Spectra WaveWriter SCS System
About the Spectra WaveWriter Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) System
With the Spectra WaveWriter SCS system, multiple therapies can be used to treat multiple pain areas at the same time. If you have pain in your low back, leg, and foot for instance, the system can send a different type of stimulation to each area, giving you a better chance of finding the relief you need.
Spinal cord stimulation is a safe FDA-approved pain management therapy that’s proven to help reduce chronic pain over the long term. And with the Boston Scientific Spectra WaveWriter SCS System, your treatment can be personalized for your specific needs, helping deliver deeper, more targeted relief
How Spinal Cord Stimulation Works
The Spectra WaveWriter SCS System offers:
Multiple Therapies in One Device
Most SCS Systems replace the feeling of pain with a soothing massage-like sensation called “paresthesia.” Some SCS systems treat pain without paresthesia, using a type of stimulation you can’t feel. The Spectra WaveWriter SCS system combines both options in a single device.
Real-Time Therapy Feedback
The Spectra WaveWriter SCS system allows you to partner with your doctor to get even more personalized treatment. The System can be programmed to automatically rotate through different types of stimulation. You can then rate the changing therapies in real time using your remote. The system generates a ratings report that helps your doctor see what treatments work best for your unique pain.
Broader Coverage of Your Unique Pain Area
To get the best possible pain relief, your SCS system needs to be able to target the right part of your spinal cord. The Spectra WaveWriter SCS system features advanced software and leads with up to 32 contacts that enable it to cover a wider are of the spine than conventional systems. This makes it easier to find your unique pain relief “target” – and to maintain therapy in the right spot if the target moves over time.
