Company is also developing a percutaneous (through a needle) delivery system for paddle leads
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., March 16, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- NeuroOne Medical Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: NMTC) ("NeuroOne" or the "Company"), a medical technology company focused on improving surgical care options and outcomes for patients suffering from neurological disorders, today announced the successful completion of an initial animal implant of its novel thin film paddle leads for spinal cord stimulation. The devices are intended for the treatment of patients with chronic back pain due to multiple failed back surgery syndrome, intractable low back and leg pain.
The study evaluated the feasibility of implanting a variety of sizes and shapes of ultra-thin paddle leads in a sheep model. A mini laminectomy surgical approach was used to gain access to the epidural space for device placement. All devices were easily advanced to the target location in under one minute. A competitive silicone-based lead was also placed for comparison purposes. The NeuroOne lead fit comfortably in the epidural space and the veterinary surgeon reported no concerns regarding the placement of the lead.
These results demonstrated feasibility for placement of a thin film paddle lead intended to treat chronic back pain due to multiple failed back surgeries. More testing will be completed to optimize the design and placement. The Company is also developing a percutaneous (through a needle) paddle lead placement system which would eliminate the need for an incision in the patient's back. The preliminary bench top testing for this percutaneous approach has also been successfully completed.
Dave Rosa, CEO of NeuroOne, commented, "This represents a major milestone for the Company as we continue our development of innovative devices that provide therapeutic properties coupled with recording capabilities. The market opportunity for spinal cord stimulation is large and growing. We believe our technology can fill a market need for improved patient outcomes due in part to its potential ability to place a paddle device through a needle, provide a larger stimulation surface area of the spinal cord, better conformability with the tissue and improve battery life of devices, reducing the frequency of patient's need to recharge or replace the battery."
NeuroOne Medical Technologies Corporation is a developmental stage company committed to providing minimally invasive and hi-definition solutions for EEG recording, brain stimulation and ablation solutions for patients suffering from epilepsy, Parkinson's disease, dystonia, essential tremors, chronic pain due to failed back surgeries and other related neurological disorders that may improve patient outcomes and reduce procedural costs. The Company may also pursue applications for other areas such as depression, mood disorders, pain, incontinence, high blood pressure, and artificial intelligence.
