SCS patients adjust their neurostimulator to deal with sub-optimal posture-related stimulation.
To counter changes in stimulation, SCS patients adjust amplitude relative to position
Schade CM et al, 2009
  • Medtronic conducted a research study to identify the variation of patient-preferred stimulation amplitudes and therapy impedance in different postures. 20 patients were enrolled in this study
  • As can be seen on the above graph, depending on their position, patients have different preferred amplitudes. For example, patients prefer a low amplitude in the supine position
