With traditional SCS neurostimulation, a small device is used to interrupt pain signals before they reach the brain. The painful feeling is replaced with a different feeling, which some describe as a tingling or massaging sensation.
BurstDR™ stimulation works similarly. However, BurstDR stimulation was designed to manage pain more naturally. It works by mimicking natural patterns found in the brain—modifying pain signals and changing the way your body perceives pain.1 Most patients do not feel any sensation with BurstDR stimulation.2,3 St. Jude Medical offers both therapies—giving you the best chance at success.
