Fondecyt 11190822: Model-based analysis of a novel modality of spinal cord stimulation for the treatment of chronic pain

Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) is a well-established therapy to relieve pain in subjects with chronic pain. In this therapy, electrical currents are delivered to the dorsal column (DC) of the spinal cord via electrodes implanted in the epidural space.

Quantitative Analysis of Kilohertz-Frequency Neurostimulation

Mainstream electrical stimulation therapies, e.g., spinal cord stimulation (SCS) and deep brain stimulation, use pulse trains that are delivered at rates no higher than 200 Hz. In recent years, stimulation of nerve fibers using kilohertz-frequency …

Volume conductor model of transcutaneous electrical stimulation with kilohertz signals.

OBJECTIVE: Incorporating high-frequency components in transcutaneous electrical stimulation (TES) waveforms may make it possible to stimulate deeper nerve fibers since the impedance of tissue declines with increasing frequency. However, the …

Circuit and volume conductor models of transcutaneous electrical stimulation

Electrical stimulation of peripheral nerves is a widespread technique for the treatment of neurological diseases and disorders. However, peripheral stimulation typically requires surgical implantation of an electrode and a pulse generator. …
