In a recent trial, a vegetative-state patient responds to Vagal Nerve Stimulation (VNS) in an experimental therapy.
However, article suggests that VNS may not work as effectively in patients with different patterns of brain damage.
Perhaps a fully-programmable electrical pulse generator platform is ideal for this application, since it is not practical to develop custom pulse generators for every patient using an ASIC-based platform.
Lone Star NeuroMODULATION
LSN is targeting unmet clinical needs by creating disruptive device platforms that offer promising solutions for lowering costs, realizing higher returns and effectively addressing more therapeutic indications if adopted for medical applications.
