Position change can be uncomfortable for many SCS patients.
“Lying down” is reported to be the main source of SCS patients’ uncomfortable stimulation
Kuechmann C et al, 2009
  • These market research data revealed that SCS patients mainly experience pain when changing posture
  • These position-related uncomfortable stimulations are described as jolts, pains, or shocks by patients
  • Three of the four most often reported triggers for uncomfortable stimulation were associated with position change (Lie down, sleep, standing after sitting or lying)
  • When asked “When does stimulation become uncomfortable?”, 58% of the 119 enrolled patients identify lying down as a trigger
