In brief: Baclofen pump

A Baclofen pump is a device that uses an intrathecal (meaning directly into the spinal fluid) method of delivering the medication baclofen.
Baclofen is a medication used for spasticity. The pump (surgically placed under skin of the abdomen) stores and releases prescribed amounts of medicine through a catheter.
