Freedom SCS System
The Freedom Spinal Cord Stimulator (SCS) System is used to treat chronic pain with placement of electrodes in the epidural space of the spinal column. SCS has been used for the relief of chronic back and leg pain for many decades. Now with Freedom SCS, the footprint of the implantable components are very small with no potential hazards from implantable batteries and are Full Body 3T MRI conditional. The therapy utilizes pulsed electrical current to create an energy field that acts on nerves near the spinal column. The energy field generated at the electrodes intercepts the pain signals that originate from nerves in and around the spine from traveling to the brain, functionally blocking the pain signal.
