Postural Changes in Spinal Cord Stimulation Thresholds: Current and Voltage Sources.

North RB, Sung JH, Matthews LA, Zander HJ, Lempka SF

Abstract

Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) thresholds are known to change with body position; however, these changes have not been fully characterized for both “constant-voltage” and “constant-current” pulse generators. This study aimed to evaluate and quantify changes in psychophysical thresholds resulting from postural changes that may affect both conventional paresthesia-based SCS and novel paresthesia-free SCS technologies.
