What to expect

From the first discussion with your doctor to getting back to the things you miss, you’ll know what to expect every step along the way.

1.Speak with a physician offering HF10

Find out if HF10 is right for you

Identifying a physician that offers HF10 is an important first step. At your initial consultation, your doctor will assess your condition, discuss relevant treatment options and answer any questions you may have about HF10.

2.Try HF10 in a trial

In 1-4 weeks, you can discover if HF10 is right for you.

The trial system delivers the same therapy as the implanted device. 9 out of 10 people choose to keep it.¹

  • Thin, flexible wires, called leads, are placed beneath the skin and next to the spine.
  • You wear a device under your clothes or on a belt that delivers stimulations to the leads.
  • The system is customised for your pain. You then assess the pain relief and improvement to your daily activities.
  • If you and your doctor agree HF10 works for you, then you can move forward with the implant to use HF10 continuously.

3.The implant procedure

A successful trial opens the door to continuing with HF10.

During a minimally invasive procedure, a small device is implanted under the skin, just above the beltline or in the buttocks area. It’s connected to thin, flexible wires, just like those used in the trial, that are place near the spine. It’s also possible your physician may recommend an alternative approach using a paddle lead, which requires a slightly different procedure.

 

Frequently asked questions

How long will the trial period last?

A typical trial lasts between 1 and 4 weeks. Duration will vary based on your specific condition and the guidance of your care team.

Are there any restrictions after the trial procedure? 

Your care team will tell you what you can and cannot do after the procedure. In general, the device and dressings must remain dry to avoid infection. To ensure the leads stay in the right place, you should not lift your arms above your shoulders or lift heavy objects. Please consult your care team before engaging in any physical activity.

Will I feel the stimulation? 

No. Unlike other spinal cord stimulation systems, HF10 does not create a tingling sensation, known as paresthesia. You may have some procedural pain, but this should subside within 1 or 2 days.

How do I know if the device is working?

When the green light on your Trial Device is flashing, HF10 is on.

Thank you for sharing your experience.

Unfortunately, chronic pain is complex and it is unclear if you are an appropriate candidate for HF10 spinal cord stimulation at this time. Only a physician can recommend a specific treatment, we suggest you continue this discussion with your physician.
