WAVE IV Clinical Study

The WAVE IV Clinical Study uses a completely non-invasive technology intended to reduce high blood pressure. Renal denervation is a procedure where the renal (kidney) nerves are treated by the delivery of ultrasound energy from outside of the body. This clinical trial is designed to assess the safety and effectiveness of the Surround Sound® Hypertension Therapy System. WAVE IV will enroll participants at leading health care institutions in Austria, Germany, Poland and the United Kingdom.

You may be eligible to participate in the WAVE IV Clinical Study if you answer YES to the following questions:

  • Are you at least 18 years of age and no more than 90 years of age (Germany/Austria: 80 years of age)?
  • Is your Systolic blood pressure (top number) greater than 160 mmHg?
  • Are you currently taking 3 or more prescription medications for your high blood pressure?
