Abstract

The present invention describes a connector system used in conjunction with a dual electrode SCS system which can easily connect to a trial stimulator. The process of connecting the proximal end of a dual electrode to a stylet handle, and then locking the stylet handle within a slot of the connector, allows the medical professional the advantage of minimizing the required steps in connecting the trial stimulator to the SCS system. The trial stimulator can then be used to optimize the position of the electrode along the dura of the spinal cord.
