Soin develops spinal cord stimulator to treat pain

March 6, 2020 0 By FM

Soin Neuroscience has developed a new spinal cord stimulation device to treat chronic pain. The company has recently started early-stage human proof of concept studies.

Electrical wires called leads are inserted into the epidural space of the spine and electrical stimulation is administered to the spine to decrease a patient’s perception of pain.

Testing of the device has begun in Dayton, Ohio, and multiple patients who have tried the device have noted some significant pain relief. 

Currently, the device is investigational and not FDA approved for use in humans and patients who have trialed the system are part of an approved early pilot study. The device is not available for commercial use and given that only initial testing has been completed, the company said.
