Electrode contact configurations for an implantable stimulator










Image Number 10 for United States Patent #7702385.

An exemplary implantable stimulator includes at least one electrode contact array and at least one additional electrode contact. Both the electrode contact array and the additional electrode contact are disposed on an external surface of the stimulator. The electrode contact array includes multiple electrode contacts that are configured to have a first polarity. The additional electrode is configured to have a second polarity. One or more of the electrode contacts disposed on the stimulator are configured to deliver monopolar stimulation and/or multipolar stimulation. Exemplary methods of stimulating a stimulation site within a patient include providing at least one electrode contact array and at least one additional electrode contact. Both the electrode contact array and the additional electrode contact are disposed on an external surface of the stimulator. The electrode contact array includes multiple electrode contacts that are configured to have a first polarity. The additional electrode is configured to have a second polarity. The method further includes applying an electrical stimulation current to the stimulation site via one or more of the electrode contacts that are disposed on the stimulator.
