Has anyone tried the HF10 Spinal Cord Stimulation Device?
Has anyone tried a device called HF10 ? It’s a device which stimulates your spinal cord to help relieve back and leg pain. After a trial period of about a week, if the patient is achieving good results the device is implanted in the person. My pain management doctor has recommended it to me for arm and hand nerve pain. I would like to hear from anyone who has used this device and especially from anyone who has used it for arm and hand pain. Thank you.

Has been recommended but insurance doesn’t pay any or little for any so far. Please post your findings. I Jan EDS and 4 THRs + old!! Need help.
I have one but it never worked.
Guess is all good. Doesn’t work and no info sent = not good company.
Not sure what HF10 refers to, but I had a Boston Scietific Wavewriter installed 3-4 years ago. The Spinal Cord Stimulator (SCS) Implant eliminates the majority of sciatic pain.
At times I am not sure if it helps with Lumbar pain until I notice the back pain increasing and discover that I accidentally turned it off.
The implant does not eliminate as much Lumbar pain as I wish, but it seems to help.
I was skepticle when doing the trial, but with the 95% reduction for sciatica, I am glad that I have it.
I was having major sciatic pain starting several months prior to the implant.
Seeing an Orthopaedic surgeon and a Nuerosurgen this week to discuss a 2nd SCS Implant for the Thoracic area.
I failed the Radio Frequency Ablation tests for the Lumbar and Thoracic areas, injections stopped working, so SCS Implants are about the only option remaining that I am aware of for my problems.
Good luck with your never ending struggles to reduce PAIN.
