Neuros Medical’s Jon Snyder

Neuros Medical, a medical device company in Cleveland, was presented the 2012 Gold Electrode Award for Most Promising Startup at the Neurotech Leaders Forum conference in San Francisco. The award is given by Neurotech Reports.

“Neuros Medical represents a company that has created a strong focused market, and is executing the development of their technology in a sound and effective manner,” said James Cavuoto, editor and publisher of Neurotech Reports. “Neuros holds strong promise for patients suffering from chronic amputation pain, as well as other potential applications.”

“We are honored to be recognized by such a prestigious and respected organization at the Neurotech Leaders Forum,” said Neuros Medical President and CEO Jon Snyder. “We feel fortunate to be part of an exclusive list of previous awardees and will use this award to continue to validate our past accomplishments and our future potential,” he added.

Neuros Medical is currently underway with a pilot clinical trial to evaluate the company’s patented high frequency Electrical Nerve Block technology for use in acute treatment of pain in the residual limb of amputees. This study builds upon their successful first-in-man results in their initial study, in which 4 out of 5 patients reported over 50% pain reduction.
