PMID: 36608962.


A novel, spinal cord stimulation (SCS) system with a battery-free miniaturized implantable pulse generator (IPG) was used in this feasibility study. The system uses an external power source that communicates bidirectionally with the IPG (< 1.5 cm). Human factors, subject comfort, and effects on low back and leg pain were evaluated in this first-in-human study.
