Acute and chronic stimulation with the Injectrode transcutaneously and through interconnectable implantable waveform generators


Description

Trial leads are used to evaluate response to neuromodulation therapies prior to a definitive implantation. After the trial period, currently available leads require removal and replacement with a permanent lead. Unfortunately, successful trials are often followed by inefficacious permanent implants, potentially due to positional placement sensitivity and/or scar tissue at the implant site. To address this issue, we developed the fully needle-implanted InjectrodeⓇ which facilitates a trial period, followed by a straightforward conversion to chronic therapy through either: 1) augmented transcutaneous stimulation, or 2) attachment to implanted pulse generators as demonstrated here in a rodent sciatic nerve model.
