needed care. The NeuroSphere Virtual Clinic is compatible with Abbott’s suite of neuromodulation technologies.
