Spinal Modulation was founded by Mir Imran in Menlo Park, CA in 2004. The company has developed an implantable neurostimulator to deliver signals to the primary sensory neurons located within the dorsal root ganglion (DRG). The idea is that unlike dorsal column spinal cord stimulation, the Spinal Modulation system breaks the pain signal’s path before it enters the spinal cord.
On December 11, 2011, Spinal Modulation announced that it had received the CE Mark for its DRG neurostimulator for the management of chronic intractable pain.
