Wavegate's EllipseTM Spinal Cord Stimulator Platform offers the most advanced treatment of chronic pain. Scroll down to learn more about how our StimuLuxTM Active LoopTM technology may be the right choice for you.

How Spinal Cord Stimulation Works

Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) may be used for the treatment of chronic pain of the trunk and/or limbs when other​ treatments such as medications, physical therapy, and surgery have failed.
Nerves carry pain signals from the body, to the spinal cord, and ultimately to the brain where the sensation of pain is perceived.  SCS works by intercepting these signals within the spinal cord by applying a mild electrical current within the spine using a pacemaker-like battery attached to thin wire leads. A remote control allows the patient to adjust the intensity and the pattern of the electrical stimulation to optimize the pain relief.

Why Wavegate's Ellipse SCS Platform is Unique

Simply put, dose matters. Spinal cord stimulator systems from most manufacturer​s deliver a fixed dose of current, which can be set by the patient, like a setting the volume control on your TV.  However, with changes in body position, the spinal cord moves relative to the electrode array.  This causes a changing dose with body movement.

Clinical studies such as the EVOKE Trial(1) demonstrate that pain relief is significantly superior if a consistent therapeutic dose is maintained.

Wavegate's Ellipse SCS platform features our patented StimuLuxTM technology which optically tracks the spinal cord and adjusts the electrical current to maintain a consistent dose.
