Abstract

See full text

Articles and methods for non-invasively treating peripheral neuropathy via transcutaneous electrical stimulation of target nerve tissue are described. An exemplary article includes a support on which an electrode pair is positioned; a controller attached to the electrode pair via one or more leads; and a power supply connected to the controller. The article delivers electrical stimulation to the target nerve tissue via the electrode pair at a level sufficient to initiate vasodilation of vasculature within or adjacent the tissue. Meanwhile, the method includes positioning at least one electrode pair adjacent an area of skin overlying or in close proximity to the target nerve tissue and delivering electrical stimulation to the tissue via the electrode pair. The electrical stimulation is delivered at a level sufficient to initiate vasodilation of vasculature within or adjacent the tissue. An implantable system and method for treating peripheral neuropathy via percutaneous electrical stimulation are also described.
