About Nexstim Plc

Nexstim is a medical technology company developing and marketing pioneering navigated non-invasive brain stimulation systems for both therapeutic (NBT® system) and diagnostic (NBS system) applications. Nexstim's NBS system is the only FDA cleared and CE marked system based on navigated Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (nTMS) for the pre-surgical mapping of the speech and motor cortices of the brain.

Based on the same technology platform, the Company has developed the Navigated Brain Therapy (NBT®) which is CE marked for the treatment of stroke, major depression and chronic neuropathic pain. The NBT® system is currently in a supplemental Phase III study, E-FIT trial, which will recruit 60 patients. The trial is expected to complete in Q2 2018, allowing Nexstim to file for FDA clearance. FDA clearance would allow Nexstim to start marketing and selling its NBT® system for stroke rehabilitation in the USA.
