Kevin L Kilgore, Warren M Grill, Cameron C McIntyre, John Thomas Mortimer: Systems and methods for reversibly blocking nerve activity. Case Western Reserve University, Renner Otto Boisselle & Sklar, June 17, 2008: US07389145 (113 worldwide citation)

Systems and methods for blocking nerve impulses use an implanted electrode located on or around a nerve. A specific waveform is used that causes the nerve membrane to become incapable of transmitting an action potential. The membrane is only affected underneath the electrode, and the effect is immed ...

Kevin L Kilgore, Niloy Bhadra: Onset-mitigating high-frequency nerve block. Boston Scientific Corporation, Tarolli Sundheim Covell & Tummino, March 17, 2015: US08983614 (1 worldwide citation)

A method of blocking signal transmission through a nerve with reduced onset activity includes applying an HFAC to an axon of a nerve to block the transmission of signals through the axon. The method may also include applying a direct current (DC) to the axon, increasing the amplitude of the DC over ...
