University of Florida medical student Kaihan Fakhar published an important paper this month on estimation of deep brain stimulator battery life. This paper was a follow-up to a previous medical student’s work (Mike Montuno) developing electronic web-based estimators for clinicians and patients. This is a very important paper which lays out important principles in long term management of deep brain stimultors.
