Abstract

This idea describes a stimulation programming control surface that provides the ability to adjust multiple parameters and electrode configurations simultaneously. Programming for tissue stimulation systems involves the clinician manually adjusting several parameters at a time in order to selectively stimulate a specific target without stimulating neighboring, but unwanted targets, due to possible side-effects. The clinician can achieve stimulation selectivity by having more control over automated current steering that concurrently alters electrode spacing, stimulation amplitude, and stimulation pulse width.
