Allocation: N/A
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Evaluation of Long-term Patient Experience With a Medtronic Closed-Loop Spinal Cord Stimulation System

Estimated Study Completion Date : March 31, 2025

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Treatment Device: Inceptiv
Implantable Neurostimulator with Neuro Sense

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Reduction in overstimulation sensation [ Time Frame: 30 days from device activation ]
    Comparison of Neuro Sense On vs Off at in-clinic testing for low-back and/or leg pain subjects. Subjects will perform protocol prescribed activities and rate the intensity of the sensation on a 5-point Likert scale. The average intensity scores during each period will be calculated for each subject. The proportion of low-back and leg pain subjects with a reduction in overstimulation sensation during Neuro Sense On compared to Neuro Sense Off will be calculated, with a one-sided 97.5% lower bound.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Responder rate for treatment of overall pain [ Time Frame: 3 months from device activation ]
    Low-back and/or leg pain subjects

  2. Responder rate for treatment of low-back pain [ Time Frame: 3 months from device activation ]
    Low-back pain subjects (baseline back VAS ≥60mm)

  3. Responder rate for treatment of leg pain [ Time Frame: 3 months from device activation ]
    Leg pain subjects (baseline leg VAS ≥60mm)
