H-wave Electrical Stimulation Not Covered

March 2014

WSI does not cover H-wave electrical stimulation, as it is investigational and experimental.

There is insufficient evidence to show the H-wave stimulation is more effective than transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS). Additionally, there are no quality studies evaluating H-wave stimulation for the treatment of acute, subacute or chronic pain syndromes.
