Burst DR Stimulation
Spinal Cord Stimulation traditionally involved tonic stimulation that would target the pain location and use paresthesia to mask the pain sensation. Burst DR is a new waveform or way to deliver electricity that mimics the natural firing pattern of neurons in the brain. Burst DR is unique in that it will affect both the physical and emotional responses to pain.
The recently published BOLD study determined optimal Burst DR dosing and demonstrated 10-year longevity using a recharge free battery.
