If a neurological remote controlled implant is no longer supported

A patient report noted that he found no further support after the withdrawal of the manufacturer of a neurostimulating implant. The device is implanted in the maxilla. He had a cluster headache that was relieved by the device.
In another case, distribution of an ocular implant was discontinued because it was not profitable to sell.
Control and energy supply of such implants can be induced from outside. Patients experience problems when distribution of the devices or replacement parts is discontinued. Sometimes it is possible to use a competing product, but this is not always successful.
