Press release, Helsinki, 29 October 2021 at 9 AM (EEST)
Nexstim Plc (NXTMH:HEX, NXTMS:STO) ("Nexstim" or "Company") has received an NBS system order from a hospital in Europe.
Nexstim’s NBS (Navigated Brain Stimulation) system is used, for example, in planning neurosurgery or radiation therapy after a patient has had a diagnosis of a brain tumor or other disorder. When the lesion is predicted to be close to functional areas of the brain—such as those responsible for speech production and limb movement —the brain maps generated with NBS can be invaluable when deciding the best, personalized treatment option for the patient. This specific NBS system also includes the software of an NBT® (Navigated Brain Therapy) system, allowing the system to also be used for therapeutic treatments.
Mikko Karvinen, CEO of Nexstim commented: “We are happy to welcome a new hospital to our user community. As mentioned in our Business and Clinical Update that was released last week, we have been happy to see growing interest in the NBS systems that enable using the system for both diagnostics and therapy treatments. This combination offers our customers opportunities for multi-departmental utilization of systems.”
