DTM™ SCS endurance
therapy overview

Inspired by science

DTM™ SCS therapy options are inspired by decades of basic science research and preclinical understanding. In a preclinical study, the DTM™ programming (DTMP) derivatives modulated neuro-inflammatory processes more than low-rate SCS.*2

Clinical results show meaningful pain relief

Study objectives

DTM™ SCS endurance therapy study is a prospective, multicenter, single-arm study designed to evaluate the long-term efficacy and energy use of DTM™ SCS endurance therapy.1

Primary objective: To evaluate the effectiveness of DTM™ SCS endurance therapy in reducing overall pain intensity at 3-months follow up.

Secondary objectives with follow up to 12-months:

  • Characterize changes in pain intensity for overall, back, and leg pain
  • Characterize programming parameters associated with energy use
  • Characterize changes in functional disability as measured by Oswestry disability index (ODI)
  • Characterize subject satisfaction
  • Characterize therapy safety data
