What is Spinal Cord Stimulation?
Spinal Cord Stimulation is a type of implantable Neuromodulation device that uses electrical signals to select areas of the spinal cord for the treatment of certain chronic pain conditions.
There are two stages to a Spinal Cord Stimulation procedure, the trial stage followed by a final implantation stage. At the trial stage, a thin, flexible wire is placed in the area near the spine, using a special needle. The wires are then connected to an external wireless generator device that’s secured to your back during the trial. Once set up, the patient will then spend anywhere from 1 – 2 weeks trialling the system to see if it benefits them. If the patient feels like the pain has significantly improved during the trial a final permanent implantation will be arranged.
Research has shown that between five and seven out of ten cases found the therapy to significantly reduce pain for chronic conditions such as neuropathic (nerve) pain, failed back surgery syndrome and complex regional pain syndrome. It is advised however that spinal cord stimulation should only be used for patients who have severe chronic pain that is highly effecting and limiting everyday life and those who have already tried all reasonable therapies including (but not limited to) physiotherapy and painkiller medication.

Neurimpulse Peripheral Nerve Stimulation System
The Neurimpulse Peripheral Nerve Stimulation System is a non-rechargeable, tetra polar pulse generator dedicated to peripheral nerve stimulation to help treat a number of chronic pain conditions. It has two functions which allow for daily and circadian programming and an independent ON and OFF function which can offer cooling off periods for the patient as well as considerable energy saving.
The main benefits are:
- Daily Function: Daily programming of the switch on/off hour with one minute resolution.
- Circadian Function: Amplitude stimulation programming hour by hour, within 24 hours, between minimum and maximum values chosen by the physician.
