Therapy as unique as your patients’ pain

Every patient’s pain is unique. The Spectra WaveWriter Spinal Cord Stimulator System is engineered to help address the individual nature of pain for better short-term and long-term relief.

How it works

Personalized pain relief  

With real-time patient therapy ratings and corresponding patient optimization reports, the Spectra WaveWriter SCS System is designed to help you personalize each patient’s therapy and fine-tune your approach as their pain changes over time.

Randomized controlled trials have shown:

  • There may be different mechanisms involved with different therapies.1
  • Some patients may only respond to one therapy.2
  • Multiple therapies provide superior outcomes when patients are able to choose the most effective therapy.3

Why choose the Spectra WaveWriter SCS System

The Spectra WaveWriter SCS System is designed to simplify personalization and provide the type of stimulation your patients need—when and where they need it.

This SCS system features:

  • Paresthesia and sub-perception therapies
  • 32 contacts and 4 ports
  • Leads spanning up to 3 vertebral levels
  • Combination Therapy for the ability to layer waveforms simultaneously
  • Contour™ Therapy for broad paresthesia-free coverage across multiple neural targets

MRI conditional symbol.

The Precision Spectra™ or Spectra Wave Writer™ SCS System with ImageReady™ MRI Technology is “MR-Conditional” only when exposed to the MRI environment under the specific conditions defined in the ImageReady MRI Guidelines for Precision Spectra or Spectra WaveWriter Spinal Cord Stimulator Systems.

Sub-perception stimulation has been demonstrated to be safe and effective in patients who have been treated successfully with conventional, paresthesia-inducing stimulation for at least six months. Full stimulation parameter ranges and options for both paresthesia based and sub-perception therapy are available for clinician’s use throughout the patient’s experience and treatment with SCS.

Results from clinical studies are not predictive of results in other studies. Results in other studies may vary.
