Closed-loop spinal cord stimulation is safe and effective in treating chronic back and leg pain

Takeaway

  • A novel closed-loop spinal cord stimulation system provides superior pain relief in chronic back and leg pain than fixed-output, open-loop spinal cord stimulation.

Why this matters

    This novel stimulation system could facilitate an individualized mechanism-based treatment approach to optimize outcomes, as well as improve the monitoring of spinal cord health.
