Current Enrolling Trials*
Most of our Research Studies do reimburse for time and travel for participation.
You may be eligible to participate in one of our studies if you qualify.
The purpose of this research study is to show whether the study device the Evoke Spinal Cord Stimulator System, is safe and works to treat chronic pain in your trunk(back) and lower limbs (legs). This study will provide information that may help make this device more widely available to other people with chronic pain.
The Evoke System is designed to stimulate your spinal cord to potentially relieve your pain. The study device has two parts that are placed surgically (implanted):1) the stimulator (battery pack) that is placed under the skin in the buttocks or abdomen, and 2) up to 2 leads (wires) that are inserted next to your spinal cord and connected to the stimulator. This is an investigational (experimental) device, and has not yet been approved by the FDA.
Painful Diabetic Neuropathy
The purpose of this study is to find out whether electrical stimulation of the spinal cord using the Senza system is safe and useful in the treatment of chronic (long-term) pain of the lower limbs due to painful diabetic neuropathy.
The research study is evaluating the safety and effectiveness of an electrical nerve stimulation device called a spinal cord stimulator (SCS) because you have pain in the lower limbs.
SCS involves the surgical placement of two leads (which look like very thin wires) into a small area near your spinal cord. Electrical stimulation is delivered through these wires, in an attempt to provide pain relief.
The SCS system used in this study is the Senza System, made by Nevro Corp. The device is a small, battery-operated, rechargeable SCS with an attached electrode. The Senza System has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
A research study using a commercially approved Boston Scientific neurostimulation systems indicated for the treatment of chronic pain to better understand the long-term results of chronic pain patients treated with a BSC neurostimulation system. To participate in the Relief/Navitas study you need to have low back back or chronic leg pain.
