Abstract

The aim of this study is to investigate the use of a step pulse to obtain selective small fiber activation by anodal blocking. The charge of a step pulse is less compared to the conventional rectangular pulse and would be therefore safer in a chronic application. Acute experiments on pigs show that using a step pulse, charge reduction up to 13 % can be achieved.
