DBS is used in typical neurological conditions of Essential tremor, Parkinson’s disease and Dystonia. The DBS consists of implanted pulse generator, electrodes and extension cables which interface with external Programmer module and wireless battery charger. 

As per the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between BARC & SCTMIST yesterday, BARC will develop the device as per specifications provided by SCTMIST and SCTMIST will be responsible for clinical trials, testing and qualification. Electronics Division, Reactor Control Division and Centre for Design & Manufacture of BARC will participate in the development of various subsystems.
