Summary

This disclaimer and any questions or matters of any nature arising from or relating to the content or use (or misuse) of this document will be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the Province of Ontario and the laws of Canada applicable therein, and all proceedings shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the Province of Ontario, Canada. [...] The patient uses a remote control to deliver 30-minute treatment sessions two times per day, during which the device alternately contracts and relaxes the multifidus muscle found along the length of the spine to stabilize the lower back in order to relieve lower back pain. [...] As with TheraSphere (described in this section), the microspheres are injected into the artery in the liver, delivering radiation directly to the tumour and limiting the amount of radiation the healthy tissue is exposed to. [...] Carelink is intended to shorten the time to treatment in the case of an adverse event, as well as reduce the need for in-person follow-up appointments and the use of health care resources. [...] The technology allows medication to be delivered directly to a blood clot, allowing for a higher concentration of the drug to reach the clot than is possible when the medication is administered intravenously.
