BurstDR™ stimulation: A chance to reclaim your life
When you feel chronic pain, it is because your nerves are sending pain signals to your brain. BurstDR stimulation works to reduce pain by altering the pain signals as they travel to the brain, providing potential relief from your physical pain, as well as the suffering* associated with the pain.2
The majority of patient say they prefer BurstDR™ stimulation compared to traditional neurostimulation.2
BurstDR stimulation has been clinically proven to:
- Provide superior pain relief compared to traditional neurostimulation therapy2
- Reduce or eliminate the tingling sensation felt with traditional neurostimulation2
- Improve ability to perform everyday activities**,2
Only the St. Jude Medical Invisible Trial System offers you the opportunity to try BurstDR stimulation and traditional tonic stimulation in one, easy-to-use system.
If you have tried neurostimulation in the past and it did not work for you, or you experienced unwanted side effects, our trial system can now help you evaluate a new type of neurostimulation called BurstDR stimulation.
While neurostimulation helps most patients experience at least some reduction in pain, not everyone responds in the same way. The amount of pain relief varies with each individual. Complications related to placement and/or use of the device may occur. Complications such as infection, swelling, bruising and possibly the loss of strength or use in an affected limb or muscle group (i.e., paralysis) are possible. Be sure to talk to your doctor about the risks associated with the placement of a neurostimulation system.
