Spinal Modulation has obtained CE mark for its Spinal Modulation Neurostimulator System used to treat chronic intractable pain.

The Spinal Modulation System uses low-level electrical signals to modulate dorsal root ganglion (DRG) tissue and also interrupt pain signals reaching the brain.

Sint Antonius Hospital Pain Management Practice director Liong Liem said with the Spinal Modulation System, we have seen encouraging results in patients with lower extremities type of pain condition.

The company plans to present prospective, multicenter clinical trial which is designed to assess the management of chronic pain through stimulation of the DRG.
