Patients adjust their stimulation to anticipate or react to postural changes.
When asked “When do you prefer to adjust your stimulation?”, 80% of the patients reported making adjustments before or after a position change
Kuechmann C et al, 2009
Of the 84 patients who experience uncomfortable stimulation:
  • 17 (20%) do not know when they adjust their stimulator
  • 17 (20%) fear movement-induced pain and adapt the stimulation before changing positions
  • 50 (60%) adjust their stimulation after changing positions
Altogether, the large majority (80%) of these patients adjust their stimulation to anticipate or accommodate anticipated uncomfortable stimulation associated with postural changes
