Subjective patient response to pain therapy is not enough
What if you had objective data?

Until today, the study of pain management has relied almost exclusively on subjective patient response:

  • Pain relief – VAS
  • Quality of life – EQ5D/SF36
  • Pain medication reduction – patient diary
  • Patient satisfaction – survey
Traditional criteria today measure pain relief and quality of life improvement based on the individual patient’s subjective feedback on pain therapy.

The patient’s response is important, but the ability to evaluate therapy efficacy based on objective external measures has not been possible – until now.

The same technology that enables RestoreSensor to sense patient position and automatically adapt stimulation also enables the device to record the amount of time a patient spends in different positions.
