Medtronic electrically evoked compound action potentials human observation study (ECHO-MDT)
The Medtronic ECHO-MDT clinical study collects spinal cord activation signals during different SCS settings and postural changes. The study involves patients already undergoing a Medtronic SCS trial and collects data from subjects during a short in-clinic visit at the conclusion of their SCS trial.
