The company expects r-SNM to compete with Medtronic's Interstim non-rechargeable sacral neuromodulation system.

The US FDA approved Axonics’ r-SNM sacral neuromodulation system for treating overactive bladder and urinary retention on 14 November. The agency approved the same device for treating chronic fecal incontinence on 9 September. Axonics expects r-SNM to rival Medtronic's InterStim II non-rechargeable sacral neuromodulation system, but Medtronic claims the r-SNM technology infringes on Medtronic’s intellectual property.
September’s approvals include the US FDA’s approval of Axonics sacral neuromodulator for fecal incontinence and AMO’s Star S4 IR excimer laser for photorefractive keratectomy.
