How it works

The low-energy


SCS therapy is a well-established pain treatment used by doctors for more than 50 years. One of our most advanced forms of this therapy is BurstDR™ stimulation. This low-energy treatment for chronic pain has proven to provide relief from both pain and emotional suffering.1†

By understanding how the brain naturally manages pain, doctors created BurstDR stimulation to mimic natural patterns found in the brain.2 It works by using mild electrical pulses to change pain signals as they travel from the spinal cord to the brain,2 and BurstDR stimulation has been proven to provide effective pain relief in low doses.3*

The result: With the Proclaim™ XR SCS system, you can have hassle-free pain relief with a battery that lasts up to 10 years at low-dose settings* without ever needing to charge the system.

Why Proclaim XR

More than 8 out of 10 patients say they prefer

BurstDR stimulation has been clinically proven to:

  • Provide superior relief from pain and its associated suffering, compared to traditional neurostimulation therapy.1
  • Reduce or eliminate the tingling sensation felt with traditional neurostimulation.1
  • Improve the ability to perform everyday activities.1

Try it first

With a temporary evaluation

One of the advantages of the Proclaim XR SCS system is that you can try it out to see how well it works for you before committing to an implanted system. Your pain management doctor will determine if you are a candidate for stimulation therapy with the Proclaim XR SCS system, and may recommend a temporary evaluation.

During the temporary evaluation,
you can see whether the therapy:

  • Provides meaningful pain relief.
  • Improves your ability to perform daily activities.
  • Improves your sleeping habits.

If, at the end of the evaluation period, you and your doctor decide that the Proclaim XR SCS system is right for you, you can choose to have the system implanted.

Please note: The placement of the leads is a surgical procedure that exposes you to certain risks. Complications such as infection, swelling, bruising and possibly the loss of strength in or use of an affected limb or muscle group (i.e., paralysis) are possible. Be sure to talk to your doctor about the risks associated with the placement of a neurostimulation system.

Ask your doctor for the Proclaim XR SCS system. The bold choice in chronic pain relief in a system that lasts up to 10 years at low-dose settings* without the hassle of recharging.


*Up to 10 years of battery longevity at the lowest dose setting: 0.6mA, 500 Ohms, duty cycle 30s on/360s off. NOTE: In neurostimulation therapy, ‘dose’ refers to the delivery of a quantity of energy to tissue. Safety comparisons and specific dose-response curves for each dosage have not been clinically established. Refer to the IFU for additional information. Hassle-free means recharge-free.
