Our devices will initially focus on addressing the issue of chronic pain in the trunk and limbs through the use of spinal cord stimulation (SCS).
Chronic pain is pain that lasts for more than three months. This pain can become constant and progressively worse or reoccur periodically; there is no resolution for the underlying cause.
Spinal Cord Stimulation is a process in which thin wires are placed under the skin of the back next to the spine. These wires are called “leads” and carry mild electric pulses which calms the nerves sending pain signals to the brain. These leads are controlled by an implanted pulse generator (IPG) which determines the type and duration of these pulses.
